Trump 2019 AD

 

 

What I have learned about the Mueller investigations to date,

Though the investigation is not complete,

The defenders of the president are weak, spineless, anti-American co-conspirators

And not to forget, Republicans are a bunch of proven yellow bellied liars

Afraid to confront the Liar-in-Chief who is wrong with every decision he makes

 

Or could it be his supporters know exactly who he is, a white supremacist,

and is representing them well; white supremacy has never looked better

Getting real support from the Commander-in-whiteness

Makes this time a great time to make America White, errrrr, Great Again

 

After all the Republican fiascos we have seen through the years,

Why are they not being arrested for treasonous acts against our Democratic Republic?

Getting away with criminal shenanigans is a prime thrust of grifters

And in that, lying Republications rule the roost

 

“A lot of wall is being built”

“Mexico will pay for the wall”

“A big, beautiful wall”

The Commander-in-Lies leads the pack in fabrications

But “I believe the president” many low IQ sycophants clamor; sad, very unbelievably sad

 

Manafort lied, Flynn Lied, Cohen lied, all close members of the President’s team

Sara Huckabee carries the pail of lies for The Chief Liar

They had such hopes their treachery would go uncovered

That’s the beauty of America where ‘not guilty’ prevails until all the evidence is in

 

Not all public servants are greedy despot wannabes

For example, there’s Mueller’s pit bulldog Andrew Weissmann,

The hardball prosecutor relentlessly pursues Trump’s duplicitous cohorts

But the law is bent to the breaking point by the gangster maneuvers of

Trump’s collaborators

 

There are 34 indictments and 6 guilty in Trump’s dominion so far and counting

Though family members are in the cross hairs of Mueller’s line of vision

The evidence abounds against the Trump offspring possibly to be indicted

To be forever disgraced in the history of America’s criminal betrayers

 

Absolution and forgiveness for this gang is impossible

They dared to bring the Constitution to its knees in pursuit of their evil purposes

Their insatiable self-centered mindset manifests with every word they speak

Their divisive deeds have appalled the American people

And brought the rest of humanity to view America with contempt and distrust

 

Is there an antidote to America’s betrayal?

There must be as the wheels of justice grind on

But Mr. Mueller is on the case

And he may well save our Democracy yet

 

 

 

 

The Silence Of Extinction

 

 

The leaves are dead

The birds are dying

Fish are dying on the shores of the world

Dolphins are grounding themselves on unknown beaches

Whales lay deaf in polluted waters

Beaching themselves dying

Land animals are having their problems too

People are dying every day due to pollutants and bullets

Most dying before their time

 

Industrial oligarchs who are impervious to the apocalyptic signs

Kill all hopes of a decent future for humanity

They hide their profits

Hoping to outlive the catastrophe and chaos

They have wrought.

 

Do you hear the silence of extinction?
