Mum’s the Word

by Bruce Bennett

Said Trump to Cohen: “Make that go.
Give ’em the cash, but let ’em know
there’ll be no blabbing! Make it clear
that we can make them disappear.”

Said Trump to Woodward: “Sure I knew
Covid’s more deadly than the flu.
But let that come as a surprise.
They won’t freak out, and stocks will rise.”

Said Trump to Putin…? None can say.
They both have made that go away
since both know how to make things go.

It’s likely we will never know.
