Let Them Eat Bread!

Alas! The Twinkie has expired.
The Hostess brand is dead.
The unions killed the golden cake,
And cried, “Let them eat bread!”

Though cream was what the masses craved,
The unions overfed.
They chose an unemployment check,
And cried, “Let them eat bread!”

So when Thanksgiving dinner’s served
I’ll gaze across the spread,
And cry a tear for Twinkies lost –
And binge on pie instead.

  1. Alas! you never told us Wonder Bread was also killed.
    It's dead white spongy texture no longer can be swilled.

    No more the red, blue, yellow circles that adorned its wrapper
    Will show on shelves in grocery stores looking rather dapper.

    But, we must face a dismal fact: The late, lamented Twinkie
    Was a cheesy, sleazy product. Mother told me it was stinky.

    The greedy selfish unions who have played fast and loose
    With workers' long term interests have killed their Golden Goose!

    All the best,
