Filk

October 31, 2017 8:29 AM

Evilspork and I were brainstorming in chat about Political filk to the tune of "Gilligan's island". I'm not a musician, but I thought I'd stick some of the lyrics we came up with here in case someone wanted to run with them

Just sit right back
And you'll hear a tale
A tale of a President,
That started at a press conf'rence
At a golden tow'r.
The Veep was a Hoosier Right-wing man,
The Skipper a venal cur.
but then Steele did leak his dossier
that told of golden show'rs
told of golden show'rs.

Then Meueller started getting rough,
Subpoenas out were tossed.
If not for the outrage of the FOX news crew
The White House could be lost.
The White House could be lost.

FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS! the orange man cried, not a single truth was told
