Woodman, woodman save that tree!
Obama continues unabated his new regulations spree
Where is the Sierra Club to the forests demise protest?
Where are the Greens to seek to the cutting of trees arrest?
Where are the defenders and protectors of the Spotted Owl losing their nest?
When will we be allowed time to these regs digest?
Trees destroyed not for homes or furniture but for paper to shackle us in paper chains
Woodman, woodman save that tree should be our agitated refrain
500,000 pages in the Federal Register and more coming this way
Even Google probably could not keep up with this flood to our dismay.
Bureaucrat after bureaucrat not elected, set for life and from the people’s ideas immune
No wonder we mere mortals can only gasp and then to quickly swoon
Woodman, woodman spare that tree!
More regulations and wave goodbye to the land of the free.
