.... and having perpetrated it, I found it's rearranging and, ahem, extending itself further as events unfold today. I won't repeat the offence, honest.

(Dr M J Carter)

Tune: Lerner and Lowe: I've grown accustomed to her face,
from My Fair Lady

Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn .... [click]

I've grown allergic to his face,
His everlasting cheesy grin;
I've grown allergic to the way
       he blethers night and day,
He laughs, he cries,
       his greed, his lies

Are so repulsive to me now,
He's really got beneath my skin ---

Whenever he comes on,
       then I turn off the TV set;
Somehow I would love to watch
       the news again ....
                and yet

I've grown allergic to his waste,
       the haystack of his hair,
Allergic to his

[Additional freeform discussion: contributions please]

We've grown allergic to his face,
His stutter when his speech begins,
Backed by a motley crew
       he chose for lack of clue,
He's gone too far:
       "L'État, c'est moi"

Is all too blatent for us now,
Beyond our tolerance for spin ---

He found that playing life for laughs
       made him the teachers' pet,
A wizard wheeze to dodge
       responsibility ....
                and yet

We've grown allergic to that taste
       of bullshit in the air,
Allergic to his
