In being "Right" there is always someone "Left" to tell the Truth. Why is someone that is always "Right" upset, when "Left" with the true facts? By Franklin Doppelganger

The Flip Flop 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,

There will be a flip flop tomorrow.
