Bewilderment , USA
On advice of my council , Dewey , Cheatem , and Howe
With this disclaimer I hereby dis-avow
Any intent to up-set or provoke
Or give cause for lament , cross my heart , hope to choke
Furthermore be it known , when things are misconstrued
Now that this has been shown , I cannot be sued
Were it so simple we'd avoid all that strife
And maybe get on with everyday life
But at least here at Passions things like this can be done
The one last great bastion where we still can poke fun .
To all future " offendees ' their heirs or assigns
But most surely " Balladeer" who by some strange design
Seems to have been found on one of my " lists "
Tempting me to expound 'bout the screws I will twist
