The President

By |2019-01-28T16:02:16-07:00January 29, 2019|

Not the first American president
to govern by lies and misdirection,
he is cunningly adept at it.

Brazenly focused on himself,
he feeds his ego and stuffs his pockets
with emoluments.

He makes the world safe for bigots,
opening wide the spigots
of prejudice.

Creating violent waves
that crash against the poor, he strips
lady liberty of her honor.

He shouts “fake news”
and stands to gain at the public trough
like no previous president.

Each day brings new disgrace,
yet somehow he has managed
to hold on.

Like all tyrants, he will fall.
Question is: when he does, will we
still have a country and a world?
