O Pee Wee, how this weird world needs you now!
Once shamed and shunted off your rightful stage,
these days our righteous rapists take a bow –
and we elect ‘em rulers of our age.
You never touched a soul – except yourself,
and we esteemed you twisted, sick, and vile,
but that baton you waved, my little elf,
proves you a saint compared to pedophiles!
So Congress beats a drum, their rumba line
snakes slowly through both chambers, up some skirts,
and past the ATM that pays their fines
to shield the family values they assert.
I’m standing with you, Pee Wee! Point the way!
Lead with your left hand to a brighter day!
