Le Sage Will Stay And No Longer Speak To The Press

In a déjà vu moment with a frustrated, losing Dick Nixon lashing out at the press
“You won’t have Dick Nixon to kick around to your readers impress”
Now over 50 years later it’s Governor Paul Le Sage
After a profanity laden phone voicemail rage
Against a Blue member of the Senate in Maine
Made a vow to always from speaking to the press in the future refrain
Any communications with the press be written words on a page
Never again to orally with the press engage
And despite growing demands that he resign for his profanity laden rant
He will not but apologized for any abuse to Gittine and his family and wished the choice of words he could recant
Just another example that when it comes to politics, civility is coming to a dead end
Too much government money sloshing around to change this disturbing trend
The Reds and Blues seem to have lost the use of their ears
Filtering out that which they disagree with and don’t want to hear
Blame, shame, sermonize, and demonize
No wonder we are deadlocked and cannot seem to compromise
