If Yogi Were Alive
If America is lucky
it might still happen.
That lawsuit about the university
accused of bilking students
might go to trial and the accused
might be convicted.
And something proof positive
might emerge about that private server
and the accused might be convicted.
If America is lucky the gendarmes
might then drag one of them
out of the White House and
the other one out of the penthouse
and lock them both up.
And if Yogi Berra were still alive
he might say America is lucky.
It’s Richard Nixon, déjà vu,
all over again.
