The revolution eats its young.

It’s been this constant meme,

Since Robespierre, who wound up hung

By someone more extreme.


Inherit, all you right-wing shmucks

The whirlwind, a thing which

Turns you into lame-ass ducks.

As happened to Newt Gingrich.


Score one for the right-wing ranters

The beasts who must be fed

With the blood of Eric Cantors

Or John Boehner’s head.


Do I see you cringe or squirm 

Or writhe and quake with fear?

To think you’ll have to join a law firm

For five million bucks a year?
