An Infernal Racket

It took only John Boehner's casual remark

that Ted Cruz
was "Lucifer in the flesh"

for Cruz
to double down
with some serious "shade"

disguised as constructive criticism

retorting that Boehner
had "allowed his inner Trump
to come out".

Meanwhile in Hell
Satan decided to shed a tear

along with him.
