“It’s absolutely true that all presidents express — privately and then, eventually, publicly — some level of longing for the life they left behind or the life they will return to. But that usually happens after, say, seven or eight years in the White House. Not after 99 days.
Sure his life was much better before
but he reckoned how much he could score;
such a small sacrifice
for a generous slice
of America’s pie at his door.
Susan E. Eckenrode, 4/29/17
