The Manchurian Candidate

They have used up

all their aces,

now they're diggin'

from the bottom

of the deck,

for that Trump card, 

of a million faces,

The Joker,

of the Manchurian Sect,

a ruthless power broker,

to pursue a palace coup d'e'tat

His face a straight

flush as in poker,

His gaze of flat affect,

spying that queen,

with the diamond choker,

His words an assault 

in full attack

to murder America

and set us back,

to zero,

place your bet,

to hell with 

the more the merrier,

and to assassinate

the character

of the hero vet!
