Big Brother in Bed

Sodomy is illegal in Texas
Number 3 Republican monster
Senator Rick Santorum
wants to keep it that way.

Ricky figures that if it’s legal for consenting men
to have sex in their own home,
next thing you know
mothers will be screwing their daughters
and husbands having affairs with sheep.

Gays are saying this is like
when Trent Lott
was gazing backwards on old Dixie
and turned in to a pillar of salt.

But:
Even the most demented Bushie
doesn’t publicly hate Blacks
or declare them spawns of Satan.

The Republican high command
is right behind Senator Ricky
backing him way up.

Those expecting an apology from Santorum
or his humiliating demotion
may grow bored and old
waiting at the gate of hatred.
