Blue Blue State

Rule by a fool isn’t cool, to be sure –
he couldn’t even say “nuclear” –
he talked like (and well, okay murdered) the poor
all instead of enduring their fate!
Rule by the rulers as cool as to be –
that’s what we call Meritocracy –
by anyone other than you but I see
your embarrassment redden to hate,
I see your embarrassment redden to hate – and I’m in a

Blue Blue State
a Blue Blue State.
Without your love I am utterly blue –
what in the world do you want me to do?
No don’t answer that, it’s okay, really, no, wait
