I learned the truth in 2003
That politics was meant for professionals only
And Op-Ed authors with resumes
Who had an agenda to essay.
The Pulitzer Prizes I never knew
The FAUX News charades that they spewed
Were spent on faces more beautiful
After 8 long years I've learned the truth.
And those of us with ugly ID's
Lacking Teh Credibility
Desperately remain alone
Repenting good links left unknown
That echo through our memories
And call to say "Come dance with me."
And murmur vague obscenities
The Net isn't all it seems
To hopeful teens.
A blogger beset by fancy clowns
Whose links I never could put down
Said prosecute the ones who've served
They oughta get what they deserve.
The rich relationed fat VP
Who found his way to what he needed
With a guarantee of immunity
And no accountability
Remember those who fought the evil
Battling ideas they thought primaeval
Shrouded in integrity, dubious to you and me
Their financiers will gape at you
In dumb surprise now that payments due
Exceed Accounts Received
To those of us who knew the pain
Of accountability moments that never came
And those whose comments were never seen
Bouncing on the media trampoline.
It was long ago and far away
The world was younger than today
And dreams were all they gave for free
To ugly duckling commenters like you and me.
We all watch the news and when we dare
We imagine futures bereft of despair
Inventing presidents on their own
Who address war crimes very well known
They call to say come vote for me
Forget those sad obscenities
Noted by commenters like you and me
