Jimmy Kimmel, you dissimul-
-late so poorly, that it’s crim’nal –
Cloaking activism in
A disguise supremely thin.

“A sounding brass, a tinkling cymbal”
Singing from the lib’ral hymnal –
Weeping your tears crocodilian –
Can that truly be fulfillin’?

Are your viewers’ lives so grim, they’ll
Applaud those tears, Mr. Kimmel?
Is that what they tune in for?
Will they ask for an encore?

Going out upon a limb, I’ll
Suggest to you, Mr. Kimmel:
No one needs another spokesman!
Why not simply tell some jokes, man?!
