What the brothers Koch bought, ridicule in verse

The trouble with writing a Goliard poem is, the Church isn't as big a source of authority as it once was. The real power follows money. So here's the equivalent of a Goliard poem, updated for the Church of Mammon, a satire directed at two men who in my opinion are morally disfigured by inherited wealth:

What the brothers Koch bought

The brothers Koch
had a merry thought
they'd like your vote
for the congressmen they've bought.

But if you're the kind
to vote your own mind
your right to cast a vote
will be effectively revoked
so the government they've sought
may efficiently be bought.
