But He’s A Liar

But He’s A Liar

The politician speaks with his forked tongue

Telling lies to everyone

Tells me he’s the only one

Who can get anything done

That he loves everyone;

Tells me Jesus had a gun

‘n that he’s really God’s son

While waving an artillery gun

But he’s a liar.

I despise him. I despise him. I despise him so much.

I despise him.

His breath smells like a lavatory

As he talks of setting people free

How wonderful it’s all going to be

While spreading vile conspiracy

And suppressing student literacy

Through dumb education policy

Suppressing votes most happily

While promising the earth to you and me

But he’s a liar.

I despise him. I despise him. I despise him so much.

I despise him.

He’s making more money than a film star

Driving around in his flashy car

Says he’s gonna be the new Czar

Spouting bitumen and fire

From the back of a boxcar

But all his predictions are dire

All his solutions are just bizarre

They’re not gonna get us very far

But he’s a liar.

I despise him. I despise him. I despise him so much.

I despise him.

He’s telling me he’s gonna make the country great

Promising us a better fate

Warning us not to wait

We’ll soon be waiting at God’s gate

Our enemies he’ll decimate

We’ll no longer be second-rate

All receive a hefty tax rebate

All who disagree can disappear and procreate.

But he’s a liar.

I despise him. I despise him. I despise him so much.

I despise him.

He’s singing the national anthem very loud

Of his country he’s very proud

Foreigners should not be allowed

Before the enemy he’ll be unbowed

We could all walk tall in any crowd

He’ll protect us with his mushroom cloud

Before him we should all be wowed

To us everything is vowed

But he’s a liar.

I despise him. I despise him. I despise him so much.

I despise him.

Opher – 17.8.2022

I wrote this with more than a nod to Bob Dylan. The politician could be Trump, Bolsonaro, Johnson, Erdogan, Oban, Modi, any of the loathsome Tory ERG and all populist, fascist scum.

I'd like to hear from you...
