Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing

by Marshall Begel

“DeSantis Appears to Misattribute [‘courage to continue’] Quote to Churchill
as He Drops Out of Primary”
The New York Times

“Winston Churchill’s wartime false teeth are up for sale”

Failing to secure his votes,
Ron resorts to phony quotes—

Sheds façade of grit and sinew,
Bungles meaning of ‘continue,’

Falls to slight intimidation,
Bends his knee in subjugation—

Shows what truly lies beneath:
Courage false as Churchill’s teeth.
