Poetic Justice

A Border War

We knew Trump would be tough on immigration,
But lately there’s been an alarming escalation.
“We’re getting gang members out,
“We’re getting drug lords out,”
In what he refers to as a “military operation.”

Poetic Justice

Let It Shine

Trump’s media attacks are characterized by harshness,
And his “enemy” meme is starting to stick to the press.
But the media mainstream
Now has it’s own meme —
WaPo’s new tagline: “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

Poetic Justice

Animal? Mineral? Vegetable?

It was nominated to be Secretary of Labor,
But it had been accused of being an abuser.
But even after it withdrew,
We still wished we knew
What, for heaven’s sake, is a PUZDER?

Poetic Justice

No Zest to Investigate

As the White House devolves into chaos and confusion,
And Team Trump responds with rebukes and accusations,
Why hasn’t the Congress
Moved to address the mess?
And where is the Republicans’ old zeal for investigations?

Poetic Justice

Flynn’s Veep Sin

When you call up the Rooskies to negotiate sanctions,
You can be pretty sure several spooks are a-listenin’.
But when Mike Flynn briefed Mike Pence,
He lied to him, and hence
Lost his job over the euphemism, “incomplete information.”

Poetic Justice

The Tax Plan Cometh

The hit on the rich will be nominal,
The effects on the lower brackets, abominable.
With a guy from Goldman Sachs
Rejiggering the income tax,
It’s no wonder Trump says it’ll be “phenomenal.”

Poetic Justice

White House Tenement

Donald Trump doesn’t spend his nights carousing,
But lately, about his home he’s been grousing.
Despite that it’s a mansion,
Trump can’t get past the notion
That he’s living in “government housing.”

Poetic Justice

A Parliamentary Objection

He might be our so-called president,
And he might be the White House’s sole resident,
But when Trump goes to London,
Because of his “racism and sexism,”
He won’t be allowed to address Parliament.

Poetic Justice

The Silent Republicans

As the Trump bulldozer buries the weak,
And havoc and chaos he continues to wreak,
Where are the disciples
Of Republican principles,
And why don’t they stand up and speak?

Poetic Justice

A Canticle for Arnold

Since Ike, every president’s had a National Prayer Breakfast,
But to date only one’s talked about “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Trump’s lamentations on its ratings
Were especially grating,
But his prayer for Schwarzennegger was just the tackiest.
