Hoaxy Poaxy

Editors’ Note: VoxFairfaxis grateful to its contributors but especially to those whose vision and insight concisely pierce the clouds that darken the politisphere. Two weeks ago, our readers were entertained with Ms. Levine’s version of Simon and Garfunkel’s Sounds of Silence (https://wp.me/p9wDCF-1tD) as it captured the emotional dynamics of the death of George Floyd and the absence of empathy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Here is Ms. Levine’s latest interpretation of an “oldie but goody” tune familiar to all. Imagine you are in the schoolyard with friends, chanting the Hokey Pokey as the Hoaxy Poaxy. . . .

Deny the Russia Probe

Deny the warming globe

And twist it all around

You do the Hoaxy Poaxy

And you blame the Democrats

That’s what it’s all about!

 

It’s just the Kung Fu Flu

Don’t wear a mask-achoo!

Just wave the flag around

You do the Hoaxy Poaxy

And you blame the Democrats

That’s what it’s all about!

 

The Russians kill our folks

You say it’s just a hoax

And put your trust in Vlad!

You do the Hoaxy Poaxy

And you lie and lie and lie!

And THAT’S what it’s all about!

 

The historically curious may wish to know that the dance song originated in the United Kingdom in the early 1800s and immigrated to the United States in the mid-to-late 1940s.
