The Politician's Confession

or,

Before I Begin to Speak I Would Like to Say Something

About the allegations that have come to light this day,
I will only say that I have nothing to say.
And of the gathering storm and nothing to calm it,
My only comment is that I have no comment.
And concerning the imminent circling of sharks,
Remarkably, I have no remarks.
And finally, as it's apparent that I will not escape impeach-less,
I will begin and end my speech by stating that I'm speechless.
