Ode to Virginia Kelley

With Hillary trying to come across perfectly candid,
The White House convened to decide how her candor be branded.
Twas thought she should offer some words before they were demanded
By those who think she's got to answer for that which her man did.

They decided a nifty excuse
For Bill's being lurid and loose
Was childhood scenes of abuse.
Though how this abuse could induce
Philandering worthy of Zeus
Was reasoning slightly abstruse,
Our Hillary found it of use

That Bill's grandmama
In absence of Pa
Was fighting with Ma

And tightening poor little William Jefferson's Freudian noose.

Thus Hillary finally found in her quest to be senator
Some use for her husband's immediate female progenitor.
