well gary bateman the pied piper sure sings many tunes as the rats follow him to doom lol quacking crazy loon thought this sang along your tune smiling 

Donald Duck Chancellor of this fowl kingdom 
wearing an upside down smile's raging hypocrite backwards 
this deranged Duck twitters to and fro as his unhinged subjects 
unwittingly applaud him onto a victory march that never appears equal 
except in his alternate universe of oneness 
Calamity Jane perchance is on the horizon 
while war looms close by this feathers pride himself 
on his big show asking for a mirror to check his orange glow
he jokes and preens fading in and out so it would seem logical
tearing down all good morals he alienates with his constant magic escapades
Sleight of hand reflections move 
with this fake news it gets exposed
the big top rotates under an eclipsed lie
fire breathing condemning all those against his way
entering the arena for the next late show
Now Big Bird has been caught fibbing 
just when they thought everyone was safe
getting off the band wagon or so to speak
Just signing the pact with her feathered friend 
letting on they are getting on so well for the world to see buddies 
Almost joined at the hip like in their loyalty reigning over truth 
in this ungodly circus of the vainest sort
Where the funfair clowns abound
under fabrications an orangutan watches on 
beating his chest in an ape like manner and solid hands 
he has no way to express words
puffing and panting swaggers
living under thee umbrella protected from the truth’s influence
Alvin and his chipmunks sing the national anthem 
while the confederate flag waves goodbye over democracy
begins the three little pigs stages as they enter the building 
their houses from clay flamed with truth
ransomed for vanities sake no good ending can come

Earthquakes separate the earth
floods come with grave disaster  
hurricanes winds rise from the greatest source 
even this cannot deter or distract this awful Duck
one mission under a selfish chant of 
quack a doodle quack, quack a doodle quack, quack a doodle quack
which only translates to me 
only me, me only me, me only me!

a co written piece by Donna Loughman and Liam McDaid

Hello Liam Mate!! I had commented on this one earlier when Donna had released first. I believe that both of you already know my thoughts quite well on the never-ending subject and nightmare for the USA and the rest of the world. I really like how both of you expressed this subject in a lighter verse than I did. But I do think all of us hit the target so to speak with what needed to be said. "Democracy" indeed is a very precious thing. It will always be a target of demagogues. A FAVE!! Best, Gary

Liam, thank you for posting this poem and for allowing me to have co-written it with you. You spearheaded the seriousness of an evil narcissistic society that needs to change with much needed humor. Thank you again for the honor!

Thank you so much Anne-Lise! Yes, with all the heartbreakingly catastrophic events in today’s world a lot of prayer, and a little humor is needed. I appreciate your comment!
