(With apologies, under the table, to Mother Goose)

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.
