An Egregious Earworm

The dismal repute of their leader proves to be a source of great amusement to your people. A deeply unflattering and instantly unforgettable rhyme, which casts aspersions on both your mental prowess and your body odor, is now chanted in streets throughout the land. The children sing it as they play, the workers murmur it as they toil, and even the elderly wheeze as they laughingly recount it to one another. How should you respond to this rhythmic ignominy?
