A Basketball Fan Evaluates the Britney Griner Prisoner Swap

by Mark Raffman

“Why Biden’s decision to make the Brittney Griner deal poses big political risks”
The Hill

To get Ms. Griner freed from jail,
Joe Biden made a deal.
And though the critics whine and wail,
It’s looking like a steal.

The guy we sent back in return,
A bum named Viktor Bout,
As Putin will be quick to learn,
Can’t dribble, pass, or shoot.
