From a cordoned-off beach with wife and guard

Dear secret diary:

I am a noisy rattler,

I throw my weight around

I can taper entrance ramps to major bridge crossings

I caress burnt-orange faces

Reporters are rebuffed —

I loved kicking their stuffing out

But I would like forgiveness on few transgressions

And a wide bedroom suite in the White House

Ex-Governor of New Jersey

(and garden-variety bullies)
