The Toad and The Peacock
The croaking sound heard up and down the road
was the noise of a oily green female toad.
She spoke as she hopped, an expert on everything
She promised prosperity, while passing out taxpayers’ bling
“Follow me down the road and I’ll make your dreams come true.”
She spoke to all as if they were her children that didn’t have a clue
“Racial harmony, free healthcare, and fifteen an hour
This is easy to do when you put me in power.”
And hopping right beside her is the man who would be king.
Once a bitter enemy, he was now her puppet on a string
With a phone, a pen and a wave of the hand
He’s made it his mission to see how much debt this country could stand
With all the full time job losses, no raises and company cut backs
He’s leaving a federal debt that might make the toad squirm in her slacks
But she smiles on knowing she’ll make the job creators pay her tax
And besides in true Democratic fashion she owns all the super Pacs
“But goods will be cheaper to the poor,” she argues. “Due to NAFTA product,
And if that’s wrong the FBI will clear me of any misconduct.
So follow me to the election.” said the oily green pant suited toad.
With her minions in tow, she hopped along but suddenly slowed.
Coming into view on a collision course came a strutting peacock.
And right behind him was the giant mass of his hat wearing flock.
“We’re gonna make this country great again,” the rooster crowed
Oh you’re the great visionary, save us now, the praises overflowed
“While solving all your problems, we’re gonna build a wall”
“And our neighbors to the south will pay for it all”
“But what if it’s made out of paper mache?” a woman began to bawl.
“Get her the hell out,” the peacock snapped. “She’s got a lot of gall.”
“How dare I be questioned” cried the rooster. “I’ll send out a snotty tweet.”
And for his believers he spread his feathers bathed in his conceit.
“Well lookie who’s here,” crowed the peacock.
“It looks like crooked toadie crawled from under a rock.”
“Do I hear the great slum lord?” shot back the toad.
“The bird of broken contracts, bad manners and hair air blowed.”
“I see you’re back from your Hamptons’ vacation chalet.
What was rent this time? 100K?”
“Those are mighty nice digs for someone who is dead broke
Are you trying to sound like a regular Joe or just blowing smoke?”
Croaked Toadie, “Let’s worry about the world and your ban on Muslims
They’re just looking for opportunity and you stop them at Customs.”
“No worry about you.” said the bird. “America thinks I’m great.”
“I can’t wait for the debates and I’ll set you straight.”
“The debates will show inexperience,” croaked the toad. “And all will remember
When it comes time to cast that ballet in November.”
One thing is certain, stated the bird. “You and your spouse
Will not have another chance at affairs in the White House.”
So they both cried at once, “In order to keep the faith
Vote for me on November Eighth.”
