Baker Tony's (Mystic) Pizza

This is the winner of the "Time for a New Rhyme" contest for Britain's Nick Jr. television channel. Can you unravel its mystical political message? See if your interpretation is right here.

Baker Tony's Pizza

Baker Tony baked a pizza
Very round and thin.
He said he added olives
But he never put them in.
The stuff that he had grated
And sprinkled on to please
Was only yellow sawdust
Although he called it cheese.
The rich tomato topping
Was nothing more than dye.
So Baker Tony's pizza
Made all the children cry.

We should have a contest like this over here. In the current US political climate, imagine the modern-day nursery rhymes we could generate!
