Conclude the ban on offshore drilling,
Bush argued, and the price of oil
Will drop. But Democrats weren’t willing.
Bush said that they would rather spoil
Our summer driving on vacations.
But what about the amputations
Of jobs that made the working class
Safe from the rising price of gas?
The Democrats claim it’s revealing
That Bush chose an election year-
No doubt to help McCain’s career-
To argue for the ban’s repealing.
While they debate which way to go,
We’ll still be living on skid row.
