What is Prez Trump asking Santa for Christmas? Prob'ly a fort at the end of an isthmus, Or some middle-aged faces mounted on wood To hang on the wall for the public's own good, Or for Robert Mueller to accept invitation To the Saudi Consulate for Christmas libation. . What are Repubs asking Santa to bring 'em? Uncertain verdicts so that they can fling'em Back at Democrats to say their man's pure, If not all that decent or even mature, But against an impeach' enough to push back, And struggle to '20 when Don will them whack. . Dem's on the other hand ask Santa for toys, Committees and gavels for good girls and boys, Docs from the White House and subpoenas galore, Since lacking the Senate they can't do much more Than toss sticks and stones, sing what song they can, 'Cause if you can't boogie, at least have a band. . The Pentagon sends Santa its yearly wish list, Requesting that Talibs in Af-Pak persist In a war that so much has meant to so many, Especially to those who harvest ripe penny, And keeping our army from sitting on can, Until in Iran the ol' fit hits the shan. . Julian A. has but two wishes for Santa, That Time Magazine might him just granta The status of "Guardian" since he pub's the facts, Hard doc after doc with no comments or cracks. Next, a MacGyver who might his skin save, And allow him to fly from his Ecuador cave.
