You stonewalled just long enough
to get your sorry self re-elected
by refusing questions you deemed tough
at last comes the unexpected

Your threats against "mere" underlings
won't keep them from testifying
as whistleblowers start to sing
about eight months of your own lying

And Clinton screamed "What does it matter!?"
she really meant "DO NOT bother Me!!"
now she'll see her presidential hopes shatter
for misjudging voter apathy

So Barak sit in our white house
and pray to God we don't impeach
a man with the morals of a louse
this won't fade away with some trite speech.

I am not politically minded even here in the UK where we have too many Clowns a product of our private schools.
So your views of your country and its leaders only makes me smile and think that we are not alone in this debacle of ruling.
This needs a damn good tidy you seemed to race away and tripped us up a few times..
Take care out there, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Appears somebody has been trolling the undiscovered works category. I was on verge of REALLY tidying this one up (the good ol' unpublish button lol). Now I'll have to actually Work on it some more. Appreciate the visit..........stan
