I am a Divorced Democrat, where both parties have burnt the bridges to 90% of America. I just do not like flimflam politics.

The Flimflam Man


Wham bam thank you for your vote.

I was for it only yesterday,

The day before, I cannot recollect.

And a year ago - forget it.

But today I am against it.

I think so positively.

But I reserve the right tomorrow

To be for it, or against it.


Damn, now I forget,

What I am for, or against.

What was the question again?

Yes, I understand the question now,

And I will take it under advisement.


Excuse me sir.

But you are blocking my view.

I need to see my traffic sign.

Yes, I am remember now,

I am against it.

But why is it now

Flashing caution?


Why is that man out there

Flying a kite?

Why is that key

Upon my traffic light?

I hope he is not

A Ben Franklin Liberal,

But there is a storm

Brewing up in America.


Zap crackle pop pop pop.

Have you ever seen fried flimflam?

That when the truth hits the fan,

With his flimflam fans,

It is a Liberal Franklin out “Right” lie.

But what is “Left” may be the truth.

Let the flimflam man decide for us.


He does like greed,

I mean Franklin green.

Especially save in safes overseas,

Secret Swiss flimflam accounts.

And Bermuda flimflam tax havens.

He does like outsourcing greed’s Franklin.

And try to fry those that fly a Free Speech kite.


There is one thing

About a flimflam speech,

That after hearing it

You have to go.

And that is certainty.
