Maverick!

Damn. Here I’ve been down on John McCain, only to just find out that he’s a Maverick! Why had no one told me? This changes everything! A Maverick!
So I’ve written a little rap about his life story as one maverick to another.

Maverick!
John McCain
Nothing says rebellion like more of the same!

Maverick!
Broke all the rules
They tried to tame him with in exclusive private schools

Maverick!
That’s for sure!
Lists among his pastimes 19th century literature

Maverick!
Born to be bad
So he ran off to work in the same place as his Dad

Maverick!
Rocked the nation
Doin’ what was expected from his family for generations

Maverick!
If he was to run free
He would need the strict discipline of the mili-trie’

Maverick!
Told ‘em all to go to hell
By doing what was ordered of him honorably and well…

Maverick!
No prison could hold ‘im
Except the prison that held him. It really held him.

Maverick!
Cage him? Please!
Only ‘til high-level negotiations ensure his release, Bee-yatch!

Maverick!
John McCain
Nothing says rebellion like more of the same!

Maverick!
Bring it on!
No job says “stick it” more than Senate Naval Liaison!

Maverick!
His mind is free
At the Episcopal churches he attended reg’larly

Maverick!
Loves to fight!
So he chose to represent the party of the rich and white

Maverick!
Got his own philosophy
Marching in lock step with talking points of the GOP

Maverick!
From hell done sent
All of his employers? The US government

Maverick!
Give him cheers!
Been stuck in the same job for 26 years
(And that job ain't exactly intergalactic secret agent rock star...)

Maverick!
Bucks the norm
By trying to find the middle ground for ethics and reform

Maverick!
Shakin’ up what he can
Tax cuts for the wealthy! Stick it to the man!

Maverick!
John McCain
Nothing says rebellion like more of the same!



According to Merriam-Webster:
Maverick: an unbranded range animal (especially a stray calf); belongs to the first person who puts a brand on it
And he's carrying that Republican brand well...
