Calvin Trillin: The Bain of Mitt Romney's Existence

|
(0)

He's running on all of his triumphs at Bain,

But some say the Democrats refrain

From saying Bain's gain was at times inhumane

(Because of its strategy aiming to drain

A company's treasure, no matter what pain

Is caused to the workers whom it won't retain).

Yes, Bain did some good, its defenders explain:

Some pension funds shared in its capital gain.

So vulture's a label for Mitt they disdain--

Though buzzard's OK, and is just as germane.
