"Hello, kids, I'd like to welcome y'all to the circus, my name is Rudi,

my own puppet show got canceled, but then Donald through me a life buoy.


I'm an echoing marionette--no matter how outrageous, I'll spout a defense,

never mind if my excuses for Donny's behavior make absolutely no sense.


I'm an evil bendy who contorts to fit whatever outrageous atrocity he says,

because I myself, didn't have big enough brassers to be pres.


I had dreams of the big chair myself, until I saw people laughing,

so I got this job in Donny's circus, I'm in charge of defense and of crafting


ludicrous reasons for his behavior, and why he says the shit he does.

In the evening, when y'all go home, I sweep up crap, cause I'm a never-was,


at least according to The Donald--yes, I smile, and dance a jaunty jig,

because I'm happy with the dregs I get, hell, I'm happy to have any gig!


So, enjoy the circus, and don't forget to donate, and drink some free Kool-Aid,

happily donated by Fox News, and join the sloping-forehead crusade!"
