Is Mark Shea sucking on the welfare tit?
Of course he is – and with unbounded pride.
Thus with the poor his blubber is allied.
Thus does he give vile Christianists a fit.
A parasite who thinks that he’s a wit,
He bodies forth self-righteous gab, and snide,
Against the fools who’ve questioned him, or tried.
Why should he get a job and all that shit?
It is an honor to support Mark Shea,
O you who think your dollars are your own,
O you who fail with true delight to pay
Your taxes! As apologist he’s known—
But sorry he will never be to say
You owe him. Get it? Modify your tone!

Why does he always pitch the welfare state?
Because he is himself a public leech.
Fierce self-reliance he can’t help but hate.
Why does he always pitch the welfare state
And, doubly asinine, pontificate?
Why does he stomp and bellow, hop and screech?
Why does he always pitch the welfare state?
Because he is himself a public leech.
