Capitol Hill Mob

How many saints can dance upon a needle?
How many gurus tango on its head?
How many spokesmen, staffers and advisers?
To kill a decent, wise decision dead?
How many explanations of a statement?
How many obfuscations of a point?
How many briefings and elaborations?
How many ‘expert’ noses out of joint?
How many kitchen-cabinet gyrations?
How many leaks and stabbings in the back?
How many inter-departmental mayhems?
Till someone gives the lot of them the sack?

Can someone tell me how we got deflected
From government by those that we Elected?


( from ‘The Making of a President ‘)
