Day 1407, The Dow Jones Rising
Now we’re sure that Donald’s leaving,
The Dow Jones is on the rise.
Although Donald Trump is grieving,
We’ve grown weary of his lies.
Trump has paused in his obstruction
Of transitioning to Joe;
Voters sent a clear instruction,
“Donald Trump, you have to go.”
Donald Trump has been rejected;
“Hallelujah!” sing the skies.
Although some folks are dejected:
(Kim and Putin and those guys.)
Now we’ll have to see if Biden
Can make Covid go away.
We know science will be guidin’
From Inauguration Day.
Will Trump’s tail remain prehensile
Once he’s tossed out on the dump?
We must see if Michael Pence’ll
Go on kissing Donald’s rump.
Although Donald’s not conceding,
In a post-election trance,
We will have Joe Biden leading
And have no more sycophants.
Will we still face the obstruction
By Mitch on the Senate floor?
Can he stop Joe’s reconstruction,
Which is what we voted for?
Are right wingers patriotic?
Do they care if we succeed?
Will they still stay so despotic,
As is common for their breed?
Those supporting Trump’s sedition,
(There are more than just a few.)
Or with autocrat ambition,
May remain obstructive glue.
Though Trump ripped the world asunder,
As right-wingers cheered him on,
Will they let Joe fix their blunder
Now that Donald Trump is gone?
Now investors are encouraged;
So we see the Dow Jones rise.
Although others stay discouraged,
Sickened by the Donald’s lies.
Our Democracy was shaken
And we’re still in our sick bed.
If enough of us awaken,
We can rise and move ahead.
