“Illinois governor: Federal government sent wrong type of masks”
The Hill

Our staunch Lone Ranger just received
Ten crates of Batman masks;
No masks for her, Catwoman’s grieved.
Where’s mine? the Phantom asks.

Hamburglar’s wrapped in Mummy gauze,
The Hulk wears gray Carrara,
While Wonder Woman’s sporting claws
And Wolfman her tiara.

Clark Kent’s decked out as Supergirl.
Check out Spock’s ears on Kirk!
It’s costume business Tilt-A-Whirl:
Your Government at work.
