What Would It Take?

Wearily, drearily
Faithful constituents
Ask their reps “where are you
Drawing the line?”

Clearly unbothered by
Reps sip their coffee and say
“This is fine”.

Someone (if you know who, I would be overjoyed to cite) reminded me today that impeachment would involve a whole lot of Republicans crossing the line. And that is something they just don’t do in the numbers needed (19, I think? Not gonna happen). And with each new atrocity that doesn’t cross the line, the line moves. It’s the Milgram experiment, with each unthinkable, once thought, now defended and normalized.

Man, I would love to be writing stupid verses about stupid arguments about stupid gods.
