Songs

 

Moscow Mitch Blues

 

Every day I got the Monday Blues

Every day Mitch is in the news

It’s all about the money

and he’s got plenty

It’s all about money

and I aint got any

Every morning I got those Monday Blues

 

Every day I got the Monday Blues

Every day Mitch is in the news

I’d never vote Republican

Except for Abe Lincoln and

I always do the best I can

But every morning I got those Monday Blues

 

Every day I got the Monday Blues

Every day Mitch is in the news

It’s all about the money

and he’s got plenty

and I aint got any

Every day I got those Mitch McConnell Blues

 

Some day

This I pray

Moscow Mitch will just go away

I got nine grand children

Who want to have their day

to do their work and then to play

 

They don’t have Mitch’s needs

They don’t have Mitch’s greed

 

I got sons and a daughter

they want pure clean water

and clean air to breathe

they want elections that are free

elections that are fair

and oh yeah affordable health care

 

They don’t want these blues

These Moscow Mitch Monday Blues

Vote for Amy McGrath

Save us all from these blues

These Moscow Mitch Monday Blues

 

 

Moscoal Mitch

[to the tune of 16 Tons, written by Merle Travis

but sung best not by Tennessee Ernie Ford but

by the great Bo Diddley]

Ronald Reagan said Man is made out of greed

A rich man’s made out of money and need

For the poor man’s skin and the worker’s bones

For people to think that they’re all alone

 

He blocks 16 bills and what does he get

Corporate money and a private jet

Saint Peter don’t you call him ‘cause he can’t go

He sold his soul for the company’s dough

 

 

He was born screamin’ “I want what’s mine”

His daddy said “Son that’s just fine

You block 16 bills that the people need

And sell your soul to the corporate greed”

 

 

He blocks 16 bills and what does he get

Corporate money and a private jet

Saint Peter don’t you call him ‘cause he can’t go

He sold his soul for the company’s dough

 

He was torn one morning by troublin’ pain

But Money ‘n Power was his middle name

He opened his mouth and then started lyin’

Said work in the coal fields and stop your cryin’

 

 

He blocks 16 bills and what do you get?

Dirty water and air and student debt

Hacked elections by his Russian friends

Pain and misery that never ends

 

There’s an election comin’ don’t you step aside

People have fought and some people died

But together we can vote and we can win

And put an end to Moscow Mitch’s sin

 

 

He blocks 16 bills and what does he get

Corporate money and a private jet

Saint Peter don’t you call him ‘cause he can’t go

He sold his soul for the company’s dough

Moscow Mitch ain’t Picky

 

POEM Mitch Ain't Picky

Mitch ain’t picky

His fingers are sticky

It ain’t so funny

He likes coal money

$176,000 from Peabody Energy

 

Mitch ain’t picky

His fingers are sticky

He don’t like the US Post

He do like money the most

$208, 329 from United Parcel Service

 

Mitch ain’t picky

His fingers are sticky

He don’t like health care for all

But someday he’s going to fall

$171,300 from Blue Cross / Blue Shield

$257,650 from Kindred Healthcare

$216, 102 from Humana Inc.

 

Mitch ain’t picky

His fingers are sticky

He likes money changers

Those financial rearrangers

And I ain’s saying he’s corrupt

But he sure has filled his cup

About the only thing he hasn’t taken

if I am not sorely mistaken

is the church poor box

So keep your doors locked

Jesus must be terribly grieved

for Mitch made congress “a den of thieves.”

$143, 387 from KKR & Co

$168, 050 from JP Morgan

$183, 300 from Elliott Management

$177, 850 from Citigroup

I Walked Out

 

I walked out in to the woodlot

to see what I could see

 

The kudzu was dying

I’d like to believe

that my country

is still a democracy

 

Mitch has been a Senator

for 34 years

 

the kudzu can’t be killed

by any ordinary means

                                        

There is no Common

Wealth in Kentucky

it seams

Mitch makes cash

from his schemes

to take the wealth

from you and from me

 

I walk out in the woods

to stop the vine

that covers the South

to cut it, kill it,

stomp it out

like these politicians

“who advertise us out”

who love Russia now

What’s that all about?!

 

I walk out in the morning

with my saw and knife

and thoughts in my head

that are just not right

about this traitor Mitch

McConnell, son of a bitch!,

who sells out the country

to make himself rich

 

The kudzu vine has

big purple flowers

leaves that cover

the trees all over

that smother

the trees

and all opposition

to its insatiable need

to keep its position

like the president’s henchman

the corporate bag man

the quick cash delivery man

 

the rag and bone

my Old Kentucky Home man

who will do what he can man

who takes from the poor man

and gives to the rich man

 

It’s all according to plan

Man it’s not going to be easy

to kill this vine

that has covered the South

that spread for into the North

but for what it is worth

it can, it must, be done

 

with a  saw and a knife

or your weapon of choice

it’s your duty to take the life

of this foreign

invasive plant

whose name I can’t

say any longer

Resist Stay Strong

Resist Stay Stronger

Rules, again

Don't rhyme “Mitch” with “Son of a Bitch”. That's too easy.If you have read the above poem "I Walked Out" you will see that I didn't called Mitch a son-of-a bitch, though I do like the rhyme. The "son-of-a bitch"is used as an expletive, out of exasperation that these politicians, mainly Republicans, especially Mitch, but also many Democrats, are only serving their own interests, not ours.

You may be one of those poets who follow Allen Ginsberg's dictum "First Thought Best  Thought" which is okay if you consider poetry some kind of religion, but it makes for

some bad writing. Think about it. So even though your first thought is to rhyme

“Mitch” with “Bitch”, don’t. This is about Mitch not his mother, Julia “Dean” Shockley, who probably was a very nice person. 

 

Mitch the Hypocrite

 

Senator Mitch Hated on Obama

I won’t call him a son-of-a-bitch

I got nothing against Mitch’s momma

but Mitch needs to go. I wish.

 

Can someone write a better last line than mine?
