Legal Brief

by Dan Campion

With Avenatti on the case
The Trump defenders hurried
To catch him in a paper chase
And keep the bodies buried.
He had more paper, though, than they,
More air time, quicker wits.
Can’t say, yet, who’ll get put away.
Here’s where the matter sits:
In medias, where Rudi raves
And Cohen slams cab doors
While Michael Avenatti paves
The way to two-to-fours.
