Trial And Error

You should have known, Bill, it would all go wrong

‘Cause you snapped when Monica snapped her thong

We assumed that you lied

When they brought you to trial

But it turned out to be Starr

Whom we grew to revile

Most of us felt that he hadn’t oughter

Force Marsha to testify against her daughter

Livingston stepped down when it was hinted

That he was going to be Larry Flynted

Henry Hyde, claimed in his confession

That the affair in his forties was a youthful transgression

House Managers waxed eloquent as they got into gear

They quoted the Bible and William Shakespeare

What do I tell my children (was Bono’s zinger)

They were probably at home watching Jerry Springer

Dr. Laura moralized and lived to regret

Those pictures of her on the Internet

Larry King interviewed Paula Jones

Katherine Wiley and the rest their clones

Who was the benefactor do you suppose

Who paid for Paula Jones’ new nose?

There were some in the media who did resort

To repeating quotes from The Drudge Report

When Tripp said “I’m you.” I looked ’round to see

I couldn’t resist “Are you talkin’ to me?”

Some called us Americans morally broke

Most considered their assessment a hypocritical joke

We people objected to this personal intrusion

And so the trial limped to a foregone conclusion!
