Lines composed on learning that Rudy Giuliani is the politician Charlie Baker would most like to be.
(With apologies to Nat King Cole and Mona Lisa)
Guiliani, Guiliani, Baker’s named you
Politician who (to him) is most worthwhile
Is it only your cajones he is drawn to
Or the way you always go the extra mile
To belittle those beneath you, Guiliani
Or to richly compensate a rogue upstart?
Countless voters have been grossed out by your missteps,
How you lied there, left a bride there,
Are you warm, are you real, Giuliani
Or is Baker, just like you, without a heart?
