Who is Miss Spoke?

If a Statesman make a rude remark
When it’s revealed it’s not a joke
They apologize to make it better
They lay the gaffe on “Miss Spoke.”

When our leaders tell stories
At the oposition lies and jokes they poke
They just laugh it off
And Blame it on “Miss Spoke”

They make fun of Tea Parties
And make crude remarks about the folk
When confronted for an explanation
They blame it on “Miss Spoke”

Clinton made a racist remark
Bout Obama, when the news broke
He weaseled out of it
Laid it on to “Miss Spoke.”

The lies and innuendoes about Gov. Palin
Her family and friends were almost broke
Hiring lawyers to reveal the truth
Her accusers said it’s caused by “Miss Spoke”

All cruelty can be erased
Whether near or remote
No hurt feelings anymore
Cancelled out by “Miss Spoke”
