Subject: RE: Songs For The Age Of Trump
I keep thinking of Elvis Costello's Tramp The Dirt Down . It was originally written about Margaret Thatcher and includes this verse:

Well I hope I don't die too soon
I pray the lord my soul to save
Oh I'll be a good boy, I'm trying so hard to behave
Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live
Long enough to savor
That's when they finally put you in the ground
I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down
