Your demagoguery and arrogance,
your shallowness and ignorance;
there’s a word that sums it up:
Help the rich, hurt the needy.
Withdraw from the climate treaty.
Tweet a lot of crazy stuff.
Embrace our foes, repel our friends.
Propel us closer to the end.
Ride a cart, don’t huff and puff.
Admire the dictators and the killers.
Disregard our nation’s pillars.
Lie when it’s easy, lie when it’s tough.
Cry “fake news” when reporting bites you.
Call them losers when patriots fight you.
If it helps regular folks, make sure it gets snuffed.
Half your Twitter followers are bots.
You and yours are pocketing lots.
Most rational folks have had enough.
Put people in charge of what they hate.
Destroy America to make it great.
It’s the opposite of compassion and love.
When you’re impeached or when you quit
and you’re looking for people to blame for it,
know it’s because you’re guilty of
