LITERARY NOOK

Falling rats caught lesson taught

“Go and catch a falling star ”—John Donne, 1633

Gone before two years over 60% of my staff and cabinet
my daughter and son-in-law are both still in place here
I know all the best non political minds you can ever vet
now another new Supreme Court Justice that I can steer.

I heard Flynn, Manafort, and Cohen are all singing
Mueller has them and more all into deep flipping binds
but with promises of a full pardon which I am bringing
he’ll have a hard time prying into their twisted minds.

The country is getting familiar with their faces
what these three will say we have yet to hear
a grand jury will take them through their paces
from now until well past the election this year.

I’ll just keep tweeting my ignorant online policy
Fake News if you like, I write a lot, believe me.

STORM INTO A MAELSTROM

“The thunder is not yet rain”—an African proverb meaning
the thunder is forecasting the coming of the storm. When you
hear the thunder in the distance it gives you time to prepare.

All people in the United States are in the midst of a maelstrom
a tragic and tempestuous whirlpool stirred up by our leader
poorly thought out tariff and immigration policies on and on
frightening speeches and interviews preceded by the tweeter
tweets are the lightening followed by loud campaign thunder
misspelled words grammar mistakes many misunderstandings
people become immune to the BS storm we are living under
insults to long time allies policy babble golf course landings
cabinet departures some fired new hired few originals left
some indicted, some arrested, some already locked in jail
many including family abusive of their power and tax theft
more on their way out as their demanding king they fail
two popular 2020 campaign chants will be without a doubt
you pick, ‘LOCK HIM UP’ and/or ‘VOTE HIM OUT’.
