Third Strike (America’s Game)

I always thought the office overblown –
Executive just means to make it work,
and I when young or even fully grown
sized up each President as ego jerk.
Admittedly I was in fact impressed
with Congress as it processed Watergate,
but that was then. Reality confessed
its members venal, ignorant, or late.

I still retained some hope about the Court
supposed to settle issues honestly.
But now I’m left without a hope or doubt.
I didn’t need last week’s deplored report
to see the strikes have added up to three.
I’m mourning but admitting: we are out.
