Look
Grandpa's in the paper

Schuyler's seat was up for grabs so I took it

I've always considered you a friend

I don't see why that has to end

You changed parties to run against my father in law

I changed parties to seize the opportunity I saw
I swear your pride will be the death of us all
Beware, it goeth before the fall
