Supreme Brett

If he were not a sexual miscreant
He would still be a misogynist.

If he were not a misogynist
He would still be a boozer.

If he were not a boozer
He would still be a perjurer.

If he were not a perjurer
He would still be a bully.

If he were not a bully
He would still be a smug elitist.

If he were not a smug elitist
He would still be a rabid ideologue.

If he were not a rabid ideologue
He would still be a conniving party hack.

And if he were none of these
He would not be Brett.
