Despondent White House Criminals Should Look Up

 

— “Sean Spicer Lawyers Up as Russia Probe Heats Up” (Daily Beast headline)

 

When you should have been shutting, you were miked and messed up

So now you’re too keyed and too fired and you need to ketchup

The answer’s not putting, not fessing—lawyer up

Get yourself cleaned and well spruced or, better, souped up

Now you feel popped, topped and stopped, but bottoms up!

 

— William Eaton

 

Que ce petit poème aide aussi les pauvres étrangers qui doivent lutter sans relâche avec les « phrasal verbs » (les verbes à particules) des Américains.
