The Ballad of Deadeye Dick
This is the story of a man named Cheney,
An American VP who wasn’t very brainy,
Seems one day after shooting at some food,
He shot in the neck a 78 year-old dude.
Nearly killed him that is, bird shot, hurt a lot.
Well the next thing you know the guy is in intensive care,
But nobody knows just why he is there,
He’ll survive thanks to his recuperative powers,
But they didn’t tell the press for 24 hours.
Kept it mum that is, they didn’t tell, kind of smells.
Now some blame Dick but that isn’t really right,
Even though the guy he shot was in plain sight,
Blaming the victim is one defence,
But Dick blames it all on bad intelligence.
Like Iraq that is, WMD, nothing to see.
