One’s a lawyer; one’s a politician
arguing about some damn petition.
Their ambition, built on contradiction,
bristles with the friction of their diction.
One’s a shyster and one, in addition,
is a grafter in a high position.
Both presume to be above suspicion.
With legal aim, words are ammunition.
Mad dogs have a better disposition.
What has got them into this position?
The answer will require repetition:
One’s a lawyer; one’s a politician.
