In Washington did Donald Trump
A stately pleasure-zone decree:
Where the Potomac river ran
Through parkland measureless to man,
Oh what a spending spree.
So twice five blocks of swampy ground
With cones and fencing were girdled round;
And there was merchandise with special deals
Here blossomed many a profit-bearing scheme;
And there were Hatch Act breaches by the staff,
Reprobates every one, this White House team.
