Donald at the Bat – Day 1039, Hark! The Russian Assets Sing (parody to ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’)

Day 1039, Hark! The Russian Assets Sing  (1)


Hark! The Russian assets sing,

Devin Nunes blithering.

Putin followed like a child,

Crazy charges reconciled.

There’s a pile of Donald’s lies

Rising high to reach the skies;

Yet Republicans proclaim,

It’s Ukrainians to blame.

Hark! The Russian assets sing;

Trump is Putin’s vassal king.


As impeachment’s drawing nigh,

We are fed lie after lie.

Putin wrote the Donald’s lines

And what Hannity opines.

There’s no evidence Ukraine

Caused our 2016 pain;

It’s a fictional account,

Fraudulent, it should not count.

As impeachment’s drawing nigh,

Trump repeats lie after lie.


If Ukrainians mixed in

They help Donald Trump to win.

Those who hacked were on his side.

Why are Donald’s kishkas fried?  (2)

If Ukraine helped Donald cheat,

They caused Hillary’s defeat.

Why should Trump investigate?

Shouldn’t he appreciate

That Ukrainians mixed in

And helped Donald Trump to win?


(1)  May be sung to “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” lyrics by Charles Wesley (1739) and George Whitefield, who modified Wesley’s original text.  Today’s familiar melody was adapted in 1840 by William Cummings from Felix Mendelssohn’s cantata written to commemorate Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of moveable type.
