Aria in F Major: Requiem For Senator Ted Cruz's Campaign

Four photos of Ted Cruz's face that are joined to form a square, and each photograph is colored differently to resemble a Warhol painting.

That candidate who's called Ted Cruz,
His jokes bad taste do not amuse,
All gloom and doom he does accuse,
New York west coast lib’ral values.

Disliked aloof he just can’t woo,
People of color and women who,
Want equal rights long overdue,
That’s who we are red white and true.

Bombastic crude with a short-fuse,
His schemes repeal the right to choose,
In interviews he says he'll screw,
The middle class that's me and you.

Fools the voters
With what's unsaid
He markets hate.
A man we can’t admire
That loves to set brushfires
A brain like a pismire
Who looks like a vampire.

With no friends in the U.S. Senate,
Can't get along he only upsets it,
Changed his name to Texas Ted,
He's north of the border born and bred.

Obamacare’s out the door,
Gut Medicare and fund more war,
Those right-wing views seem like a ruse,
And too extreme for evening news.

He’s all for guns and Fox snooze,
And personhood just to confuse,
He lies he sins he quotes the Bible,
Jesse Helms’ best disciple.

Fools the voters
With what's unsaid
He markets hate.
Calls his leader a liar
Says our country's on fire
Everything is dire
Unqualified town crier.

Rafael Edward Cruz,
Rebel rogue and bound to lose,
No Pennsylvania Avenue,
No Air Force One. No sip of cru.

Says the GAYS  are too taboo,
Pardon my French merci beaucoup,
His Princeton brain does misconstrue,
So out of touch he's got no clue.

So long au revoir we bid adieu,
False prophets burn in Texas too,
The Father Son and Holy Ghost,
The Donald dude will miss him most.

Fools the voters
With what's unsaid
He markets hate.
Class he can’t acquire
Liar pants on fire
Makes us all perspire
Political quagmire.

Bigots should retire.

I want to say thanks for commenting. I don’t think people say ‘thanks’ often enough and I know that it’s a big step to go from “lurker” to “participant”. It means a lot to me that you decided to take the time to comment on a post, and join the conversation here. I think we have a great community and your presence can only make it stronger.
