Paul Ryan’s the one Mitt picked for VP
He’s hoping his base will shout out with glee
And right-wingers surely have cause to rejoice
They’ve finally got someone who speaks with their voice.
Independents, however, may not be so sure
His budget ideas make them insecure.
The tax cuts he plans will make richer the rich
He’ll cut lots of programs, but he won’t say which.
There’s no one less loved that the House GOP
Ryan’s one of their leaders, nearly all would agree.
All Ryan’s proposals Mitt now must defend
We’ll see how it all turns out in the end,
But Mitt’s opened himself to fearsome attack
Ryan’s now a big target on Mitt Romney’s back.
