Lyricist promenades through like Donald Trump on a good hair day ... singing about THE (missing) BEEF ... to the tune of "Hail to the Chief" {smile}


Having given up the delightful thought of writing lyrics to the tune of the Lone Ranger theme ("The William Tell Overture" ) [SOURCE: Rose's Patriotic Page] ... for tonight, anyway ... Lyricist gets right to the meat of it all ... vaguely. {smile}



RHETORICAL VERSE IN THE FORM OF A SONG
LYRIC RE-WRITE ... SUNG TO
THE MELODY OF "HAIL TO THE CHIEF"


[VERSE 1]
WHAT / IS the CRIME
THAT this BLOG has been pro-TEST-ing?

IS / THERE a CRIME?
Or just MORE RE-AL-I-TY?

WHAT / IS the CRIME
CUT-ler OUGHT to be con-FESS-ing ...

... IF / good re-POR-ters ASK
what's THIS / s'pposed to BE?


[BRIDGE]
YOU / claimed your AIM
was to FIND our age's LIN-coln.

WHAT did you DO
that caused SUCH rage and GRIEF?

WHAT was the CRIME?
And can IT be some-how UN-done?

Well, not undone -- Just add ...
... ONE slice of BEEF.



[VERSE 2]
THERE's / ONE[?] more SHOW
TO be FILMED near first October

WHEN / THE "de-BATE"
of "THE BEST" / shall be WAGED.

WILL / you just GET
some "fair" journalists who're sober ...

... to ask some questions like
the same ol' game's staged?



[BRIDGE/REPEAT]
YOU / claimed your AIM
was to FIND our age's LIN-coln.

WHAT did you DO
that caused SUCH rage and GRIEF?

WHAT was the CRIME?
And can IT be some-how UN-done?

Well, not undone -- Just add ...
... ONE slice of BEEF.
