Evasive Action
by DCDave

Now with the political system on trial,
They've created two forms of the standard denial
Of the manifestations of leadership rot.
One's called "so there" and the other, "so what?"

When the crimes are of very great seriousness,
Be sure that they won't be exposed by the press,
These sycophants just wave their hands in the air:
"We can't believe it. So you don't. So there."

Then to show that they're not just protecting their own,
They find minor mischief and toss us that bone.
Implied is we'll never find saints where they're not:
"They're pretty much like us. They're human. So what?"
