Hey, look over there!

A distraction from 'Buyer Beware,


and the non-stop ass kissing

of the media, what am I missing?


I really don't understand their fascination

with one man, that's right, America's favorite son,


I can't even bring myself to say his name,

a media-driven monster who controls the game.


If you don't know who he is, you're living under a rock,

or you're smart enough not to turn on the T. V., what a crock!


Oh, yeah, I promised a distraction of the distracting kind,

"Have you seen the flowers?' springs immediately to mind,


my grandma's time-honored and apparently, necessary trick,

for when you don't want to hear anymore about an ego-driven dick!
