Business as Usual for Chemical Plants
Washington Post, DC - 8-11-03 By Gary Hart

In the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Bush administration, working with Congress, moved quickly to shore up homeland security in some of our most critical areas. Airports are now safer, and some municipal water supplies are better protected. But the government has failed to plug a gaping hole in homeland security: our vulnerable chemical plants. ...

 There's a yellow Bush in Texas, that's where he loves to be.
 Where Dub can dodge the media, evading scrutiny.
 He cries so when he leaves there, it nearly breaks his heart.
Let's help him lib'ral voters, from Crawford never part.

 Dubya's hiding out in Texas, where he so loves to flee.
 He drags his top aides with him, to swelter in the heat.
 Loves to torture pals and press and staff, with runs that tax the heart.
 Survivors get a tee-shirt, but they cannot wait to part.

 Dubya keeps the money flowing, fund raising from the right.
 They pay big bucks to see him, though Dubya's not too bright.
 They know that he'll remember where he got those piles of dough.
 A promise of returns so great, their wealth will quickly grow.

 An elitist little hustler, from Texas so he claims.
 His eyes are small and squinty, they darken when he's blamed
 For his speeches which are packed with lies, and manifold misdeeds.
 Cause the yellow Bush of Texas, just cannot take the heat.

 But soon we're going to bounce him, for the man has got to go.
 We'll say good-bye to Cheney, and Ashcroft and Karl Rove.
 We'll celebrate so gaily, when we're rid of right wing hoods.
 And the yellow Bush of Texas finally's Crawford-bound for good.
