Cultural Marxism’s swell.
(If your aim is to end up in Hell.)
And by compliant fools
It is taught in the schools.
(And in corporate boardrooms as well.)
The Prime minister rubs his fat belly:
“New taxes? No! Not on yer nelly!
But a levy? – That’s great!
Here – meet my new mate –
My treasurer, Mr Ned Kelly.”
He’s been leading a perverted life.
He’s been found out and now he’s in strife.
But he claims that these asses
Are his lovely lasses,
And much prettier than his wife.
You claim that the media’s bent?
You’re wrong! It’s a very broad tent.
Journalists cheering Trump
Are much more than a rump;
Why they’re all of 7 percent!
“It’s shocking!” the poor monkey cried.
The duck rushed to save him – he tried
To rescue his friend,
But how would it end? –
Both monkey and duck are now fried.

What have the bloody Romans done for us?
And don’t dare say the roads and aqueducts.
Don’t cite the sanitation – make no fuss
About their Roman law – I think it sucks.
And sure we’ve better health and full stomachs;
Our fortunes increase and we all grow fat,
But we owe nothing to those Roman schmucks.
The Roman Peace! – I knew you’d mention that!
So what if they have peace-making down pat!
What have they done for us? I’d like to know!
Oh irrigation? – sure, they’re quite good at
Making the desert bloom – we now can grow
Such bumper crops. But answer me you clot!
What do we owe the Romans?…Well…a lot.

They might as well be popping pills
As they trip on their internet thrills.
As they sit on their bums
And the data stream numbs –
Conversation, technology kills.
The time has come Fido, I fear.
You can see in my eye there’s a tear.
I love you, but dammit!
You’re killing the planet!
So I’ll drop some lead in your ear.
