Here's one from back when nobody but a young dewy eyed community organizer from the wrong side of the border thought we'd elect a Commie President.

If your Daddy always paid your bills, then you would be last to go!
In Illinois or D.C., I've never written legislation.
Hope and change! And... change and hope! are all I need to run this nation.

I've got my cash, it's quite the stash, and I will spend it as I please.
I pledged WHAT? Soros says MoveOn.org, I've tyrants to appease.
Anointed not elected; let us not think of twenty-twelve.
Free health care, and roses everywhere; no depths I will not delve.
Forgiven loans, and pinafores and (why not?) Alinsky primers
I'm your blank screen, your empty suit, to put fruit on my kids' dinners.
I'll shit unicorns and rainbows--y amigos, si se puede!
Solar bikes on moonlit nights; at my name, you'll want to cry Mayday!

She's the best--she rules this nest, and "pulli domum adsidere"
It's bacon and waffles until I die, or out on my derri-
Airs, airs, (and a well-timed hook) have laid me low. Don't look funereal.
