Ode to a President

Many Americans, at least it would seem,
Win Megabuck lotteries, inside their day dreams;
What will I do now, with all of this loot? 
I’ll jet far and wide, like a Rock Star en route.

And yet, there’s a man, at the head of our state,
Worth many vast billions—no weak featherweight;
He could have declined, who needs all the grief,
But instead serves us tirelessly, bringing relief.

THANKS to the millions—‘Deplorables’ strong,
Who saw his potential and sang his theme song;
About Making us Great again, restoring times past,
Returning lost jobs through fair trade deals—at last!

Yet mainstream ‘the media,’ despise you and peeps,
Their Deep State criminal, lost to your sweep;
MAGA did resonate—you won handily,
Our thin skin now thickened, by their blasphemy.

In the end no collusion—just more of the same,
Fake news by leftists, with HATE on the brain;
So thank you kind sir, and please drain that swamp,
A patriotic act perfectly befitting...
...#45, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP!

I am new to this group, but I must say, I have been welcomed so nicely. I enjoyed your poem very much! My mother taught me to never discuss religion or politics with people that only like to hear themselves speak! I too believe our President is taking his job seriously, and a country is only as strong as the leaders that are respected and supported by all the little people. Thank you! I needed that!.....Sherilynn

Congratulations on POTD honors, Michael. Regardless of the party I always try to show respect to our president. You know, if my history serves me correctly, when George Washington was elected POTUS, like our current Pres., he refused to take any pay. He said it should be looked upon as an honor. However in Mr Trump's case, I think his decision was for his vanity. Still. nice job!
