Day 1114, Revenge
Trump’s never been held to account
For whom he might cheat or might mount.
And now, once again,
This most flawed of men
Made one more successful dismount.
Acquittal let Trump off the hook,
(Republicans know he’s a crook.)
But they were afraid,
He’ll tweet a grenade,
It’s obvious; just read his book. (1)
Today, in the White House East Room,
Trump called a big rally to fume
At each Democrat
And Romney, that rat,
With veiled threats of impending doom.
So, we’re asking which Democrat
Can take Donald down on the mat.
In mud with a pig,
(The pig loves the gig;)
Is it wise to trade tit for tat?
Now Donald will wax bellicose,
Not difficult to diagnose.
He can’t understand
An ethical stand,
So he’ll rant and rave and be gross.
When Donald campaigns, he attacks;
He tweets and he hews and he hacks.
He’s rude and uncouth,
Cares nothing for truth.
His base cheers each swing of his ax.
