My Least Favorite Things (with apologies to Oscar Hammerstein II)

Agents in hazmat suits, bomb-sniffing dogs,
Right-wing conspiracy truthers in blogs,
Talking heads spouting the theory that clings –
These are among my least favorite things.

Fat heads who bloviate over the airwaves,
Proving to everyone daily that they’re knaves,
Sounding like idiots, living like kings –
These are among my least favorite things.

Votes being taken in old hallowed halls,
Senators showing that they have no balls,
Echoing sentiments LaPierre sings –
These are among my least favorite things.

When I feel good, and my heart sings,
And I dare feel glad,
Life adds to my list of least favorite things
And then I get f#*%ing mad…
