Sing a song of sixpence,
A rocket full of PI
Four and Twenty Politicians
Baked in a pie

When the pie was opened,
The air began to stink,
Now wasn't that a dainty dish
To chuck up down the sink?

Happy Electioneering Season, my American Chumps ... err, Chums!

Praise the Lord, and pass the ammo. The last one loaded's a sitting duck!
