This Young Man
This young man, he played one.
He played knick knack from Vietnam,
With a Guard-track, dodge-the-draft,
Leave the boy alone.
This young man stayed safe at home.
This young man, he played two.
College classes sliding through,
With the Skull-and-Bones, frat-clones,
Pour the boy a brew.
This young man went driving stewed.
This young man, he played three.
High in Harken Energy,
With a quick-drop, ditch-the-stock,
Dodge the SEC.
This young man got off scot-free.
This young man, he played four.
Major league investment score.
With a big-wheel, insider-deal,
Give the boy his dream:
Owner of a baseball team.
This young man, he played five.
Led the "Build a Ballpark!" drive.
With a kickback, special-tax,
Line up is the best,
Also-rans in A.L. West.
This young man, he played six
Sold the team to Thomas Hicks.
With Clear Channel, money-funnels,
Texas needs his flare,
He's "Governor Electric Chair."
This young man, he played seven.
Has a backer up in heaven.
With the right-wing, Christian thing,
He's the favored Son.
This young man took Washington.
This young man, he played eight.
Sent the Army to Kuwait,
With a yellow-cake, total fake,
We'll win it in a walk.
This young man attacked Iraq.
This young man, he played nine.
New Orleans would be just fine.
With a Cat-4, at-the-door,
Counting up the dead.
Frowned when he flew overhead.
This young man, he played ten.
In Iraq and Afghanistan,
With a knick, knack, paddy whack,
A double Vietnam.
This young man's come rolling home.
