It was an act of sabotage
Against the democratic norm,
For Mitch McConnell’s entourage
With wayward purpose to conform,
And sacred duty abdicate—
In dereliction criminal
His rogue cabal betrayed the state,
Setting in motion a great fall.
What was the reason they en masse
Refused the call of duty’s course?
Not public servants—acting as
Petite despots, these senators!
Coarse-minded men, without refinement,
They followed Mitch McConnell’s lead,
Oblivious that their alignment
Must only plant disaster’s seed.
Fealty paying to their sovereign,
Dark Money—at the public cost—
They did not care a whit to govern
And thereby a republic lost.
