My last verse on the perverse POTUS

On Last Looking into The Art of the Toxic Tweet


After John Keats

I have travelled where the Truth is sold
and many shady DC leaders seen:
found DT’s Towers and his clubs have been
where golfers faithful to the POTUS trolled,
and learned of brilliant deals, harsh and cold,
that won the USA as his domain.
Yet I never heard words so insane
until Trump’s toxic tweets gushed brash and bold:

I felt just like a scanner of the skies
who fears Korean missiles screaming down,
but dreaded, even more, Klan rebel cries
when POTUS praised his racist tribes—white men
rejoicing that his tweeted lures and lies
compelled a bloody coup in Washington.

Let's hope it's the end of the ogre!

A NEW HERMANíS HERMIT

Thereís a kind of hush all over the world
except for the squelching of sour grapes!
Now his fallacious flag has been unfurled,
thereís a kind of hush all over the world.
Now that his tiresome tweets have un-twirled,
heís throwing a tantrum behind the drapes.
Thereís a kind of hush all over the world
except for the squelching of sour grapes.
The more he crushes with ferocious feet,
the tastier the wine of his defeat!
