Implausible Deniability

There is no wiggle
Room though the
Unscrupulous try to
Scheme and stymie.

The brazen and
Craven denial of
Truth is what is
Now on trial today.

Seems we’ve given
Carte blanche to a
Grifter and the sales
Pitchman of all-time.

For that which was
Once seen as a bald-
Face lie gains traction
In our nation’s disarray.

Implausible deniability;
The modus operandi
Of the day by those
Of criminal minds; thus

Leading America astray.
