Patrician Charlies

Patrician Charlies marching on
Cry “wolf!” to keep their powder dry
Straw men festooned with silver spoons
And rolled in notes to buy and buy

And who would not be wary when
We know their hazing lines by rote
A lot of hot air whines ‘Mary’
Mother of god, how the guilty float

But a habit is a habit owned
By supplements or patter
Let the masses be passively stoned
The substance doesn’t matter
