By Tarzana Joe


There must have been some network payoffs
To put a chat on jobs and layoffs
Up against the baseball playoffs

Then some conniving double dealers
(And you know what they do to squealers)
Scheduled the Pittsburgh Steelers

With one man known to gaffe and botch
Did they want anyone to watch?

I watched although I had a hunch
There wouldn’t be a knockout punch

Here a jab and there a poke
Every time Joe Biden spoke
He said from 6 to 7:30
We’re for clean and you’re for dirty
We’re for sunshine, you’re for rain
We’re for pleasure, you’re for pain
We’re for flavored, you’re for plain
(The man is driving me insane)

Say what you want of what he lacks
Old Joe can sure make up his facts
No church will pay for contraception
Libya was no deception
Recovery is all perception

If there’s one take, then this is it
No one out there’s going to quit

So put your boots back on the ground
This fight will go another round
