wisconsin politico poem #2

“What’s disgusting?” “Union busting!”
“What’s disgusting?” “Union busting!”
your IT reporter is abroad today folks
on the front line, the curb before the
wisconsin school for the deaf in delavan
our sign-bristling crowd is mustering
pretty loud chants even though half the
gang is hearing impaired they have drums
though and are signing with vigor it was
here my deafening grampa came to learn
hand spelling and lip reading no ASL yet
I wonder if governor walker and the GOP
will strip this school of its seasoned staff,
cut their salaries? two hundred thousand
will converge on madison tomorrow I’ll
be one of them I look forward to the
cavalcade of ancient tractors promised
to circle the square farmers are pissed too
