Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
A view of the indiscretions of a certain president

American Plight


What truth in high position
Should we see?
Yes! I am in charge, and as I'm here
You must agree
What 'ere you need to hear
I shall recite
If it be wrong, then truth
I will put to flight.

Democracy doth give me license
To the facts
And only in impeachment
Will retract
My skeleton's in place just as
You cast your vote
And lies and indiscretions caught
In slippery throat.

For now my high position
Your common place naivety
I shall bleed,
I utter every word to
Save my face
And colour my deceit with
Calm and grace.

Should I be viewed in some
Unforgiving breach
Then on some far flung shore
Will my attention reach,
and your preoccupation
Bend away
This welcome squall turns red,my
Tactless act turns grey.

We all remember the accusations leveled at the president.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
