Even press secretaries need love

A suit wandered the coastline, sensing disaster
What would the collar and tie say tomorrow
He was the mouthpiece for everything on the brink
It was his civic duty

Too much to bear
He just wanted a good night’s sleep
Or even a little sympathy
To douse the dry criticism of the wee hours

But an upside down flag was all he could hope for
A little absurdity to make the pain go away
Then the flag seemed to wilt
And the alarm clock buzzed

A new day
More chewing gum
No on really got it
He was all alone in this newly minted world

Just a suit filled with candy
Oh, look, your fault fell to the floor
