The TSA Hymn

With apologies to the United States Marines
From the shores of California,
To the mountains of PA,
We will fight our budget battles
With the threat of flight delay.
We will furlough half our workers.
We will send them home to stay.
You will surely learn a lesson
If you mess with TSA.
From the field at Opa-Locka
To Muskegon County’s sky,
We will limit travel service
And the numbers who can fly.
From the plains of Oklahoma,
To the shores of Tampa Bay,
You will learn the gift of patience
If you mess with TSA.
Here’s to us and to our union,
For in it we proudly serve.
It provides us with a pension,
And the jobs that we deserve.
If the public and the Congress
Cut our budget they will pay!
They will surely learn a lesson
If they mess with TSA.
