The C.I.A. guy spilled the beans,
Quite possibly, in bed.
He should have stuck to sharing secrets
With his wife instead.

Since national security
Might really be at stake,
He had to quit when they found out,
For who can trust a snake?

Advice to all philanderers:
You shouldn’t take a chance
Of blabbing news that’s classified
When you’ve removed your pants!

    To funny and embarrassing for the guy. I guess we can look forward to a less a less than flattering book from the mistress.
