( From your wretched writer:

Our story’s perverse
It keeps getting worse
So why not, time to time
Try to soften with rhyme
To describe our political curse)

THE SLEAZE QUEEZE


Robert Mueller continues his reeling
Donald Trump never ceases his squealing
Or whatever it is you do when you tweet
Walls relentlessly closing
While “fake news” keeps exposing
Stuff that might get him impeached.

And he’s angrily moanin’
For Manafort and Mike Cohen
Shouting stuff that’s not nice
It’s all a “hoax” and a “witch hunt”
Or worse a “political stunt”
Meanwhile Bob Mueller just tightens the vise.

And let’s not forget Stormy
All the other charges he’s smarmy
They, too, add to the squeeze
Lawsuits that charge defamation
Have also made their donation
To the image of Trump as a sleaze.

More that’s obscene in this bizarre bazaar
He's already dealing with Omarosa’s memoir
The way she describes him, he’s totally vile
He’s a “bigot,” “misogynist,” a rake and a fake
To prove that it’s valid, she even has tape.
So add her new book to the Trump garbage pile.

Still, it’s the focus on Russia that remains the big threat
Did Putin steal the election, the campaign aid and abet?
Prosecutors want to question Trump, to his lawyers that’s crap
The POTUS attorneys, in particular Rudy
Feels it’s their lawyerly duty
To warn that it’s clearly a perjury trap.

The pros haggle about tparameters
While debate rages with pundit rank amateurs
Those watching all this might sigh
Even with knowledge, that’s basic or cursory
We know how best to avoid perjury
It’s obvious: You simply don’t lie.

But to Trump that’s a hardship; he learned in his youth
That only fools think you must tell the truth
So that would be something he just doesn’t try
He’s just one of many in political species
Most of what they say is politely male cow feces.
You can see why his lawyers are skittish and gun-shy.

He calls Omarosa a “low life,” but he’s used that before
His insults are lifeless, they’re becoming a bore
He’s losing his edge, he’s seeming to tire
Even when he’s at rallies demagoguing his rabble
He seems incoherent, sometimes he’ll babble
It’s hard work to be such a liar.
