LITERARY NOOK

A Trump Time Terminal Trilogy

Share

45 OTB to 46 OTB to 47 ODDS
OTB, or Off Track Betting, is a no-no for the presidency.
 
One Term Bigly 45 to One Term Biden 46 to 47… 
my tweets are poor speech in my 4th year I still preach
now my one vermin term rots in hellish heaven 
corrupt, untrusted, busted, votes just not in reach
 
My tweets in CAPS come from twaddling thumbs
any with logic and common sense I lead astray
like my repeated phrases their banality numbs
after touting myself I have nothing to say …
 
One of the greatest minds of all times comes to this 
my base understands me with red hat certitude
as a top ranked President I give my brain a kiss
resting on inchoate laurels, lazy and rude …
 
One term now for me and one term for Joe Biden
dodging lawsuits I’m on some golf course hiding.
 
Golden Shower Power Gone Sour
 
Daily bedight the blighted knight in fearful flight
despite money and bling no victory bells ring
a ‘sad’ old pachyderm becomes a tainted knave
going golfing and speechless in his political night
those he maligned stand behind and write books and sing
of his insults to those in the land of the brave
no Midas touch his tainted touch showed no restraint
lacking insight he viewed the media with fright
about immigrants he would defame, rant and rave
meanwhile children in border cages cry and faint
for him criticism and truth were kryptonite
he said, “rounding the curve” on Covid fearing a wave
and finally one last comic tragedy note
he wanted officials to stop counting the vote.
 
Trump’s Latent Loser Lament
Elegy for an egregious example of egotism

Few condolences sent, a list of virtues
hard to find, searching, looking, above, below
behind, consolation, isolation beyond
the voting event on his nearest golf course
over in Scotland or some Ukrainian bourse
maybe a Russian Super Pac source
who will be sending out the notice
losing votes in the electoral college
or tweets in capital letters from POTUS
in the papers, blogs, on the tube
from city slicker, redneck, some rube
from red hat base, blond haired orange face
there will be little sorrow past tomorrow
over loss of the reality show 45 POTUS boss.
