Hi All,

FOWL sent this song he wrote to me in my emails, but really it's too beautiful to leave unheard by all.

Here is the song:

Lesser Evilism; Baddy's Song

This system’s really okay.
Every 4 years I get my say.
It kind of sucks when who you pick is losing,
You can’t cheer on the wars while boozing.
You gotta pretend like you really care,
About the brown people over there,
But soon enough the tides’ll turn,
Then you can smile while the cities burn.

Does a cluster bomb hurt less, when a Democrat sends it?
Does your paycheck feel less light when a Republican spends it?
Does Corporate welfare seem okay when the Republican’s are in power?
Do you love Lockheed Martin more when it’s the Democrats hour?

Is Ralph Nader only there to split the vote?
Was Perot running just to slit the Republican’s throat?
Are you happy just to be on the boat?
You never thought a third engine might help you jump the moat?

Do you want the king, or the king’s brother?
Cast your vote then you can’t complain when they smother
You with their phony tax,
To fund their illegal attacks
Don’t matter if we put them in power
You gotta invent enemies if you want to keep basking in that military golden shower.

So long as there’s a threat, the sheep don’t complain
That their retirement savings kept,
Have been inflated down the drain.
I don’t think I’d even mind a draft,
Can’t afford no kids anyways.

Nice work FOWL, you're a friggin musical genius!

Lesser-evilism is war.
