Hit the road, Jack!


Nunc Dimittis: Now Let Thou Depart
The first words in Latin is in the Canticle of Simeon, found in the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 2, New Testament.

Please depart as our country quakes
we can take the insults and ignorance
everyone is tired of your golfing breaks
glimmers of rational thought by chance.
Please leave DACA immigrants alone
we can handle laughter by world leaders
try to stay off constant use of tweet phone
focus and become a new legislation reader.
Please exit stage left with the alt right
take your cabinet with you the ignorant bunch
if there are any left even those flying out of sight
take your seventeen lawyers too after a power lunch.
Please hit the road down Defeated Dumpty Trail
call your next book How To Win and Tragically Fail.

Top of the Class from Bigly Nursery
A sonnet for the first election anniversary
of a big baby graduate from Bigly Nursery
founder of business scam Trump University
millions for diplomas criminal and cursory
can’t get policies or names of countries right
embarrassing the United States around the world
saying ‘I’m smart’ proves he’s not very bright
disgraceful words when SOB vulgarities hurled
he doesn’t trust us, cussed us, we sense collusion
on the trash heap of history he lives in delusion
so we begin the second year with Bigly at the helm
who knows what horrors are next in his unreal realm
he should check into a Bigly Senior Nursing Home
unable to care for our nation, but that’s another poem.

Trump and Tweet Three Years To Go
Trump and tweet filled cyber space throughout 2017
all tricks and no legislative treats is all we have seen
when voters go to voting booths in the next election
will the Tyrant of Tweets face outright rejection
will there be any votes for Trump University’s dean.
Trump and Tweet campaign rallies till the year 2020
can you take three more years of President Not Funny
how much longer can our country’s voters take it
how much longer can Bigly Bling Baby fake it
will the Koch brothers and Mercers still put up money.
Trump and Pence in office for three more years
who knows where the many investigations steer
who knows how many more in DC will be indicted
will justice prevail and will everyone be delighted
will we weep for our nation with RNC elephant tears.
Golf & Gaffes Gaff the US Gags Again
I drained the swamp made some mistakes
some got arrested and turned against me
I loaded the cabinet with rich sneaky snakes
and struggled to get under par from the tee.
I tweeted thick headed nonsense every day
skipped boring policy bulletins and watched TV
then off to one of my own golf courses to play
then back to the tube to watch more about me.
My first year in office is soon coming up
have I lost more than half of my cabinet already
gotta work on getting that ball into the cup
work on my swing and keep my course steady.
I need more adulation and more of me on TV
most important though is time on the course for me.
