“The Wisconsin Senate’s Ride”


Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the daylight ride of Democrats here,
On the seventeenth of Feb, in Two thousand eleven;
Hardly a tweeter now alive
Who doesn’t remembers that famous day and year.

The protesters said to their friends inside, “If the GOP calls for a vote
count the heads in that chamber to-night,
Keep a bus near the exit ramp
By the side of the steps where we setup our Amps,–
If down by One is what we see;
Then soon to a different state we’ll be,
Ready to ride to foil the plan
Through every village and farm,
For the Union folk to be up and to arm.”

When the count came and the number was known
Onto the bus the Democrats roamed,
The door it did shut and the clutch engaged,
and the waiting Greyhound its progress now made
The State police and Sgt at arms;
Not thinking the Dems would abandon so far
the job the did beg of the voters last qtr,
Through a franchise so dearly bought that they ought to
By their own acts surrender the quota.
