‘Bedlam’ — Lyrics To A Hard Rock Pop Song For The Trump Era

Apparently Trump said something like, “Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud, nipped, nipped in the bud.” in a speech. Sounds like hard rock song lyrics to me. Something from Limp Biscuit. So, here you go.

Bedlam
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

found verse by Donald J. Trump
please give credit if you produce or perform

when I came to the scene
there was bedlam in the streets
bedlam in the sheets
bedlam in the sheets
but that’s all over now
but that’s all over now
’cause I’m here and there
breaking heads, braking norms and rules

Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud
Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud
Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud

nothing will be the same now that here
everything you hold dear will be ended
no more bedlam ’round here I swear
everything square will be round
and my peg will be in it dear
just watch and see what happens next
I’m in charge now
I’m in charge now

girls let me grab the by the pussy
’cause I’m a celebrity
but I’m president now
I can do as I please
’cause The Mooch has my back
and that’s a fact
and that’s a fact
and that’s a fact

Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud
Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud
Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud

[bridge]
I’m in control
that’s how we role
that’s how we role
don’t you know

all the great powers want me contain
but only Putin has the right to that refrain
I do as I please, do as I please
you’ll see now that bedlam’s been nipped in the bud

Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud
Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud
Bedlam’s been nipped in the bud
nipped, nipped in the bud

Apocalypse 9/11 Redux: The Moment War Starts In Korea, Everything Changes

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

For those of us who were alive and politically active on that Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, we remember what was going on when we opened our eyes that morning before the towers were struck. The Bush Administration was coasting on fumes as was the economy. It seemed as though we were about to enter a recession and Bush would get blamed for it.

Then everything changed.

We woke up eight years later and realized we had been in a waking dream, a nightmare we couldn’t escape.

Now, about 20 years later, we find ourselves on the cusp of a horrific war with the DPRK (North Korea.) Estimates are that 500,000 people would die the first month of such a war and who know how many could die if the war became protracted. And that’s working on the assumption that WMD aren’t used at some point. The DPRK has made it clear that they don’t even consider chemical and biological weapons WMD in the first place, so if they felt cornered they probably would use both gratuitously not just on South Korea but on Japan as well.

What makes all of this really scary is the United States has an unhinged president looking for an opportunity to fire Bob Muller, who may finally get to Trump’s tax returns. So, given how batshit insane the political calculus of the Trump Administration is, it wouldn’t take a lot to think they wouldn’t blink an eye at a cost of life and property needed to have the cover to fire Mueller and assure not only keeping Congress Republican, but come within shouting distance of winning re-election in 2020.

But, really, who knows.

It could go either way. But Trump’s behavior is sufficiently unhinged that it’s enough worry about. It’s enough to think seriously about a monumental wag the dog situation that would be a tragedy of unprecedented levels.

This is a rambling attempt to give you some sense of my vision for the zine I’m working on, Covfefe Magazine. It is set to come out in print form in October. But we’ll see. Any number of disasters could strike.

I continue to work on my little zine concept, Covfefe Magazine. We’ll see how far it ends up going. I still hope to publish it in early October, but there’s a huge amount that could go wrong between now and then.

I am working on a little print zine for the Richmond, Va. area. It will come out in October. I’m having a lot of fun working on it so far. It’s circulation will be microscopic at first.

‘Don’t Bet Against The Mooch’ — Lyrics To A Rock Song

While I trying to not write song lyrics anymore because it’s pointless, I still enjoy doing it and the Trump Administration keeps generating song titles. So, you get this. This would be a really rocking pop-rock song.

Don’t Bet Against The Mooch
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

he’s the man who’s in charge
now that Spicy’s headed for the door
the world’s in flames but you know the score

don’t bet against him
now matter what you do
if you do you’re a fool
if you do you’re a fool
if you do you’re a fool

all I can tel you now
is watch and see
he’s going to break free
cause no matter what you do

don’t bet against the mooch
don’t bet against the mooch
don’t bet against the mooch

he’s the guy you call in
when you have shame and your wang’s small
because you have the gaul
to challenge it all

you say bitch all you like
we know who’s going to win any fight
the mooch is your guy in any battle
’cause he can ride any cattle

don’t bet against the mooch
don’t bet against the mooch
don’t bet against the mooch

[bridge]
the mooch is loose
the mooch is loose
he’s going to break it down
’cause you’re all clowns

the mooch has got the ear
of the president my dear
so in the end
no matter what you do

don’t bet against the mooch
don’t bet against the mooch
don’t bet against the mooch

Working On A Print Zine For #RVA

By Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I love zines. I love to write and a I love to take pictures — and I can layout a print publication fairly well — so it seems I have all the ingredients needed to pull off a zine that is decent. It isn’t going to happen anytime soon — probably will be a few months from now at best — but I think the finished product will be pretty cool.

I just need to be patient.

It will be interesting to see how everything does — or doesn’t — fall into place.
