Talking German Wahlgetoese, Or ‘Who Is The Clown?’

(Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song about Steinbrueck-Steinreich, Diplomacy & Clowns)

In Germany there is rumbling in the air,
“Wahlgetoese” as they say.
The Steinbrueck candidate reaches Steinreich levels,
promotes himself as the little devil
that at last downgrades politics into the vulgar:
It’s the image-suicide of the Social Democrats
and of their funny star.

Framing other politos as clowns won’t help
and it surely won’t create the needed friends.
But friends we need for European Unity,
for Europe intelligent and able to see
that we, the people, don’t need troublemakers on top
making our Europe into a big flop.

What then would Mr. Steinbrueck-Steinreich say
if as clown he is portrayed,
a clown of the German-European-Reich,
the Social Democratic suicide?
The German people need the real answers and not tricks
or publicity stunts of a vulgar rich.

The German Wahlgetoese will be without end,
But I hope the people will not bend
to the thrill of nonsense and a painful end
of needed progress, justice and common sense.
Politos are already vulgar enough,
now it’s time to change and bring the real stuff, friends!
