Like to Buy the Koch a World

Rumor has it

if you stop by the Koch mansion
in Wichita Kansas tonight

Charles and David themselves

(through many protective layers

of a highly advanced
and proprietary "working class repellent"

made from a composite
of natural and synthetic materials
from their massive subsidiaries

including plastics and petroleum
and asphalt
and chemicals

and energy and fibers
and minerals

and fertilizers
which is the "natural" part)

will tell you
some of the best stories
about the ghosts
of American democracy.

But you'll have to stop by
the Sedgwick County
Democratic Party Headquarters

if you want any candy.
