Princeton decides U.G Gov’t is not a democracy:
no new news there, Ivy League buster,
not for those never invited to the table
to sip slowly of the purple Kool Ade.

But isn’t oligarchy what the Russians have?
Where very few rich people control the many,
and every official is bought and paid for,
and voting is a joke? A sham?

But that’s not what we are. Oh no!
Russia’s theory is economic elite domination,
and ours is biased pluralism. Right, buster.
All the same in the wash, Princeton. Thanks.
