Little Donald and Huge Vladimir



Misspeaking and walking back words thoughtlessly spoken to impress his suitor

He spoke without prior input and support from his intelligence community

How embarrassing that worldwide his words were condemned

And how demoralizing for the citizens of the United States


The world shouted “Fake words! Treason!”

But more incredible is this clown represents us

As the supposed leader of the free world

But this man who lost the popular vote by three million votes!

Was handpicked and this is the result we got


On June 16, an exchange of the faux title “Who’s the leader of the world now, chump?”

Took place before the world

Our tin man with no brain came in a poor second

But he will continue making believe he is the man in charge

Intimidating underlings but cowering before bigger little men than he


His supporters will continue to support him

The weaker ones will bow and scrape

But the rest of critical thinking citizens

Will wait for the next rigged election

Hoping that people who work the election will have gotten religion


His words at the conference were spoken to impress

But impress whom?

This query may be overlooked on purpose

As is the wont of evil doers

Who don’t want the truth to be known

But the real reason will come out

The truth will emerge even if it’s in bits and pieces


America, we will survive this partisan idiocy too

We have in the past because our institutions are strong

And we have learned from the past those vicious lessons

That falling prey to our basest nature

Is to remain mired in accepting unreason, lies and deceit
