For haircuts now and brand new suits;
Or mistresses for their gainsaying
You purchased their forbidden fruits;
Or any of the “immoralities,”
Though legal, pass as “criminalities,”
Like playing straight when really gay,
Not stating God will have a say;
Or arguing from “We the People”
And finding that the “folks” get fussed
And want to start “In God We Trust,”
Then ringing it from every steeple?
In other words, what is the price
A politician pays for vice?
