Won’t Get Fooled Again

It’s hard to fool the solid, patriotic citizens of America’s heartland. Here’s another example, brought to us by the Des Moines Register:

John Ashcroft Is Coming To Town


Oh! You better watch out,
you better not cry,
you better not pout,
I’m telling you why:
John Ashcroft is coming to town!

He’s making a list,
He’s checking it twice,
gonna find out who’s naughty or nice:
John Ashcroft is coming to town!

They’ll know when you’re speaking out,
They’ll know when you dissent,
They’ll know when you don’t salute,
But they won’t tell where you’re sent!

You can read the whole parody online.
