The Lyrics

During a recent U.S. Senate hearing, Hillary Clinton rhetorically asked, "At this point, what difference does it make (whether the attack at Benghazi was planned or just a mob)? Four men are dead!" The interrogators were so startled that they failed to follow-up, so I do that now, using TOS. I conclude with a projection of how her personal life will change when she's no longer visiting 112 countries as Secretary of State.
Now what diff'rence does it make,
Whether al-Qaeda's powers
Brought the guns to our bowers,
There abused our domain?

That yesterday was moot, clear.
Today I'm starting new. Hear?
Miranda rights I'm due, peer,
Since my head's newly fine. [1]

What a diff'rence four months make!
There's delayed testimony;
I've a cover-up story;
Since that foment and blitz,
I've drilled my pitch.

It's heaven when you
Find a chance for late venue.
What a diff'rence delay made,
And no sentence is due. [2]

What a diff'rence my stay [3] makes;
There's a plane waiting for me;
Prizes hover before me.
Princely moments of bliss,
My Bill will miss!

'Twas heaven when he
Found romance with some lady.
Now the diff'rence is nay, mate,
For I'm sentencing you.
[1] Refers to her flu, fall and concussion in December.
[2] ... or "true" depending on what the meaning of "sentence" is.
[3] ... as in "stay of execution."

A footnote for "drilled" could be "... or 'shrilled' depending on what the meaning of 'pitch' is."
I'd change "some lady" to "so many" to make a two-syllable rhyme with "when he" like TOS's "when you/menu" couplet. I avoided changing "romance" to "no pants" though.

No doubt about it -- for parodists, at least, Hillary is the gift that keeps on giving. Here's hoping lots of her "retirement" is spent in front of juries -- grand and others.
