On flip-flopping

When candidates tout a two-sided dish

Our retort might be that it smells like fish …

To a then double-dished political ploy

We’d perforce have to say something’s fishy — ahoy!

It’s amply served up by both party beasts

As we find ourselves guests at their polling feasts —

But when one such delivers forked-tongued crock

We then name it “flip-flopping” like fish on a dock —

If they flip-flop too much, one likely would think

They might flip themselves off — right over the brink.

‘twould be best if they’d all just tell the whole truth

‘Cause the truth is one-sided, not two — forsooth!
