If you visit Washington, DC
You will find it kinda spacey.
There’s just two parties and you must believe
Their God’s almighty or you’d better leave!

Perdition, perdition! You’re required to applaud,
But tune in your ears and get red and blue running fraud.

Watch the Hollywood budget surgeons
Being cut down by insurgents.
Paul’s gotta skim and Don’s gotta lie
But not for long before they fry.

Perdition, perdition! You can keep the greatest true faith,
And then writhe in hell as a powerless wraith.

Shortened parody of “Pollution” by Tom Lehrer. I put in many close similarities in the sound. This is an example of parody that does not make fun of, but gains meaning from its original.
