The Haikus of G. W. Bush [18 Jan 2001|12:35pm]
this was posted on the board awhile ago, but i saved them...

They say cows don't vote
Republicans know better
get in the boxcar

Remember my dad?
I hope the fuck not, Bubba
I'll snap your jockstrap

If I write my speech
dandy groom in tux
marries somebody

So I came this far
smug lizard in a red tie
denied at the gate?

I bought a Corvair
a snake for Nader's mongoose
crawl to the White House

I've got my posse
Frank and Jesse James in suits
they liked money too

You want bad tv?
Don't I look like Chevy Chase?
Al and Ralph do not

Let's play Battleship
one game for the White House, Al
hit and sunk, you rubes

Dad bought fishing gear
for his last election day
we talked about trim

President me now
act like a duck long enough
you'll be asked to quack

You want a recount?
I want seven great big whores
oval office fun

Hate me already?
I am a dead shark today
hid under your bed

I've got my standards
if you can't sue it shoot it
lethal injection

Me or Al or me
you take Sally I'll take Sue
and F-L-A too

Heads it's me, you know?
call it in the air, Al Gore
Lincoln on both sides

You sue my ass off
I'll sue the fuck out of you
we'll blame the union

Some liquor, some cocaine
worry about the wrong things
my hand on your purse

I will have my way
I will always cut my half
out of the middle

This scenario
cooked up in advance by masks

Injection deters
coloreds is chimpanzees. When
is we going to learn?

We not held hostile
George aint no senators son
coal miners daughter

Tie another on
charge it to my daddys card
put it into drive

abortions is wrong
but is our children learning?
God, I need a drink

Hey, I'm not THAT dumb
it's all subliminable
gotta score some blow

child out of wedlock
that aint the born again way
vacuum it out girl

"Evening, offishur!"
"Please step out of the car, sir"
Is our children drunk?

florida ballots
Mrs. Goldstein of Palm Beach
her eyesight so bad.
