the lovable antics of Bush, Chertoff, and Brown

As Barbara Bush noted without hesitation,
The evacuee mood’s surely one of elation,
Given their government-funded vacation,
Quadrupling Texas’ Black population.

For Chertoff the whole situation was droll:
New Orleans, he noted, is under control.
Let’s give our thanks where they’re due
To Bushes and Roveses and Cheneyeses too.

The Department of Defense was magnificent
The levees received nothing more than a dent
Your average evacuee’s wearing a smile
With just minimal risk from the odd crocodile.

Meanwhile Brown plays it close to the vest,
And denies all reports of unrest -
If by unrest we mean there’s a riot.
That’s just silly—it’s wonderfully quiet!
The only noise now is the surf
Splashing over the Superdome turf.

What a wonderful thing is a government
That prizes the woefully incompetent.
Pay no heed to the gathering mob,
Brownie, you’re doing a heckuva job!
