Strangest Dream Updated

Tune: Last Night I had the Strangest Dream

Last night I had the strangest dream I ever dreamed before.I dreamed that our new president was not the same anymore.
And when he spoke and what he did, I couldn’t really ignore.
He morphed into my former pres., it made me feel heartsore.

He said, my friends, right now we must keep fighting the Iraq War.
We must defeat Afghanistan and Pakistan’s predator.
We must keep those whom we suspect of terrorism in jail.
We haven’t put them on trial so – we’ll never lose their trail.

He said he’s now considering the use-of-preventive-detention.
Impris’ning those jailed without charge fills me with apprehension.
And though he said that he’d restore our constitutional laws.
We now find that he’s copying the rules of his predecessors.

The last time I-had-another-strange dream we finally ended that war.
It sang a myth of happiness and peace forevermore.
I ask of our young President the promise to restore
Those laws that we inherited and-that-we-enjoyed before.
