Moments Like This
After months of lies, corruption,
Cheeto in Chief finally over-reaches,
paints himself into a corner.
One after the other,
co-conspirators are offered a choice:
confess, ask for leniency,
help take down their treasonous boss
by means of a plea deal.
At the eleventh hour
they revert to feral,
throw each other under the bus,
attempt to inflict lethal wounds,
go for the jugular.
A mesmerized electorate
watches hourly betrayals,
the ongoing treacherous shit show.
