THROW COLUMBUS UNDER THE BUS--By JC Langelle (c) 2016
Can't understand what's all the fuss
And why they want to throw Columbus under the bus.
He borrowed some jewels from the queen
And set sail for sights unseen.
He headed West looking for the East.
His crew got sick to say the least.
Chris was the captain of the Santa Maria
With him went the Nina and the Pinta
It's a wonder there wasn't a mutiny
Before the discovered the Land O' the Free.
But nowadays he's no longer the man
They badmouth him whenever they can.
He gets the rap for everything
From the halls of Congress to the West Wing.
So if you see a crowd in the street
Keep on walking unless you want to meet
A crowd that likes to holler and cuss
As they throw Columbus under the bus...
