In olden days the Senate blocking
Bills was seen as something shocking,
But now, God knows,
Anything
Goes

When GOP reps with a state to sell
Shack up at Trump Hotel and
Swill Veuve Cliquots
Anything
Goes

The world has gone mad today
Kim Jong Un’s rad today,
And Trump fights today,
And gaslights today.
When Proud Boys today
Wear MAGA hats today
And beat up Bernie Bros

Although he’s not a great advancer
And women aren’t bound to answer
When he gropes low,
Anything
Goes

When the Taliban’s bounty setting
Isn’t given a thorough vetting
Corruption shows, but
Anything
Goes

Whenpostmasters skip court and wail
And tamper with all the mail
Until it slows,
Anything
Goes

If gridlocks you like,
If COVID stocks you like,
If last breaths you like,
If more deaths you like,
If steep curves you like
Or campaign pervs you like,
Why, nobody will oppose!

When every night,
The set that’s smart
Is intruding in Supreme Court parties that will expose,
Anything
Goes

The world has gone mad today
And Putin’s sad today,
And Flynn’s free today,
And Russians pee today,
When The Prez today
Evensays today
That only he knows

And though he’s such a lousy speaker
Barr may agree because he’s weaker and
Arrest his foes,
Anything
Goes

If abandoned fleets you like,
If tax cheats you like
If long ties you like,
If long lies you like,
If drippy dyes you like
With sweaty guys you like,
Why nobody will oppose!

And though Trump’s tribe proved they’re cancer
We no longer have to answer
To what they propose
Anything
Goes
