MLMM Music Challenge

70CEE9ED-1D85-4445-ABAA-F0B28B07B8F2My blogging buddy, Jim Adams, is now part of the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie team and he is hosting one of the MLMM music challenges. The latest of Jim’s MLMM challenges is one he titled “The Mighty Quinn.” In that post, he provided the lyrics to the Bob Dylan song from which Jim got the title for his post. Then he challenged his readers to “focus on that song and use it for inspiration in any form of creative expression (including but not limited to short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, etc.).”

I hadn’t really planned to write my own post in response to this particular challenge, but then I read this post from Jim. Jim was reviewing the reception his participation in the MLMM Music Challenge was getting, as this “Mighty Quinn” post was his third. And when I read Jim’s post, I saw that he posted this comment:

“I was hoping that Fandango might stop by and write the parody, ‘When Trump the sycophant gets impeached, everybody is going to jump for joy,’ but no such luck.”

Well, Jim, my friend, far be it from me to disappoint you. So, I have taken Bob Dylan’s “The Mighty Quinn” lyrics and given them the Fandango treatment.

And now, sung (loosely) to the tune of “The Mighty Quinn,” I present you with “The Idiot Trump.”

Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump
Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump

Nobody’s building ships and boats
Some are removing monuments, others are squeezing others’ throats
Everybody’s in despair, every girl and boy
But when Trump the idiot gets impeached, everybody’s gonna jump for joy

Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump

I like to go just like the rest, I like my bourbon neat
But standing behind that panty waste, despite that he’s such a cheat
Is putting his GOP sycophants out on a limb
But when Trump the idiot gets here, all the lemmings gonna run to him

Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump
Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump

Let me do what I wanna do, I can’t decide ‘em all
Just tell me where to put ‘em and I’ll tell you who to call
Nobody can get no sleep, there’s someone on everyone’s toes
But when Trump the idiot gets here,
Most Americans are gonna get hosed

Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump
Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump

Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump
Come all without, come all let’s jump
You’ll not see nothing like the idiot Trump

    A very enjoyable song parody and I think you should give this to Rainbow Randy. Thanks for participating.

      I tried to click on the Mister Linky thingie, but it didn’t work. It seems just to be an image with no link. Or is it just me?

        Fandango, it’s that box just under the Mister Linky that you click.

              I finally got it. Normally I click on the Mr. Linky image and it takes me to the page. But this time there was a little, barely visible square below the image and I clicked on that. That got me there. I think Jim May have the thing set up strangely.

              I have no idea about html, but I do know if you use it, you have to shift to the html tab to insert it into your post. I learned that from FF.

    Good poem. I like it. It’s rhythmic and if you are going to hate someone, you might as well have a beat behind it!
