Ten Little Democrats: A Political Poem Sort Of

Ten Little Democrats going out to dine

One choked to death trying to eat a copy of the Constitution

And then there were nine.

Nine Little Democrats sat up very late November 8

One cried himself to death

And then there were eight.

Eight Little Democrats travelling in Devon

One was told his citizenship had been revoked and he’d been deported

And then there were seven.

Seven Little Democrats chopping up some sticks

But then one was prosecuted for wasting strategic resources necessary for Homeland Security

And then there were six.

Six Little Democrats playing with a hive

A Libertarian Bee stung one

And then there were five.

Five Little Democrats going in for law

Alan Dershowitz sued one

And then there were four.

Four Little Democrats going out to sea

A red-herring-baiting House Un-american Committee Chairman subpoened one

And then there were three.

Three Little Democrats walking in the zoo

A Russian bear hugged one

And then there were two.

Two Little Democrats sitting in the sun

The  climate change frizzled one

And then there was one.

One Little Democrat Left all alone

So he joined the Libertarian Party

And then there were none!
