Day 1267, Not Above the Law
The president’s not above every law,
Though he may yet run out the clock.
With New York’s DA, it wasn’t a draw
On subpoenas Trump tried to block.
Trump can’t block them all, our highest court said.
He may try to narrow their scope.
So, does this mean Trump has reason to dread?
(The DA is ordering rope.)
Back to lower courts to argue some more
About what the grand jury sees,
The bank and tax fraud in Trump’s rotten core
Will show up in records they seize.
And what Congress wants, they cannot see yet.
They also should narrow their scope.
Trump can’t just say, “No,” so Congress will get
Tax records but not all they hope.
We’ll see Trump’s taxes but not right away
And not before November third.
That’s Trump’s old strategy: stall and delay;
And get final rulings deferred.
Now Donald cannot say, “This too, shall pass.”
With Covid, elections, and court-
Reality’s biting Trump on his ass:
Three problems he cannot abort.
