Ode to Spokesperson Kellyanne (to the tune of Leonard Cohen's "Marianne," and he'd be really upset that I stole his tune, or maybe not)

Ode to Spokesperson Kellyanne

(Tune: “Marianne,” by Leonard Cohen, who’d be really upset that I stole his tune; or, maybe not)

By David Hartley Mark

                                                Look closely at the TV Camera my little Darlin’
                                                I’d like to try to read your lips
                                                Do you really believe in all that balderdash
                                                That flows when your ruby mouth unzips?

                                                Chorus:
                                                So come on, Kellyanne
                                                It’s time that we began
                                                To tell some facts
                                                And stop being lax
                                                About your Master’s plan

                                                We know you hesitated to take the job he gave
                                                We thought you had some morals left
                                                But when he waved ‘fore you that salary
                                                You ran and grabbed it like a theft

                                                Cho:
                                                So come on, Kellyanne
                                                It’s time that we began
                                                To stand in fear
                                                ‘Cause Heaven’s near
                                                You cannot serve Satan

                                                I love when you flip your blonde hair back and forth
                                                I love when you smile and giggle loud
                                                But when you tell us all that—I can’t say
                                                That stuff, one day, won’t make your kiddies proud

                                                Cho:
                                                So come on, Kellyanne
                                                It’s time to renounce the Klan
                                                White House is Major League
                                                Don’t claim fatigue
                                                Or nod at the barman

                                                I guess my song won’t make you change your mind
                                                It’s gonna be a long four years
                                                Your place in history is sure, we know
                                                But you’re gonna cause a whole lot of tears

                                                Cho:
                                                So come on, Kellyanne
                                                It’s time for you to man
                                                Up, and tell your Boss to go to—
                                                Well, I’m done. You’re just

                                                Another chessman….
