The Trumpafoon

A ghost has appeared, in the media machine;

with snake-like eyes, a suit pressed clean.

A jaundiced master, missing plans;

but racists fight to join his Klans.

This apparition is the Trumpafoon,

he inhabits screens in every room.

On every box, in every square;

he splits us like his ends of hair.

Repeating lines of greed and hate;

no ways to make the US great.

He says he’s rich, will help the poor;

well mostly whites and other boors.

‘I make great walls, the bestest words;

if I built nests, there’d be more birds.

I push the hardest, when you don’t shove,

I repackage fear into misplaced love.

I’m the best there is, and of all time,

and immigrants are the cause of crime.’

His hair is orange, his mouth spews pus,

bringing out the very worst in us.

America’s problems are big and real;

but he banks upon demagogue appeal.

He measures fingers, has 2 right feet,

he mass exports his self-conceit.

His art of the deal has no heart,

his best hot air comes out as fart.

His crimes are lies, greed, and violence;

best accomplice? Apathy; silence.

But global temp is no a recent hire;

It’s our atmosphere becoming dire.

‘The greatest way to cool the earth,

is kill the grass, and replace with turf.

Melting ice? Mother Nature’s tired,

My solution: Tell the bitch she’s fired.

Hide your footprint, kick a tree,

make signs, worship celebrity.’

He bellows this shite, in our hallowed halls,

and promises to have the biggest balls.

But the only thing his nuts are doing:

Pissing people off, swelling, and screwing.

He blows really hard to cloud your thinking;

then sell you water when the ship is sinking.

So when it’s finally time to vote,

don’t make him captain of the boat.

Instead of tow, please draw a line,

for soon we may run out of time.

If he wins, it remains our fate,

4 years divided, instead of Great.
