I indulge in a bit of political satire,
although it’s hard to find the light side
of the present situation in my world.

With his pomposity
and juvenile viscosity
the king was feared by all
The men of the kingdom
soon formed a gangdom
its purpose the king’s downfall
They sought a way
with bluster and foray
to displace the king from his seat
The king unaware
with no words to spare
continued to rule by tweet
with rampant defamity
and threat of calamity
for those who would dare disagree.
Meanwhile people prayed fervently
and dreamed urgently
of the land of the brave and home of the free.
The end of this story
ignominy or glory
ultimately remains to be seen.
The dilemma continues
touted loudly on venues
Could we trade a king for a queen?
