(A timely tribute to Malvina Reynolds who wrote the original version of “Little Boxes,” and Pete Seeger who popularized it.)

(Official US Dept. of Justice photo of some of the TOP SECRET contests of some of the Bankers Boxes full of classified documents found at Mar-A-Lago).

Little boxes, on his backside,

Bankers boxes filled with SECRETS TOP,

Little boxes, bankers boxes,

With the contents he won’t name.

There’s a secret, there’s a NUKE code,

There’s the name of our super SPY,

Little boxes, bankers boxes,

With their contents all aflame.

And the secrets, in the boxes

Brightly marked “HIGHLY CLASSIFIED,”

In the boxes, bankers boxes,

With their contents all aflame.

There’s a passport, there’s a TRUMP note,

There’s a SECRET with his SHARPIE scrawl,

In the boxes, bankers boxes

With the contents all aflame.

One for Putin, one for Kim Jung,

And one for Saudi ‘Rabia,

In MY boxes, BONKERS boxes,

With the contents all aflame.

They’re my ticket, Golden Ticket,

To riches & ASS-I-AL-LUM,

In MY boxes, all MY boxes,

And we’re going down in flames!
