No Mulligans In Elections

Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler wanted to escape the Swamp and its impeachment fray
And with a friendly game of golf talk impeachment strategy and put their golf skills on display
Pelosi went first and approached the Red first tee and carefully let loose with a picture perfect swing
A flight down the fairway then hooking to the left into a water hazard to bring
No one wants a stroke so a Mulligan was generously affirmed
A drive not long but on the fairway and dry terra firm
Schiff was next and after getting his shifting hips to stay still
A mighty slice that flew not straight but over the out of bonds hill
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander among friends
 So quickly  another Mulligan so a penalty he would not contend
Slower swing, head down hips on contact  to pivot
In fairway not too far but bouncing over a deep divot
Nadler was next and praying for a decent drive
Not to be as he topped the ball bouncing up and into a dive
Barely off the tee so a Mulligan was without hesitation freely granted to him
Slowing his swing down it bounced near the water but to hit his ball he would not have to swim
And so the three played with the rules of golf bent
With discussion of 2016 Trump win until they were politically spent
Mulligans passed out like Halloween candy
And gimme putts to in the end make the score seem dandy
The caddies looked on with amusement as the laws of golf they seemed to shred
All the while talking about how the electoral process had skewed by the Russians’ collusion with the Reds
When the reporters for their opinions the caddies were sought
Comparing their golf to politics here was their thought
In golf when there is no tournament a few Mulligans are the order of the day
To hide the lack of skills too many weekend golfers are prone to display
In politics when a race is over, it is over and a Mulligan is not there
And to use impeachment as a kind of Mulligan does not seem wise or  fair
A lesson the impeachment troika would do well to learn
Ere their political career off the tee crashes and burns
