About the Author

Calvin Trillin
Calvin Trillin, the author of Random House's Deciding the Next Decider: The 2008 Presidential Election in Rhyme,...

Helmut Kohl had a singular goal,
And to stay in control was it.
So his party took cash
With no rigmarole
And the law didn't matter a bit.
Now Helmut says he took the money,
But that's all that he wants to admit.
So we still don't know the quid pro quo,
But we know Helmut wasn't legit.
