A Russia Friendly Resume                [Part 3 of my Russia Trilogy]

 

 

An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

Yo, I graduated from State U.

 

Outstanding student and magna cum laude.

 

With a winning smile and eyes this blue,

 

Size 12 shoes and a fully jacked body.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

I headed back to my old home town.

 

Got a job keeping grocery shelves stocked up.

 

But my folks were worried, if I hung around,

 

I'd soon get a high school sweetheart knocked up.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

The Mueller Report has them agitated.

 

Their every thought had become politicized.

 

Dad said the final copy exonerated,

 

Our Chief of State, so this is what Pop advised:

 

 

VERSE 4

 

Go buy yourself a one-way ticket, son.

 

And do it now, while you still have the chance.

 

Make your destination Washington,

 

There to work for the Executive Branch.

 

 

VERSE 5

 

But before you make that D.C. trip,

 

Where you'd audition to join that awesome cast.

 

Be very careful to insure that you strip,

 

All references to Russia from your past.

 

 

VERSE 6

 

Doctor your transcript to replace,

 

Russian language with a business course.

 

And if they learn that you met face to face,

 

With an oligarch, the truth is...you were forced.

 

 

CHORUS

 

A Russia friendly resume,

 

Isn't what Trump is seeking today.

 

You're a perfect candidate,

 

With hootspa and know-how built in.

 

But don't say that you can't wait,

 

To get back to the Moscow Hilton.

 

Yeah, ditch that Russia friendly resume.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

Three thousand posts remain unfilled.

 

Obama's guys, who have not been replaced.

 

Some of which were alter boys and Eagle Scouts.

 

 

Since this White House isn't thrilled,

 

By folks who are rigid and straight laced.

 

I'd avoid words like principles and devout.

 

 

VERSE 7

 

Since the word 'acting' implies pretension,

 

If you have 'acting' in your title you should know.

 

Until promoted, expect to ask permission,

 

Of the lawyers on the staff, just to 'go'.

 

 

CHORUS

 

A Russia friendly resume,

 

Isn't what Trump is seeking today.

 

You're a perfect candidate,

 

With hootspa and know-how built in.

 

But don't say that you can't wait,

 

To get back to the Moscow Hilton.

 

Yeah, ditch that Russia friendly resume.

 

 

The End.
