The Misfortune Teller ("Buffaloed Boy")

Buffaloed Boy

Buffaloed Boy,
The buffaloed girl has tamed you;

Made you her toy,
While siding with those who flamed you.

Poor little goy,
How AIPAC and she have claimed you.

What Chutzpah! Oy!
Caving-in quick has named you:

Sauce with no soy.
Dick Cheney’s taunts have framed you:

Useless and coy;
Chicken-hawk “threats” have shamed you.

Blind to the ploy,
You still can’t see why we’ve blamed you

For taking such joy
In losing to those who’ve gamed you.
