|Ko-ko, the Lord High Executioner in The Mikado, had a little song: "I've Got a Little List." I've given it a politically correct updating.|
Unfortunately, Ko-ko was moved laterally to the position of Lord High Scold, with the same salary and perks. Ko-ko said, "Having a government job is nice." He had to change his song to accomodate his governmental bosses. Being a governmental functionary sometimes requires sacrifices.
As some day it may happen that a victim must be found,
I've got a little list — I've got a little list
Of society offenders who might well be underground,
And who never would be missed — who never would be missed!
There's the pestilential nuisances who sell fileed chickens —
All people who eat paté and who don't quickly sicken —
All children who read The Hunger Games, and stun you really flat —
Wishing that they were illiterate, and other things like that —
And all Kardashians who are spoiling cable tee vee —
They'd none of 'em be missed — they'd none of 'em be missed!
|He's got 'em on the list — he's got 'em on the list;|
And they'll none of 'em be missed — they'll none of 'em be missed.
