Day 1110, Fear and Loathing
The Democrats are summing up
And make a damning case.
Abuse of power keeps coming up;
And we must also face
That Donald Trump will cheat again
And may win four more years.
For, he’ll do anything to win;
He needs the cheers he hears.
We’ve heard Republicans, who say,
“The Democrats have proved
“That Trump’s a crook; I’ll still vote, “Nay,” (1)
“He should not be removed.
“We’ll let the people all decide;
“November, there’s a vote.
“My ‘guilty’ vote is suicide.
“ ‘Acquit,’ my wall and moat.”
The voters have been keeping score
Of evidence they’ve heard.
And, God forbid, we’ll give them more;
It’s worse with every word.
So, we will vote to let Trump go,
Then go out on the stump
And pray to God we do not show
Our loathing fear of Trump.
