“Had America not absorbed the sheer skeeviness of that decade, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”—Op-Ed, The New York Times, September 2017
It seems that skeeviness is now
A word that everyone should know;
The New York Times would not allow
A word to interrupt the flow
Its readers are accustomed to
When tapping into current news.
Did skeevy pass a peer review?
Was it intended to amuse?
If skeeviness means what I think,
It started in the reign of Ronald
When everything began to stink,
And culminated in The Donald.
