Paul, Peter and the Tweeter

Paul, Peter and the Tweeter Why not choose, a billionaire leader? One who is not an eloquent speaker. Trouble rises, he robs Paul to pay Peter. The bold rich need tax savings, forget about the meeker. From a distance, we watch the kingdom teeter. Him smirking on high, he thinks "What could be sweeter!" Why oh why, did so many choose that cheater? Global temperature rising, things aren't the same. Scientific facts need hiding, isn't that a shame? There's new logic he's applying, says coal dust isn't really flying. Even though the fish are bitter and you can't see them under the litter, no one can turn down the heater. "Fake News" he says, check out T-Man's Twitter. The Country is "Great Again", cause he ain't no quitter! Yet people are making less than their babysitter. Good jobs will go with free trade, might as well become a waiter. Otherwise you’ll starve sooner or later. People happy, he wants to build a wall. Mexico will pay, so build it tall. More immigrants? You don't need them at all. But no one left to pick the fruit, or to be at your beck and call. Watch it all fall, for sure the economy will stall. No one buying nothing at the mall. Meanwhile Klu Klux Klan standing tall. If they ask him, T-Man will let them guard his wall. Look for all the signs, a leader who's a hater. Mastertweeting, flatulater. A logic lacking debater, self-loving, self-promoting, congratulator! If he pushes the button, we might become a large crater. He'll spin it and tell those left, "I'm the great emancipator!" If you don't believe him, You’re just another disloyal traitor!

Great poem, Richard. My favorite part is "Mastertweeting, flatulater." Sardonic, hilarious and "rap style." Too bad there's no hip hop category on Poetry Soup, eh? Happy New Year.

I love it! The weird thing about the Mexico wall is his war against Mexicans over the MS13 Sur" Gang. They're not even Mexicans, they're El Salvadoran... So it's racism! El Salvadoran and Mexicans will get upset with you for calling them by the wrong Latin culture!!!!

If create a storm, it's your feelings, you put the news in poetic form.. I will probably create a storm with my spiritual writes, I too will want conversation. I posted one last night husband said thought I should not have, but nice response. So write on...well expressed.

Funniest poem, I've read today, Richard! Your sharp satirical wit is Light saber quick. Spot-on truth poetry w/a hilari (oops, I better not use that word, eh.) Anywho ... this is one fine twerpentine opine. Kai, ty for the use of that creative word. GREAT poem, w/a cautionary message. Love and peace always.

Awesome. How can we turn the Ku Klux Clan against him? Stranger things have happened. Goebbels was initially a communist, but probably tweeter man will remain a twerp. We need some twerpentine...

Is there any real difference? In the U K the The labour gov read as democs for U S, I E Blair kept on about the trickle down of wealth, so where was it? Or were the people just going to get a trickle after all the wealth flooded up to bail out the bankers, I think most of the leaders won't be down to their last 2 million anytime soon, it could be a big punch and judy show.' They pretend to be against each other but the wars and policy still cut the same path, good reading you Richard.'

Thanks Joe. The world is in a sorry state and those at the top continue to gorge themselves. All the while increasing the burden on the middle and lower income people.

You sure make a point here Richard, any man can be a leader, but can one born with a silver spoon, become a total man, like your poem, like its statement.

Yes, no problem with tax cuts if they are equitable. The belief is that giving the top income earners and corporations tax breaks will somehow benefit the middle and lower income earners. Sadly the middle is shrinking. A shrinking middle is great if you are dieting but doesn’t bode well for a thriving economy.

I think the situation is same, if not worse, in our country too, Richard. You have a knack with words:)
