SNOWMAN FATWAH by Naomi Elana Zener


 *sung to the tune of ‘Do You Wanna Build a Snowman’*

[Fatwah police:] You there? [knocks] Did you go and build a snowman?
Come out and tell the truth today!
Now, we must even the score
Come out the door
From us you can’t hide away
You used to be my ally
And now you’re not
I wish you would tell me why!
Why did you build a snowman?
You shouldn’t have built a snowman…
[Snowman Builder:] Get lost with your fatwah.
[Fatwah police:] Time to die!
[Fatwah police:]
Why did you have to build a snowman?
Why not just throw some snowballs?
Time for mercy is way past due
No one will save you
Or hear your 911 calls!
(Hang up the phone.)
And now you’ll be lonely
No vestal virgins for you
Just watching the hours tick by…
(tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock)
[Fatwah police:]
Olaf lover, I know you’re in there
Support for you has grown thin
They say, “Kill Him Now!” and I’m trying to
I’m waiting here for you
Just let me in
We only have each other
It’s just you and me
When do you wanna die?
Why did you build a snowman? [sniff]
