(with apologies to e.e. cummings)

(of Romney-Ryan Land I speak
sweet morons gather roun'
who does not dare to stand or sit
may take it lying down)

down with Obamacare
and anything else humane
for everyone goes to ERs
in Romney-Ryan Land

(for Romney-Ryan Land is a place
that's as simple as simple can be
and was crafted that way on purpose
for simple people indeed)

down with Reproductive Rights
and all that feminist fuss
coat hangers pleased our grandparents
an aspirin will work for us!

(and Romney-Ryan Land is a place
that's measured by bankers well stocked
where it's lucky to live on Wall St.
and the Boehner lies down with the Koch)

down above all with the poor
and everything Jesus liked
for the Bible is empty words
to the herd-like Christian Right

(but only sameness is normal
in Romney-Ryan Land
where positions are like tissues--
mouthed once, and then discarded.
