The Lyrics

There have been few, if any, presidential pardons that were not somewhat controversial. But not many have been as controversial as President Trump’s pardon of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (who was convicted of criminal contempt of court for defying a court order to stop detaining people based solely on suspicion of their immigration status).
Sheriff Joe, you’re free to go, me oh my oh;
President Trump preserved the rump of Arpaio!
Sheriff Joe was full of woe when convicted,
Claimed innocence but evidence – contradicted!

Chorus
Jumbled tweeter, who’s indiscreeter* than Joe Arpaio,
Shakes us up, makes stuff up on the fly – oh!
Critics conclude Trump’s unglued, me oh my oh,
Son of slumlord, Trump’s getting gored for Arpaio!

Contempt of court is no sport for good sheriffs,
In jail cell, he’d scream and yell and despair if
Not for mercy controversy, me oh my oh!
Was Trump kind to save behind of Arpaio?

Chorus

Twitter posts and frequent boasts lack a buffer;
Impeachment, jail internment he might suffer!
Some time in jail or real high bail, could Trump pay-oh?
Will his fate be big cellmate who is gay-oh?

Chorus

If it’s concluded Trump colluded, me oh my oh,
He’ll get more time for his crime than Arpaio.
Ivanka’s dad’s judgment was bad, he’s the chump, so…
Will it make sense if Pres’dent Pence pardons Trump? NO!
* I am exercising my poetic license to drive the word "indiscreeter" which, inexplicably, is not in any dictionary.

Also nicely done. Shame that Arpaio is such old news now, replaced by more and more BS.

Thank you, Agrimorfee. You are correct that this was not my most timely submission.

I'm aggressively ignorant about politics, but I know great rhyming when I see it. Great stuff John; always good to see you around here.
