The Gov’nor and the Billionaire*

“The time has come,” Gov. Walker said,
“To talk of many things,
Of jobs and thugs and surpluses,
And if I should be king.
And why divide and conquer is
A meaningless nothing.”

“But wait a bit” the Wingnuts cried,
“Before we have our chat;
We need to watch Fox News again,
To learn the world is flat!”
“No hurry!” said the Governor.
They thanked him much for that.

The Right to Work” Ms. Hendricks said,
“Is what we chiefly need:
No rules and low wages besides
Are very good indeed —
Now if you’re ready, Wingnuts dear,
We can begin to feed.”

“But not on us!” the Wingnuts cried,
“We are Republicans!
After such support, that would be
A dismal change of plans!”
“The night is fine.” Gov. Walker said,
“Tis time to admire my fans.”

“It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!”
The billionaire said nothing but
“More profits will suffice:
No labor laws, no worker rules!
Don’t make me tell you twice!”

“It seems a shame,” Gov. Walker said,
“To play them such a trick,
We told them many pretty lies,
And laid it on so thick.”
The billionaire said nothing but
“Give me those tax cuts, quick!”

“I weep for you,” Gov. Walker said;
“I deeply sympathize.”
With sobs and tears he sorted out
His gifts of largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

“O Wingnuts,” said the Billionaire,
“You’ve had a pleasant run!
Shall we roll back more rights?”
But answer came there none –
And this was scarcely odd because
They’d eaten every one.
