unveiled: tom delay, jailed

the people's man, rep tom delay
has come afoul of a mess
that threatens all the careful plans
with which tom built his cozy nest

the troubles tom dismisses
have resisted all his tactics
clinging like the spot of Death
that spot that plagued Lady MacBeth

the niceties that Tom eschewed
when wielding his Hammer
will not now be pooh-poohed
and may land him in the slammer

recall how Tom avoided grace
when dealing with democrats
choosing instead to swing the mace
of republican arrogance

the moral heights from which he preached
were built of course on fraud and bribes
but tom's whale has at last been beached
by bigotry and diatribes
