’twas three nights before Christmas

‘Twas three nights before Christmas, when all through the land

many creatures were stirring, going home to their clan.

Their bags were all packed, they were ready to ride

when all of a sudden they sat down and cried.

Oh no, there’s no wall, the donald bemoaned

so Mitch and his guys just voted and groaned.

Now Nancy, now Chuckie, now Paulie, now Pence

On Putin, on Turkey, I’m building my fence.

To the top of Fox news, to the top of my wall,

now dash away generals,  now dash away all!

And away they all flew like birds in the wind,

while Mueller and his team were soon closing in.

The White House in chaos, no leader in sight,

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Stay tuned.
