Republicans say Kerry might have got

Some wounds, but not the kind that hurt a lot.

Their own man cannot ever be accused

Of claiming wounds when he was only bruised:

He might have gotten banged up in that summer he

Was skipping all those meetings in Montgomery,

But slipping on some beer while chasing booty,

Is not considered “in the line of duty.”
