Liar Lawbreaker and International Shame Maker
You say you want a conman, braggart, liar, tax cheat, child thief
who upends nuclear negotiations when they come to his table
who insults soldier’s families, lawyers, even foreign merchant chief
living in a bigly bling bubble he creates his own narcissistic fable.
You turn on your computer screen and out pops his bloated face
you hear him deride anyone who speaks against him in opposition
you hear him make offhand remarks denigrating another race
you see him fire life-long civil servants from many positions.
You don’t like what you are reading and tell me he’s our POTUS
you don’t like admitting you’re tired of him being so egregious
dislike his dalliance with dictators and constant hyperbolic quotes
as courts from coast to coast notify him of multiple lawsuits litigious.
You think of your friends, family, children, stepchildren, and grand
and wonder just how much more of him our tired nation can withstand.
Hyperbolically Hoisting His Own Petard
Bragging about his own (petard) farts, twaddling tweets and false starts
Red herrings, blue herrings, new and old herrings too
one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, twenty three skidoo
all out the mouth and twaddling tweets of POTUS 45
a fish rotting from the head down and that ain’t no jive.
Awash in an abysmal swamp he stinks with a cabinet of slime
never draining, complaining he fires and refills it all the time
glorifying, repeatedly lying, and constantly hoisting his own petard
insulting people, American cities, nations, he plays his Trump card.
So full of himself he plugs and fills up his own golden toilet
he shat in his own red MAGA hat now he’s gonna have to boil it
Michelle Obama is right when she says,‘if they go low we go high’
but I have a hard time finding anything good to say about this guy.
There are many fish swimming in America’s polluted D.C sea
cast a thoughtful vote in 2020 – sink or swim and we will see.
Epitaph for a Fractious One 45th Wit
Narcissism of the most maxed out malignant kind
was just about all he was ever capable of performing
self-proclaimed King of Debt with a *mau mau mind
who continued daily deliberate deformation of democracy
frenetically focused on himself, of others he was blind
behind chain link cages he left innocent children swarming.
Mau-mau means to intimidate (as an official) by hostile confrontation or threats. Originally written on July 30, 2019.
