Lines Written on the Occasion of Bernie Sanders’ Announcement of His Intention to Vote for Hillary Clinton

My name is Bernie Sanders, you might have heard of me:
I once led a ‘Revolution’ against the mighty powers that be.
I gathered up my legions, of the indebted and the young,
And when I blew my Magic Flute I knew that they would run
into the pen Debbie made for them inĀ the dungeonĀ of the DNC:
thousands and thousands of new voters for the cause of Hillary.
