Under a bus she was unfurled,
A story bigger than BP,
Fox News, White House NAACP in perfect pitch,
Trying to oust Shirley.

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod
In the land of the brave and free,
“Fire her’ yelled O-Rei-Leee

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
We love you Shirley.

60’s civil rights this is indicative of,
While we felt we’d progressed instead,
Now your signature has value on Ebay,
We watched as you bled.

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
A story fueled by Fox News greed,
NAACP should take heed,
Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
Your vision we all should see.

A voice to be heard was your only plea,
A hunt in search of a witch,
Obama finally texted Shir-ley
Andrew Breitbart grins with glee,
Then YouTube & Fox TV,

Barack Obama (Click To Enlarge)

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
Victim of hubris of the bourgeosie.

Now That Our Sand’s Brown” by Rick London c2010 To The Tune Of Woody Guthrie’s

This Land Is My Land”

Dedicated to my wife Lee Hiller-London

Now that our land been damned by BP’s philosophy of Ayn Rand,
So we have brown sand,
From Grand Isle across the Gulf Stream waters,
This land does not belong to BP.

Dispursment’s a liquid toupee,
A toxin where the fish used to play,
It takes no banshee,
To know this toxic liquid is killing all that’s in the sea.

BP stumbled through its many missteps,
Now the gusher continues to squirt,
One thing we do know whatever life brings,
The Gulf Coast belongs to you and me.

Onto their lies they do cling,
As death and destruction they do bring,
“We’ll make it right” is the mantra they sing,
The Gulf belongs not to BP.

As I walked the beaches, no sign of life there,
BP had signs up, that said “No Trespassing”,
All I could think was “Who are they kidding”?
The Gulf beach belongs to you and me.

On cable news shows, I saw my struggling people,
I stood outside a church staring at the steeple,
As if it spoke to me, the church bells were ringing,
Get off of my land you damned BP.

Looks like a war zone, or some DMZ,
Our clear blue waters are now brown and gray,
Nothing is living, wildlife floating on their backs,
. Thanks to you, BP

July 7, 2010

Sad Company” (By Rick London c2010) To The Tune Of “Bad Company” by “Bad Company”

Dedicated To My Wife Lee Hiller-London

No mackerel shad, thanks to BP,
Dying dolphins, struggling in your greed.

A company so badly run,
Killed our whales with no whaling gun,
Oh 500 miles of tar balls on the sand,
Thanks to BP,

An Iranian Oil Company,
They first tried to deny,
Persian Oil Company,
All the wildlife died,
What a way to die.

Coast Guard & BP Patrols,
The Gulf Coast is appalled,
You claim to be British but your stocks are in Tehran,
Do you realize you’re hellbound?
At Grand Isle you create quite a flame
And Pensacola Bay.

BP needs to leave,
They gave it their best try,
It’s a sad company,
11 men have died.
All the fish have fried
SOLO

Oil grab,
This corrupt company,
All toxic debris,
Everything has died,
Remove your oil bit,
Sad company, Oh yeah—yeah
BP’s a sad company,
Everything has died.

4 generations of family business grieve,
Your heads in the sand,
BP needs to leave,
The entire Gulf & Bay,
Once clean now dirty,
Hold the tartar sauce,

Yeah,
BP’s a sad company,
Spill prevented with drilling mud.

“Mississippi Sound” by Rick London c2010 (Sung To The Tune Of “Mrs. Robinson” by S&G)

Mississippi Sound” by Rick London c2010 (To the tune of Simon & Garfunkel’s

Ms Robinson”

Dedicated to my wife: Lee Hiller-London

BP’s oil destroyed the Mississippi Sound,
The birds have died as well as fish below (a death so slow),
God help you please, Mississippi Sound,
The dolphins need a place where they can play,
Will BP pay?

YouTube puts up news coverage but you remove these video files,
The ocean’s a living hell along with the continental shelf.
The Gulf was once a place wildlife called home.

And look at all the destruction and its only just begun,
Have you not heard of quid pro quo? (Resentment grows).
At least no fear of whaling guns, as there are none.
No pelicans no birds of prey,
(An abandoned Bay).

Capping it is iffy may cause another spill to flow,
Most of us would be imprisoned for this mistake.
Meanwhile Deep Horizon emits a hellish flare.
The economy has hit the skids.

I remember tourists coming here to have fun,
We now know about your balloon and pony show.
I miss my Mississippi Sound,
Heaven knows its where I grew up and played.
Another day, its gone away.

Now its just a place where BP oil was strewn,
BP has sealed the wildlife’s fate.
Have you done this all along would you admit?
Or just too much to lose?
And a tv campaign designed to confuse.

Where’s our way of life we had a long time ago?
Its gone BP because of you (Everyone will lose)
Why did you destroy the Mississippi Sound,
(Why do you stay? Please leave we can only pray).

Blunder With The Rolling Stone (Song Parody by Rick London c2010) To The Tune Of Dr. Hook’s “Cover Of The Rolling Stone”

click to enlarge

Ah ha ha I believe anything. Hey StanLAY McChrystal… from the military you’re barred.
Looks like your career’s reached a bit of a plateau,
(The Prez has decided to replace you with a real hero General Petraeus)
The military has a conduct code you’ve always known,
I’m sure you’ve gotten thrills, think of all the kills from all the soiree’s you’ve flown,
But you gave up your pistol, just to get your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone, we understand power is your lover,

Stoned. Did you smoke much pot with your mother?

Stoned, is there anybody left to face?

Since your Blunder with The Rolling Stone,

(Don’t let me instill fear,  Stan)

You had the NATO and U.S. Forces from the Navy To The Marines,
Is that guy’s name “Bite Me”?
Time to sell that limousine.
And now your fate is sealed and signed,
Cause you’re career’s already blown,
Because you spout fiction, due to power addiction to the reporter at the Rolling Stone

Looks like from here on out you’ll be living undercover
Alone, Think you could move back in with your mother?
Gone, was it worth it just to find your face,

On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

TAKES ITS TOLL!
(Stan time to stop your bull)

With the Pat Tillman cover-up you really got a reprieve,
You kept the feds at bay.
We wonder of all your cover-ups, a lot or just a few?
Doesn’t matter now Lady Justice is about to weigh,
You’re runnin’ out of friends, on Capital Hill, ya know the type that money can buy,
Like Dylan once asked “Hows it feel to be all alone?”
In the limelight was it worth it being that demure?
When you blundered with The Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone- Better hope it don’t make it to the cover,
Your stoned, don’t you wish you were someone other,
The Prez is on the phone..about being stupid with The Rolling Stone.

Don’t you wish you’d just gone bowling?
Or found yourself a long-term lover?
You know you’re really just too sloppy

Since you blundered with the Rolling Stone, .

(Man, you look like a cow, just being a grunt, criticizin’ everybody. Shoot.)
