Well, Pardon Me!

by Mae Scanlan

The news of the day was a lollapalooza:
POTUS is pardoning Dinesh D’Souza,
Then Martha Stewart, Blagojevich too,
Which sends an encouraging signal clear through
To Cohen and Flynn, and some others who face
Considerable time in a monitored space.
Just when you think that things couldn’t get worse,
They quickly do. It’s the Trumpian Curse.
