The State of the Union, A Dress?

I usually steer clear of politics, but here is a nonpartisan scorch, inspired by Dr. Seuss and reading the news.

Senators look in the mirror,

And what do you think they see?

To them nothing could be clearer

“The President should be me!

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s

A painful oxymoron

They are occasionally aware,

That there might just be a war on. With that in mind, he puffs his chest,

When you can make folks angry

About a dude clad in a dress?

A wealthy writes a check

If you don’t tax the rich!

And if you cut still more, Oh heck—

You’ll cash in you son of a—
