Theatre of the Absurd
Like an actor in a theatre of the absurd,
there stepped onto the stage a horrid clown,
an ego-maniac who makes his own staff clap for him
and who fast is bringing a nation down.
With just one month in office he’s done enough
that in another country could get himself kicked out.
Why some applaud him heartily I can’t comprehend!
Of the fact that he’s a liar, there can be no doubt!
A man who screwed so many with his own businesses
is now in charge of US! How can this be?
Admitting that he pays no taxes, yet we have to do it?
He puts the rich above us all. Why can’t people see?
He claims that more than any other president, he’s been
on the cover of Times, and eleven is his number.
Nixon’s number is at fifty-five. Does Donald think
we are in his movie plot I think called Dumb and Dumber?
Tweeting boasts from a phone that’s not even secure.
For higher ratings for “Apprentice” he asks that people pray.
Speaking to a nation about black history month,
he seemed to think Frederick Douglass is alive today!
He tweets how thousands of Syrian refugees
were (by Obama) let inside our nation.
In reality, two-thousand had got in.
His only talent is exaggeration!
He claims that the crowd for his inauguration
was the largest ever. Oh REALLY?
The picture that he tweeted of the big event
was dated the day AFTER actually!
Hanging up on leaders. That’s so presidential.
Calling people names, like Rosie is so fat,
Mexicans are rapists and “some, I assume, are good . . .”
At least he’s just a president and not some diplomat!
He uses words for women, like “a piece of ***.”
I’m appalled women voted for that pig at all.
And the big stupidity that many voted for
is his huge ambition to build a freaking wall.
He thinks Mexico will pay? It will bite us in the butt!
Their tunnels still will run beneath the ground.
Keeping even citizens from returning to their homes
and fighting court decisions. Is this leader even sound?
His tweets concerning terrorists in Paris at the Louvre
turns out it was a MALL named Louvre and some Egyptian guy!
He blames the airports’ chaos, brought on by his ban,
on Delta’s bad computers. Another Trumpy lie.
In some White House position called “public engagement”
he put a foul-mouthed woman from his Apprentice show
Three alumni of Goldman Sacks. That is all we need!
Sara Palin cried cronyism. For once, SHE’s in the know!
The list of his absurdities go on and on and on.
Comedians should be having a heyday!
However, it’s MY country and I feel quite concerned.
Sure wish that crazy clown would go away.
This theatre of the absurd will run indefinitely
until the audience can stand no more.
Stand up and boo, people; throw apples at his head.
His acting sucks; kick his butt out the “stage right” door!
