Tricky Joe McCarthy’s Dick
(upon hearing of Joe Biden's acceptance of the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination)

Red-baiting, Russia-gating,
Nixon and McCarthy set the “standard.”
Tricky Dick, Tailgunner Joe,
Now have Democrats in tow;
Down through Hades’s depths they go;
Blaming each and every woe
On some guy named Putin: ‘Oh!
Vladimir stepped on my toe!’
Trying hard their chance to blow;
Saw two roads and took the low;
Joined Republicans to sow
Dragons’ teeth, those seeds that grow
“Soldiers” pissing at the ones they slandered.
