Farewell, adieu to Gary Bauer.
We never thought that you'd be our
Next President. Too small. Too sour.
The countryside we'd have to scour
To find someone to put in power
Who's less like Dwight D. Eisenhower.
If bashing gays most every hour
Could get a wee campaign to flower,
You wouldn't head now for the shower.
