Another scandal

For heavens sake
Another scandal
It seems every week
There’s more to handle

Investors’ money
Was given away
An Evangelist preacher
Said he was once gay

The Chicago governor
Attempted to sell
A senate seat
Though it didn’t go well

An airline pilot
Sure knew how to fly
Into the river
But no one would die

One man was a hero
I must convey
The other scoundrels
Should just go away
