Sing a song of influence, a docket full of lies,
Four and twenty species fall from the skies.
When the void was noticed, the rich began to sing:
“Laws are meant to resonate, Ka-ching! Ka-ching!, Ka-ching!”
Congress was in chambers, dividing up the booty,
The Pres was in his office, shirking his sworn duty,
The lawyers were in concert with anyone who’d pay,
Along came a lobbyist and kicked off their day!
