Meg Whitman’s been badly bruised in this race
As increasingly effective attacks
Revealed her particularly cozy relationship
With the unpopular Goldman Sachs.
She’s been battered with so much bad news
That what occurred to me
Was how Mount Vesuvius famously buried
An Italian city in 79 A.D.
Yeah, I know, that’s a rather old reference
For me to bring up today
But Whitman’s upbeat spokesman happens
To be Sarah Pompei.
