Ditzy DeVoid and IQ45, Two Songs

“Oh Donnie Boy,” or “Orange Is the New Slack” (to the tune of the oh-so-appropriate “If I Only Had a Brain”)

I just while away the hours
A-tweetin’ in my bower,
Consulting with TV.
I don’t care for cogitating,
I just sit here agitating
While I’m watching Hannity.

Think I’ll order some hamburders
And tweet out some diverters
From the latest breaking news
’bout the crimes I’ve perpetrated
And the folks I’ve terminated
For developing a clue.

Oh, I-I-I can’t tell you why
Burning fossil fuels warms the Earth,
I care only for increasing my net worth.
A man is measured . . . by his girth.

I would not be just a nothin’,
My head all full of stuffin’
And neediness and pain.
I wouldn’t be insane, erratic;
I might be quite democratic
If I only had a brain.


To Ditzy DeVoid, aka Betsy DeVos, aka No-Cluella De-Shill, Younger Sister of Cruella (to the tune of “My Way”)

I’ve many had,
Like who was Dad,
And whom I married.

I’ve worried not,
O’er life’s great storms
I’ve, heedless, ferried.

I’ve learned
To con the pawns;
To feed upon
Their dreams was child’s play.

And in my work
I didn’t shirk,
To do it AmWay.
