Overheard on Mt Rushmore

Picture this: Mt. Rushmore With its most imposing heads Discussing certain rumors Which the White House likely spreads. “He can’t be really serious!” Groused Teddy, steaming mad. “I think he is,” calm George replied. “He’s nuts, though, I should add.” “There isn’t room up here at all,” As Thomas pointed out. “He’ll just buy the surrounding land,” Said Abe, “without a doubt.” “But what a nerve!” they all agreed. “Such chutzpah truly shocks! How could his head be made in stone When it is full of rocks?”

Ha, ha! Perfect, ilene!... Too bad Mr. POTUS would never let himself enjoy this one. If he just kicked back for a moment, he could bust a gut laughing at everything satirical that's been written about him... Oh, well... ~ A Dreamer

Hahahaha! I just read this tonight about Trump wanting his face on Mt. Rushmore! And I thought the pharaohs of Egypt were vain! I love the clever way you approached the writing of this little gem! / M

If I laugh at nothing else today, I got a big one here. I will refrain from saying where his head belongs in order to keep some semblance of dignity. lol Ilene. This is great!
