When senators are sin-ators,
…Vice presidents are vice,
When governors are minotaurs,
…And trusted leaders lice,
Consider well spoiled milk you drink –
…It’s rotten at the top.
You take a sip; you smell the stink,
…And then your drinking stop.
But at the bottom of the well,
…Where you disdained to go
The stink and spoil there also dwell,
…E’en in the common Joe.
