Bad Opera

Some say its Kabuki Theater

but I respectfully disagree

Its more like really bad opera

Practiced mediocrity

We hear the grand overture ringing

for the hero who is a tattler

And the fat lady you hear singing

is only Gerald Nadler

Theres chairman Schiff

as empty as Nessman’s office walls

Hes masquerading daily as a man

but he hasn’t any balls

And Nancy, that old crone

With her dentures all askew

orders more whiskey sours

while shes sorting out what to do

Its the comedy turned tragedy

right before our very eyes

Still the networks? They see nothing

Keep selling the same old lies
