The Road Ahead

by Bruce Bennett

Do “all roads lead to Putin?” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
told The Washington Post she asked President Trump that question
before she left a White House meeting.

Do “all roads lead to Putin”?
Why, yes, that now seems clear,
as Nancy said to Donald,
and that has led to here,

Though what that next may lead to
is anybody’s guess.
The road ahead is murky,
but must we take it? Yes.
