With Cream Cheese, Perhaps

"On weekends, Biden has kept to his routine of attending public mass, in Washington at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown and at his home parish in Delaware—occasions that aides say allow him to blend back into normal life, at least for an hour. After one outing, he stopped by a bagel shop; officials expect he and the first lady will be more frequent patrons of Washington's restaurants once the pandemic is over."

This President conducts himself with class:

I'd love to meet him outside Wagshal's Deli

For post-pandemic bagels after Mass.

 

His predecessor was a toxic ass

Who left the air around D.C. quite smelly:

This President conducts himself with class.

 

He peers at Holy Trinity's stained glass.

The choir's top-notch. O gaudeant angēli:

Now, for a toasted bagel after Mass!

 

You won't find this chap tweeting jibes (so crass!).

Shove off, you right-wing blowhards on the telly:

This President conducts himself with class.

 

He works hard. Days drag on. Hours slowly pass.

He's getting hungry. Rumbles in the belly:

He needs to gobble bagels—yes, en masse!

 

Where I live, snow still whitens winter grass.

It makes me dance like a chilled-out Gene Kelly

To know the President can act with class

And likes a bagel after Sunday Mass.
