A Modern Libertarian

Hugh Kramer has very kindly provided another version of the Major General's Song for the humor index of Critiques Of Libertarianism.

Try both versions: both perform some wonderful tongue-twisting verbal acrobatics, and both twit libertarians in delightful ways.

Hugh Kramer's version.

Kim Plofker's version.

I've done some of this sort of thing myself: see my
2000 Libertarian Party Campaign Song.

I've also modified some poems: It used to be a tradition at the Cambridge Entomology Society to nominate officers in verse, so I wrote two nomination poems. Does anybody know the proper term for the sort of forced rhyming that I used?
