Follow the Leader

“Hurry up!” said Mitch McConnell.

“Our job is not to be a funnel,

But now a floodgate opened wide

To let the billionaires inside!”

 

For eight long years he’d been a tabler

Of Obama’s bills—now he’s an enabler

Of anything—wow! what a switch!

Which helps the new reign of the rich.

 

He did his job to cheat the nation

Of years of progressive legislation.

Of no and block he was the master

With Obamacare his one disaster

 

But then came back with the bright idea

When faced to replace the dead Scalia

To drop his standards below the basement

And stall for a year the man’s replacement.

 

So now it’s time for jubilation:

Obama’s gone and legislation

At last can flow as he prepares

New laws in aid of millionaires

 

As well as cuts in regulation

Once passed to shield the population

From health care woes and destitution

But they don’t fit the institution

 

Which he sees as a mechanism

To help promote his cronyism

With K Street friends—there is no schism

Between a republic and capitalism.

 

And here at last, free from the bothers

Of following the founding fathers,

Democracy he’ll redefine

As one more step to the bottom—line.

 

“Hurry up!” said Mitch McConnell.

“Our job is not to be a funnel

But now a floodgate opened wide

To let the billionaires inside!”
