Koch Bros Dems Halloween Bogeymen

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bogeyman

With apologies to James Whitcomb Riley:

INSCRIBED WITH ALL FAITH AND AFFECTION

 

To all the little Democrats: — The happy ones; and sad ones;

The sober and the silent ones; the boisterous and glad ones;

The good ones — Yes, the good ones, too; and all the lovely bad ones.

 

The Koch Brothers’s come to GOP house to stay,

An’ buy up WI power plants, an’ give some crumbs away,

An’ shoo the chickens off the porch, an’ dust the hearth, an’ sweep,

An’ make WI Capitol fire, an’ bake the numbers, an’ pay da Gov’s board-an’-keep;

An’ all us other childern, when the bribin’-things is done,

We set around the assembly fire an’ has the mostest fun

A-list’nin’ to the witch-tales ‘at Bloomie tells about,

An’ the Koch Bros ‘at gits you

Ef you

Don’t

Watch

Out!

 

Wunst they wuz a little union guy wouldn’t chant his prayers,–

An’ when he went to bed at night, away up-stairs,

His boss heerd him holler, an’ his steward heerd him bawl,

An’ when they turn’t the kontract down, he wuzn’t there at all!

An’ they seeked him in the cider-room, an’ Madison, an’ da press,

An’ seeked him up on Wall Street, an’ ever’-wheres, I guess;

But all they ever found wuz some Bush signs on a roundabout:–

An’ the Koch Bros ‘ll git you

Ef you

Don’t

Watch

Out!

 

An’ one time a little soc’list ‘ud allus laugh an’ grin,

An’ make fun of ever’ one, an’ all her blood-an’-kin;

An’ wunst, when they was “lunch time,” an’ McD folks wuz there,

Ché shirt gal mocked ‘em an’ shocked ‘em, an’ said she didn’t care!

An’ thist as she kicked her heels, an’ turn’t to run an’ hide,

They wuz two great big Purple Things a-standin’ by her side,

An’ they snatched her through the ceilin’ ‘fore she knowed what she’s about!

An’ the Koch Bros ‘ll git you

Ef you

Don’t

Watch

Out!

 

An’ little TP, Bloomie an da like says, when ya don’ pay the union due,

An’ the cell phone sputters, an’ the cow bells ring, an bagpipes goes woo-oo!

An’ you hear WI Senate Dems quit the state, an’ Obama’s tunnin’ gray,

An’ the Dane County pros’cuter  in inclined ta sue, while da Dems are far away,–

You better mind yer union, an’ yer teachurs fond an’ dear,

An’ churish them ‘at loves you, an’ dry the orphant’s tear,

An’ he’p the pore an’ needy ones ‘at clusters all about,

Er the Koch Bros ‘ll git you

Ef you

Don’t

Watch

Out!
