Impeachment Two

by Robert Zimmerman

Impeachment Two is coming soon,
so said the congressman.
I said, “Why are you doing that?”
He said, “Because we can.”
 
I asked, “What is the new complaint?”
He said, “Don’t have one yet.”
I asked, “Do you still think that’s wise?”
He smiled and said, “You bet.”
 
They don’t believe in governing,
resistance they have pressed.
Why don’t they try to legislate?
Nan told us she’s the best.
 
Our country staggers in the wake.
Three years of wasted time.
Our enemies will celebrate
this brand-new paradigm.
 
Will all elected presidents
be subject to this thirst?
Or might some clearer heads prevail,
to put the country first.

"I think I'm a great legislator." Nancy Pelosi (10/15/2017)
Perhaps a demonstration of those skills is in order.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
