I try not to politicize my poetry, but on
occasion my muse overpowers me. Such
is the case with this poem, submitted to
Poets United Poet Pantry
Consider the right-fighter
We’ve one in the White House today
If you dare to disagree with him
There’s sure to be hell to pay
When he speaks he shows his ignorance
And embarrassing lack of knowledge
One wonders if he obtained his degree
From Kindergarten College.
He tells us Andy Jackson
Tried to avert the Civil War
Never mind that poor old Jackson
Had died many years before.
No sooner has he filled his staff
And everyone is hired
Than someone dares to disagree
And he’s shouting “You’re Fired!”
I try to hope for the future
But anxieties linger
If only there were a greater distance
Between “the button” and his finger!
