On wise men, mob talk, and money monsters


Where Wise Men Should Seldom Tread
“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.”
—Alexander Pope
A fool and his thoughtless tweets are soon parted
sending them off half cocked with poor grammar
yes it was his brain silent but deadly that farted
yes for angry rants his dwindling base does clamor
news reports tell of phone calls yet not a single sound
rationalizing policies gone bad bring sulfuric winds
tweet storms warning of retribution say don’t fart around
and that’s the way a 45 POTUS day begins and ends
some say ‘fools rush in where wise men seldom tread’
the biggest fool is old school drool inside 45’s head
the great William Shakespeare paraphrased Socrates
in his play, As You Like It, revising words like these
“ the fool doth think he is wise, but wise knows himself
 to be a fool.” worse when tweeting becomes a disease.
The Richgraft Monster
“Wilt thou tell a monstrous lie? Thou monstrous slanderer of heaven and earth.”
Come and watch the Richgraft
monster rage ridiculous rant in
a White House cage he calls a
‘dump’ at the all new D.C. zoo.
The Richgraft monster was the
result of a brief union between
an obstinate oligarchic Ostrich
and a greedy Giraffe; the world
cried and laughed as it watched
its caniptions and face fall in half
Many animals in the zoo though
aware of the monsters raw rarity
wished for the old equivalence
three branch government parity.
The fool, his head in the sand
same fool his head in the clouds
purposely missing a meeting
loving his crowds racist shouts
the sycophants bow to the boss
his cabinet praises and sweats
how ‘sad’ can adult children get
his highness at a total loss and
lost in a partisan swampy sea
cancelling his own party primaries
at a loss for words and new ways
to deal with the nation and world
using mob methods and old school ways
he believes his own lies and money pays.
Coda for Congressional hearings:
Perjury problems remain for the POTUS
and the Ukraine in the Biden blame game.
