pinions of buddy don: Topic Change

Topic Change

Ever since that woman came a'calling
To ask the question that was haunting her –
The president's approval rate's been falling –
As Pres he's worse than as entrepreneur!

Were this high tragedy and not low farce
His fear of that one question would provide
An insight into how we ought to parse
The tragic flaw that cannot be denied.

Pride goes before a fall, the Bible states –
And in this as in all it must be so –
Hubristic failure to admit mistakes
Should lead him to his tragic quid pro quo.

Yet in an age ruled by entertainment
Topic change equals damage containment!
