Buzz Ballad: A Portrait Sculpted of Sand

—apologies to Pat Boone and to Patsy Cline, and “Love Letters in the Sand”

To start the Convention

Democrats hailed The One

With a portrait sculpted of sand

Ah, but the elements

Eroded and put dents

In their portrait sculpted of sand

A monument worthy of a

Tin-pot dictator

Is as close as he’ll get to

A portrait on Rushmore

May his Presidency

Like this gross tribute, be

Just a portrait sculpted of sand

A monument worthy of a

Tin-pot dictator

Is as close as he’ll get to

A portrait on Rushmore

May his Presidency

Like this gross tribute, be

Just a portrait sculpted of sand
