The Speaker Who Was Not To Be

Jim wanted to be House Speaker

But the GOP didn’t want him as keeper.

After three dramatic voting bouts

The old wrestler got wrestled out.

The co-founder of the Freedom Caucus

Received a taste of his own ruckus.

There’s no room for claims of fraud

Which some did and do applaud.

What goes around comes around

‘Specially to those who in ambition drown.

Maybe now Jim will have more affection

For procedures called elections.
