Congressional Sex Scandals Still Not Addressed

Congress is returning back to the Swamp to face tax cuts, shutdown and a  massive duress
Out into the open are sexual abuse scandals that for years in the past have been suppressed
17 million dollars of taxpayer funds have over the years been paid to settle claims
Confidential hidden from the public so we never know the guilty Congressional names
Disguised in Conyers’ case as severance pay
The truth of sexual harassment in the halls of Congress never to see light of day
But now the dam of silence holding back the waters of sexual abuse have been breached
Both to Blues and Reds will soon the wrath of voters’ outrage reach
Congress should never be just another Hollywood like casting couch
Congress must clean up its image in the workplace that is far too louche
Too long members have ignored other members’ predatory behavior with their staff
Leaving them unknown and thus immune to the voters’ rightful wrath
A week has gone by and still no commencement of House and Senate Ethics Committee probes
How much longer do we have to endure too many members ruled by their reptilian cranial lobes?
