PRESS IDENT



Unprecedented
What a president did
On side pretended
Surprise intended
Pomp residents bid
Oppress indentured
Depression consented
Press indented
Suppress, ident hid

Prides dented
Be amended
Press demented
Attacks uncontended
Uprise, be ascended
To never again see prestige ended

Tribal with a cause, stay on course
Have no pause, shows no paws
Only claws, to rejects all clause
While sweat pours through pores
From shredding the false by force
That floors the flaws
As poor voice pour
Raw victorious roar
To great applause
