get paychecks every week?
Who goes to tons of laundromats
to dry-clean all her fleece?
Who has a love of politics
and danger on her plate?
Don't look now, for here she comes,
the Secretary of State.
For centuries past and centuries yore,
the Secretaries have been the ones
to bread the butter and butter the guns
constituting the executive core.
*cue the Rap music*
When Seward was the Sec. of State,
he went to Russia with a spate
of demands which the pres. would pay
and that's how 'laska came our way.
When Hamilton was Sec. of Tres.
he wanted central banking 'cause
as a New York finance general,
he favored matters federal.
When Ken Royall was Sec. of War,
he almost started World War Four.
That knocked Forrestal off the fence,
and made him first Sec. of Defense!
But by far the best Sec. of 'em all
is the only office that can call
itself the department o' all the States
and askin' why jus' temps the fates.
The Secretary of State's in the position
to lead America, 'f only through attrition.
When the Pres, Vice, Speak, and Pro-tem
are unfit or don't qualify, and only then
does the Sec. of State command the nation.
*Rap ends, fade out*
I hope that cleared up any questions you might have about the federal government.
