The Ho-humness of Donald’s Misdeeds

by David Hedges

When Bill and Monica were hot
The coverage was round the clock.
The Trump and Russia tryst is caught
Between a hard place and a rock.

Reporters work for billionaires,
Which puts a yoke around their necks.
There’s little interest in affairs
That don’t dish up some sizzling sex.

So what if Donald rigged the vote
And danced as Russia pulled his strings?
He’s wearing Reagan’s Teflon coat
And Putin’s Kevlar underthings.
