Dr. Oscar, not of the local Oscars
Or that gold statue organization in Hollywood,
But his idea for psychiatry
Was so appropriate for today.
Dr. Oscar Schmalzbach had the temerity to suggest
That those holding high positions,
World leaders, the heads of government
Should be tested for of all things, their mental health.
After all, they could endanger world peace
If they were prone to having bad days
And got a little shaky
The good doctor with better ideas
Knew what he was talking
I wonder what he would have said
About those running for office today.
