‘Twas the night before inauguration, and all through the White House,
Lots of creatures were stirring, including Melania’s spouse;
All the stages were set on the Capitol with care,
In hopes that JLo soon would twerk there;
Trump writes a few tweets that will never be read,
While Jack Dorsey is waiting on hold with the feds.
And Melania in her McQueen jacket, and Trump in his toupee,
Were not planning on attending that HUGE day.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
Trump assumed it must be Black Lives Matter!
Away to the window, Trump went as fast as he could,
Ready to accuse those nasty boys from the “hood!”
The American flag hung like a giant band-aid,
Gave a new luster of hope to a nation dismayed.
When what to Trump’s crusty eyes should appear,
But an electric car and eight fierce queers.
With a diverse driver, so lively and vibing,
Trump knew in a moment it must be Joe Biden!
More rapid than bald eagles are going extinct he came,
He debated, then finally called them by name:
“Now Tanden! Now, Blinken! Now Yellen and Guzman!
“On, Haaland! On, Garland! On, Regan and Fudge;
“Get out you frauds and forget that wall!
“Now slink away, slink away, slink away all!”
As Trump still insisted he should be crowned,
In came the president-elect in a bound:
He was dressed all in blue from his head to his foot,
Including a pin from Obama which he dawned on his suit.
A bundle of bills hid behind his back,
Everyone speculates, “It must be a stimulus pack!”
Out with the old: the wicked blonde heiress,
There’s a new sheriff in town, it’s Kamala Harris!
Biden told some confusing stories, before getting to work
And gave relief to millions by replacing that jerk.
While America knew there would still be some lows,
A glisten of hope came as the sun arose.
No matter who gets the codes to our guided missiles,
The passion of the people will remain abyssal.
But the Trump era will fade, as he flees into the night.
America’s not great, but we could make it pretty alright.
