Statesman

Today, although
the news is very bad,
you hold your little thumbs just so

and square up to the camera. No
escape from looking sad
today. Although

your doubts may grow,
the PR man is glad
you hold your little thumbs just so -

he says it helps maintain the flow.
Sincerity’s a fad
today, although

you mustn’t show
the training that you’ve had.
You hold your little thumbs just so,

squirm in your own imbroglio,
but we can see who’s mad
today, although
you hold your little thumbs just so.
