Another Clever Poem
by Katy Zastrow DuBois

Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing? to be sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic

Following my recent poems, "Twas The Night Before Elections " and "The 'Bama Pokey", I swore off writing another. But then, I found I just couldn't help myself!

Here is another "obnoxious" poem to be sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

"Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?"
by Katy Zastrow DuBois

We lived through this election
And they didn't pick our guy-
Instead they picked Obama
Who will make our taxes high!
I guess we'll give democracy
A big 'ole fat goodbye!
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
You'll take a nation proud
And you'll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

They had the Panthers at the polls
They had Acorn on the street
If you run an honest campaign
Then I guess you can't compete
Integrity from candidates
Will lead to their defeat
ButTruth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
You'll take a nation proud
And you'll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

Defense cuts he's supported
Hurts our military so!
It keeps from them necessities
For combat when they go
The media smoothes it over
So the public doesn't know
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
You'll take a nation proud
And you'll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

His associates are nasty
And they make me want to gag!
They disrespect our country
And they desecrate the flag
But hush, don't speak against him
Or your mouth will get the gag
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
You'll take a nation proud
And you'll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

Four years in the future
We will vote him out the door
He could catch a ride with Teddy
( Can we 'vote out' Michael Moore? )
He'll claim " I couldn't do it all,
So could I have four more? "
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
You'll take a nation proud
And you'll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

If you do not want a candidate
That you will just abhor
Please call your local GOP
They need your help and more!
We've only lost this battle
BUT WE HAVEN'T LOST THE WAR!
Keep TRUTH still marching on!

Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What 'cha do-ing?
We'll always have our pride
And we'll never run and hide
We're TRUTH still marching on!
I would like to propose to everyone a silent protest on January 20th, Inauguration Day.

First, wear red clothing and an American flag pin; by wearing a flag pin ,you are showing support for our country and troops, no matter who is in office, and RED for Republican pride! We are a party of integrity and honor, and we should stand tall and proud! Second, if you have a flag flying at your home , lower it to half-staff just for that one day. I will always respect the office of the President, but I do not have to show approval for Obama and what he stands for.

Our military men and women are fighting a war overseas; while on deployment, they give 24 hrs a day -- and some give with their lives. They fight to keep our freedom and to preserve our way of life. Here at home, we are fighting our own war as well. We have some tough times ahead, and there is much work to do! Luckily for us, we won't need to give with our lives, much less 24 hrs a day- all we need to give is a little time. A small price for us to pay.

Consider voluteering. Contact the GOP or go to www.gop.com , at the top choose "take action" and then choose "volunteer" ... or Google your local GOP.
