Bubblegum and suckers, fudge and cookies for all! This among other things was their rallying cry and no one can cry louder than seven and eight year olds deprived of supper and sleep.

A fresh wind to blow on stale and intractable issues was needed and every other sort had been tried: but not children. Not, that is, until now.
They skimpered and scampered all about the Hill. They swarmed it in mass, roiling over the capital like a frothy flood. They swung from chandeliers and leapt from desks. The capital police looked on; they were not amused. No parents in sight and no threat of discipline to concern them, the children found their offices and set out to govern as they had been elected to do.
