The Connivers' Voice
by DCDave

You'll know when the miscreants are really defensive:
They'll say that your statements are "deeply offensive,"
Or when a rebuttal's particularly hard
They'll say you're repeating a "familiar canard."

Whenever nefarious power you reveal
This is the moonshine with which you must deal.
You'll face empty verbiage, and I'll tell you why:
Theirs are the penmen that money can buy.

David Martin
