The New Nixons

A shared sense of paranoia
A deep hatred for exposure
A sinking feeling of failure
A desperate need for closure

Proponents of ruthless aggression
Supporters of widespread spying
Enablers of horrific abusers
Champions of the innocent dying

Determined to silence the righteous
Terrified of what they know
Committed to destroying their good names
Worried what the media will show

Fooling themselves into thinking
These growing storms will pass
Hoping their hidden crimes
Won’t anger the middle class

The original fell on his petard
When reality was closing in
The others are fighting like hell
But running out of spin
