Tiptoe

Tiptoe, tiptoe, what they say is not what they say it is . . . Cameras rolling, take one, action! “How stupid can you be? You’re fired!” He told a judge quite candidly. In take two, from his office on Fifth Avenue, He tweeted, “Nobody has more respect For women than I do.” On take three During a press conference, “We’ll blow terrorist Al-Baghdadi Out of existence.” Then he stood, saluted the flag, and Ordered General “Mad Dog” to protect the land. Tiptoe, tiptoe, what they say is not what they say it is . . . They say Doomsday is coming, Polar caps are melting, An asteroid just missed us today Iranians want a bomb To explode in Armageddon, And North Korea tested A long-range missile yesterday. Both sides are wrong... Beware, or pay dearly, To the victor belongs the spoils, For in the land of the free and Home of the braves, A new boss man's in town Fake news on display...bad men raining down Tiptoe, tiptoe, what they say is not what they say it is . . . The boss is riding, guns ablaze, shooting at the sun, Stirring up flames all across America, Russia, and China— The whole world’s wondering, who's this character? Wake up and smell the coffee! Republicans say, “He's the forty-fifth President today, Top dog in Washington, Who can activate the nuclear bomb.” With the greatest memory around... A double negative caused the problem He says America will be great again Then placed a ban on Muslims coming in. He made it clear to Peña Nieto, Bad hombres must go, That a wall on the border Will stop the illegal immigrant flow Where is the server and 50,000 emails~ Russia do you know? Tiptoe, tiptoe, what they say is not what they say it is…

I have others I would like to release but do not think it's the forum to do so. Tiptoe is a decent way to say "watch out" without offending anyone.... I am really happy you read it...Thank you
