Despite enchantment
by charming denizens
of the news establishment,
sensitive citizens
could see, hear and smell
the job they were doing
with their hype and hard sell
of cough up scandal gossip
on Presidential wooing,
if character assassination
was quite enough
to snuff an Administration.

Oh scold and scoff
at a TV nation
of sick voyeurs
who never get enough
of smug fascination
with those slippery lawyers'
partisan manipulations
and legal machinations
when bullied witnesses skulk,
yuke, eyulk -
I have to turn it off !
