According To Joe
Wolf not so wily
Wolfowitz's resume does not bode him well.
At Defense he guided the Iraqi hell.
Then given top rank
At the prodigious World Bank,
He then proceeded to screw that up as well.
Because while on his anti corruption crusade
He told us for whom the rules are made.
"They were not for me
And so I was free
To use public funds to get my girl friend paid."
Well it didn't work for Wolfowitz.
While targeting the corrupt and all misfits.
He found himself busted,
And no longer trusted.
So now he's wearing that shoe that fits.
