Our Father of Failure
(Hail the hypocritical hero of hype and hyperbole)
“As that through long continuance of his course,
Me seemes the world is runne quite out of square,
From the first point of his appointed sourse, and
being once amisse growes daily wourse and wourse.”
—Edmund Spenser (1552-1599) The Faerie Queene.
Our Father of Failure who lives in what you call a ‘dump’
Swallow your lying game legacy of blame and shame
Thy Blingdom’s numb, thy will be perfunctorily done
By all Republican Senators under the Washington sun
With the exception of one grandpa Senator from Utah
Forgive your Cabinet this day for not telling the truth
They don’t want to be fired or moved away from work
By the ignorant sycophants you have surrounding you
May you be led away from your temptation to insult
Degrade others leader’s merits and be very vindictive
As has been your daily elective and DELIVER US
After the election from your cruel immigration policy
Separating innocent infants and children from parents
For thine is now a diminished kingdom coming down
You disgrace it every passing hour, its office and glory.

For short poetry diners, here are some senryu one liners:
bottomless pit, full of self-pity, 45’s narcissisity.
45’s learning curve, leans to gutter balls, as he falls.
pardon me, pardon who, Pence pardon me too.
no smile, for himself goes the long mile, King of Denial.
lying media? fake news? Trump miscues.
Twitter swats Trump, his ratings in the dump, loser slump.
Trump Twitter trap, a D.C. wash and rap, cyber claptrap.
