To think that voters get excited
Because their candidate’s no friends
Who’ve not come close to being indicted.
But that’s before THE MAN ascends
To office where inflexibility
Needs service by malleability.
If conquering requires a stoop,
Then s/he’ll need friends who’ll play the dupe.
The Clinton/Bush administrations-
Both governors who left the South
By talking out both sides their mouth-
Avoided their incarcerations
Because a friend fell on his sword.
More than St. Pete did for his Lord.
