Nothing Rhymes with Orange

 

 

Stuck with Trump and stuck with Pence

Between a wall and electric fence

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

Hateful hearts make blood run cold

Shaming the men who led, of old

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

Grab a pussy, fire a nuke

Twitter feed, filled with puke

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

Nasty woman, reporter gimp

Flapping his lips like an angry chimp

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

Bigly bad, greedy and crass

Forever kissing Putin’s ass

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

Three million more, give or take

Who didn’t fall for news so fake

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

This creep gets off on strife and schism

With bigotry, and every ‘ism’

But nothing rhymes with orange

 

Drain the swamp, and fill with piss

How did we ever come to this?

Because nothing rhymes with orange.
