I Run The Gulags Of Our Times *
Sung to the tune "I've Got a Pocketful Of Dreams"
(sung by Bing Crosby in "Sing You Sinners" - 1938)

It sure beats solitaire.
I can torture anywhere
For I run the gulags of our times.

How can accusations hurt
A Michael Jackson type pervert
When I run the gulags of our times?

I used to duck their questions
About ghost detainees,
Though it's tough to hide who it was that lied
From our own MDs.

But lucky, lucky me,
I can torture secretly
For I run the gulags of our times.
