Take Him Out

by Chris O’Carroll

(to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game“)

Here I am at the ball game!
Why am I getting booed?
I killed the leader of ISIS today.
(The Kurds didn’t help me at all, by the way.)

Fans should cheer, cheer, cheer for my genius,
But I’m not hearing applause.
Sounds like this whole crowd’s human scum
Who think I break laws.
