Do I hear impeachment

This one was written some 2.5 years ago. And, perhaps naïvely, I thought that he had left the stage. Now I’m no longer sure…..

A higgeldy piggeldy:
Two sets of four lines.
6 syllables per line.
Second line of the second set is one word of 6 syllables.
Last line of each set (to your own liking) 4 or 6 syllables.
Last lines of the two sets must rhyme.
This one = 3 groups of 2 sets.
Voilà!

Do I hear impeachment?

Trotsky was removed from
a picture of Stalin
almost a century
foul politics

Leaked talks with journalists
autoritarian
or blatently sexist
ideas 'bout chicks

I
Do I hear impeachment?
suspect misdemeanors
low crimes by high people
great journalists

II
Caused by a new trend in
sustainability
renewed trust that the truth
is sorely missed

The first lady looks great
seems like that's important
Fuels Max's jealousy
glued to Will's side

Don's greatest enemy
audiovisuals
will not convince his wife
nothing to hide

Do I hear impeachment?
suspect misdemeanors
low crimes by high people
great journalists

Caused by a new trend in
sustainability
renewed trust that the truth
is sorely missed

I am still trying to find my voice writing English lyrics.
I still struggle.
But I do give it a try.
Enjoy!
Kind regards, Gus

Author's Note
Over the years, I've written hunderds and hundreds of songs based on the English verse form 'Higgeldy Piggeldy’. In Dutch: Olleke Bolleke or dubbele dactylus.
Only after Drs. P.'s death a couple of years ago , I started writing complete lyrics loosely based on that form.

Two sets of four lines.
6 syllables per line.
Second line of the second set is one word of 6 syllables.
Last line of each set (to your own liking) 4 or 6 syllables.
Last lines of each set must rhyme.
This one = 3 sets of those.
Voilà!
