Donald at the Bat – Day 1350, Trump, the Cheater (parody to ‘Good King Wenceslas’)

Day 1350, Trump, the Cheater (1)


Trump cheats on his income tax

And opposes science.

Science, data, numbers, facts;

Trump stands in defiance.

Covid hit coast cities first;

Blue state toll was cruel.

Now there’s been a red state burst;

Trump’s base is its fuel.



Told Trump what would happen

If his rabid base persists,

Shoutin’, hootin’, clappin’.

Science shows that Covid spreads

When folks crowd together.

That’s the reason Fauci dreads

Coming winter weather.


Donald is incompetent

And immune to shaming.

He is never penitent,

Though his pants are flaming.

Covid 19’s victims rise;

US ranks are thinning.

Covid thrives when Donald lies;

Does this look like winning?


(1)  May be sung to, “Good King Wenceslas,” lyric by John Mason Neale, 1853.  The melody is from a 13th century carol, “Tempus adest floridum,” (the time is coming for flowering) a carol for the coming of spring, though “Good King Wenceslas” is about winter.
