Composed in commemoration of the “Walk Like and Egyptian” million-person march on Washington, DC, September 9, 2013, with apologies to Hughes Mearns.
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a birther who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away…
A million strong were called to be,
The birthers waiting there for me
But when I looked around the Mall
I couldn’t see them there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door… (slam!)
Rallies, marches everywhere
Teem with birthers who aren’t there
They weren’t there again today.
Oh, how I wish they’d go away
