A sonnet trilogy, two caustic, one acrostic
What It Is Is Kangaroo Court Knots
Eight thousand lies from a genius so wise
the increasing of his suit pants waist size
and a tightening of facial muscles and jaw
nominating of Kavanaugh, Bully Barr at law
mondo bizarro comb over hair appearance
border separation of children from parents
appeal to Russia for interference with votes
calls facts and issues incomprehensible hoax
sycophants know for sure he won’t fire us
still lacks a national plan for the corona virus
penchant for placating, pandering to dictators
pathetic vocabulary less than most 4th graders
perfect model for a complete “loser” package
filled with constitutional damage and breakage.
No Four More! Por Favor, Señor!
Political partnership with Congress partisans
dirty politics in promotions and demotions
tweets filled with perfidy on a daily basis
often plays golf in a constipational stasis
negates career professionals in FBI and CIA
false pride, bragging, pouting day after day
temper tantrums, when questioned quite puerile
admires authoritarians, his dictator envy penile
pins the tail on his own dummy donkey mirror
focus on important issues never gets clearer
inexperienced appointees at his beck and call
panic attacks about Putin parties cause sweat
many pleasure trips via his Air Force One jet.
