Athwart the Tide

Look! Mark Shea got a shave and lost some weight!
He’s showing off the flesh of which he’s proud.
He stands athwart the tide of MAGA hate.

Abortion rights in every damn red state
He will defend – and never give a cowed
Look. Mark Shea got a shave and lost some weight:

He’s looking pretty and he’s feeling great.
He’d also like to say he’s well endowed.
He stands athwart the tide of MAGA hate,

Making advances at a stunning rate.
Under is how his foes will soon be plowed.
Look: Mark Shea got a shave and lost some weight.

He’s back in fighting trim. His every trait
Prepares him to maintain the vows he’s vowed.
He stands athwart the tide of MAGA hate—

And victory is sure to be his fate.
He says it openly. He says it loud.
Look! Mark Shea got a shave and lost some weight!
He stands athwart the tide of MAGA hate.
