Goodnight Tycoon
with apologies to Margaret Wise Brown
In a great green room there's a wacko tycoon,
with a picture of the White House over the loon,
a passel of aides who are pecking to please
on phones and PCs balanced on knees,
a bottle of bourbon with a shot,
a blond toupee, hair spray, a brush—
and there's the tycoon, mouthing his mush.

Goodnight to this louse with his hoped-for House.
Goodnight to his plot of fencing our lot
and ousting every migrant we've got.
Goodnight to election tactics that scare.
Goodnight xenophobes everywhere.
