The Lyrics

He’s a fall guy, that is true,
but he held a “pravda” view.
Then the truth he did not share
about contacts over there.

The warnings were not followed
because concerns were hollow.
A serious crime,
but the guy’ll do no time.

Red, white, and blue
are the colors that he hews to:
the tricolor where Moscow sits
Doing Putin’s bids.

Water for the Kremlin he’d tote,
although it tried to impede votes.
Then news hits…
Putin’s envoy quits.

Discussing sanctions with Kremlin stooges
as a civilian, that a sin yuge is;
US loses.

Cozied up to dacha fellers,
then wasn’t a pravda-teller,
so he splits
Putin’s envoy quits.

He got a little too Kislyakkie,
then it’s revealed: He’s a Kremlin lackey.
Very tacky!

All the lies were simply whopping.
Most knew, but they were not stopping
it with “nyet”s.
Poo the fan then hits.

Great, creative rhyming, particularly "stooges/yuge is"!

He should just have taken millions of dollars from the Saudis like I did!
