A libretto in search of a composer

(Continued from Page 20)

To drag his people 'fore the jury.


We wasted lots of Vernon's time,

May have busted Bettie Currie.

His aides aren't the innocent bystanders

As they claim when they moan and whine.

They won't say what they know full well:

The president crossed the line.

He's crossed the line.

He's crossed the line.

I'd be a nitwit not to bend a bit

When the president crosses the line.
