Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer,
Once an Organized Crime resister,
Succumbed to the hook
Of a call girl, helped cook
The crime ring's books
With small wired payments to a dummy corp.,
Yet he never got his day in court!

The Feds booked the appointment-booker
Who'd booked his trysts with a comely looker,
Yet not the Gov. nor well-paid hooker!
Feds had just enough legal juice
In interstate commerce statutes
To prosecute the escort service
But not "prosecutor" nor his prostitute!
Neither this John nor his Jilly!

Oh, when he faces Kompromat
It gives a Gov. the willies!
Now he is a "prostitutor,"
It gives a Gov. the willies.

So the Gov. has to deal with Silda Wall.
She surely could have killed em all,
The Gov., the whores, the perverts.
It's enough to make a wife nervous.

Poor willowy Silda gets to see the "cute"
Face and figure of the hot-eyed prostitute
On the cover of every paper and mag,
While she dutifully stands by her man.
One has to assume she could kill him.
Being paparrazed is such a drag.

Still, the former prosecutor,
Now a notorious prostitutor,
Helped fell another crime ring
With his, um, peccable timing.
Pay cable might've met his needs nicely.

He teaches, now, at City College,
He shares the great depth of his knowledge.
"He didn't screw me!"
Say his new students, duly.
"He'd make a fine senator, truly."

(*Note: Kompromat is compromising materials, e.g.,
the bank records of his wire transfers to a crime ring.)
