Double Down -A Rondel for Donald Trump
A Rondel for Donald Trump
When those Fake News polls keep coming 'round
And their predictions drag you down,
Just face the music like a Man
And deny it all, the best you can
As you try to hide that deepening frown.
There is, alas, an ever-growing sound
The quiet voice that ever gains more ground
That makes you grasp at each more desperate plan
To salvage your sinking ship.
But there is no helpful, salvaging sound
Within the silence all around,
To save you from the darkness closing in
To spare the wages of your sin,
To stay the darkness that abounds
Through which you cannot hope to slip.
