On a Senator

Ambrose Bierce penned this epigram on George Clement Perkins (1839-1923), who served as senator from California between 1893 and 1915, but it seems applicable to other members of that august body, even some current ones, of both parties. If the shoe fits...
Running for Senator with clumsy pace,
He stooped so low to win the foremost place
That Fortune, tempted by a mark so droll,
Sprang in and kicked him to the winning pole.
