Exit Weiner: A Confession

Exit Weiner: A Confession


Though no one was at times much keener
Than me to joke about A. Weiner,
Though his transgressions, being serial,
Provided us with rich material,
I have to say that we were lucky
That he got skunked. Those posts were yucky.
And toward the end the jokes grew grim.
I’m glad to see the back of him.
