Antibirtherish

Composed in commemoration of the “Walk Like an 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

    I read this and thought “Man who sold the world”.
    Apparently I wasn’t off by much.

    Well done.

    Now, I want to hear how the birthers explain this absolute fiasco.

    Let me guess…the Freemasons wrecked the transmissions of the buses carrying the millions to Washington…

    Actually they’re blaming us. Apparently we were so nasty we skeered people away

    You know, it takes true conviction and fiber to be willing to take a public stand for your beliefs. To endure public scorn on principle.

    And the sum total of birthery fiber was on display … 😛
