To receive respect, one must have respect.


Respect for the President
By Franklin Price

We should respect the President
At least respect the seat
Respect not coming from the hill
The Donald must be beat

He was elected legally
The voters had their sway
The  Constitution worked again
Electoral College had its say

The media and congress
Want the interloper out
He should not be the president
It's not what he's about

He's not of the establishment
He's out to make things right
The Congress now is forced to work
He is their biggest plight

They'll fight him every tooth and nail
The Nation to ignore
No matter what the cost to all
Must get him out the door

He wants to make the nation great
To raise it up again
Take away the graft  from congress
Maybe send some to the pen.

Trump would do a little better
If he also had respect
For the presidential seat he holds
His foolish tweets just don't connect 

He's not a prepubescent
Although he sounds a lot like one
Most think that  he is foolish
For this non-Presidential fun

He needs to think before he tweets
Of the causes and effect
Has to do with being President 
Not politically correct

Until he respects the office
And stops foolish tweets and  speech
The recognition he desires
Will be out of his reach

I agree with you here, Franklin. We need to quit whining about who became president and start rallying to support him, and on the other hand, he needs to think before he reacts on social media and to the press. Great poem.

Thanks for visiting and agreeing. Trump brings on a lot of the negativity he gets, but, I must say, he stays in the forefront Merry christmas
