Beyond politicians campaigning,
Could someone please do some explaining
How industry lobbyists
And billionaire hobbyists
Are helping the swamp get its draining.

At his rallies, a new full court press:
Dump on cities that he calls “a mess”.
Give that baby a rattle
As he provokes the battle
Of America versus U. S.

A resumé based on exaggeration
He sees no Russian meddling at all
Experience, at best, is rather small
“Agrees with me” his main qualification.

This self-proclaim’ed border wall protector
Who’s prosecutor role was overstated
Was found by both sides to be poorly rated,
And will not be Intelligence Director.

John Ratcliffe how your comet blazed and fell
But don’t waste time on doubt, regret and fretting
You’re just the next to not survive the vetting
On senior staffers’ longmarch straight to Hell.

And now update your page in Wikipedia
To show how you were trumped-up by the media.

Proud misfits rise devoid of empathy
Dear leader speaks a “no” that smells like “YES!”
What target’s next is anybody’s guess
In real life, an 8-chan fantasy.

Another rambling hate-filled manifesto
Another round of worthless thoughts & prayers
No one inside the Senate really cares.
No votes, because the NRA done said so.

What is this evil crawling at our borders
Why is this crisis filling filthy cages
Where comes this darkness that within us rages
Who are the people following who’s orders.

An angry disaffected white defendant
An exponent of our second amendment.

8/6/19
(533)

White, Black, Brown. The difference is small.
For Green’s the best color of all.
The rich save their cares
And sincere thoughts and prayers
For the stock market in its free fall.

8/7/19
(532)

Palm Springs is the desert, but please.
One-Hundred Twenty-One Degrees (?!?!?!)
Global warming’s complete.
That ungodly heat
Can cause one tremendous unease.

8/8/19
(531)

What a way to break up a fam.
ICE knocks on the door, and then, wham.
Now a child’s alone.
To quote Nina Simone,
Hey Mississippi, Goddam!

8/9/19

Tucker Carlson is quite a guy.
“White Supremacy’s only a lie”.
Racist, sexist and fake.
Glad he’s taking a break,
And his sponsors are saying “buh-bye”.

My rally here, it really drew a crowd.
Much bigger than the one held for O’Rourke.
That loser’s really crazy. What a dork.
Cute baby. Bet he’ll do his parents proud.

Camera’s ready. Now, thumbs-up and smile.
Wall-Mart, you say? I hear they like me there.
Don’t let the baby mess my wifey’s hair.
Just let his uncle take him for a while.

I’m here to show America I care,
And tell the world my empathy’s not fake
And pose with all these nurses on their break
And get a tee time at a course somewhere.

To make this country great again’s my credo.
And by the way – too bad about Toledo.

8/11/19
(528)

And as expected, while our eyes wide shut,
With scarce a trace of plausible denial
A certain man is now exempt from trial
As some unseen director hollers “Cut!”.

On private planes, on islands, in penthouses
A bank of faces most of us have seen
Engaged in acts that lay beyond obscene
Their partners’ lack of willingness arouses.

The rare elite – their power is a drug.
When darker forces find the means to flaunt you,
Til your indulgences come back to haunt you,
Yet in your hand, the pow’r to pull the plug.

But Jesus, what a life and what a ride.
(And no, it did not end with suicide).

The rich and connected Epstein
Raped many an underage teen.
Before he stood trial,
He was jailed for a while,
And then h

Letting key conservation laws lapse,
With our future, the man’s shooting craps.
He’ll hold the distinction
Of spurring extinction
And world eco-system collapse.

8/14/19
(525)

In Dayton, that guy with the gun
Ended up on a breathtaking run.
26 shot, they reckons
In just 32 seconds.
A new record. He’s Number One.

8/15/19

Unwanted advances cause grief!
The victims deserve some relief!
The next man down? Bingo!
Placido Domingo.
(But still, not our Grabber-in-Chief).

8/16/19
(523)

Gorgeous land and peaceable folks.
Ah, the images Greenland evokes.
Though his aides may deny it,
Trump wanted to buy it
As ice for all his Diet Cokes.

8/17/19
(522)

Those Rhode Island guards are the worst.
Driving trucks into crowds undispersed.
They find so resplendent
The Second Amendment
While pepper spraying the First.

8/18/19
(521)

Union workers at Royal Dutch Shell
Were given the option from Hell:
Hear what Trump had to say,
Or no pay for the day,
And no shouting or protests as well.

8/19/19
(520)

Afghanistan
Beyond the norm
Needs
Comprehensive
Bomb Reform.

8/20/19

Grab your surfboard. Catch a wave, and ride.
The water of Lake Michigan awaits
But only time and chance will tell your fates
From that ammonia and cyanide.

A deadly spill for days left unreported
Til fish by thousands floated belly up
But not to worry friends. Relax. Drink up.
The company at fault will get this sorted.

In Indiana flows the Calumet
Upstream, an old steel mill blast furnace blows
Without a word, the toxic mixture flows.
How sad those poor shareholders might get wet.

“Permitted levels” now, they say, relieved.
Without a word why they should be believed.

8/21/19

Yesterday, Donald Trump was emphatic:
Loyal Jews should not vote Democratic.
Should they just follow orders
Like his Nazi supporters?
His logic’s somewhat problematic.

8/22/19

The Amazon now is aflame.
Greed and ignorance take up the blame.
Like Atlantis before,
Paradise is no more,
This poor world. It cannot be the same.

8/23/19
(516)

Emboldened by the actions of our leader,
World dictators and despots wield their power
The stronger take and let the weaker cower
What happens next will need no psychic reader.

His ill or good intent does not much matter
For style and result set such example
A blueprint for all those who who wish to trample
And bleed the world while their accounts gets fatter.

Baha’i faith says peace is inevitable.
A true “planetization of mankind”.
And through that, what exactly would we find
And what we found, how would it be profitable.

The forward path, so bloodily debated
And yet each particle inter-related.

8/24/19

Our Exalted Trade Warrior Wiz
Tweets demands to American Biz.
The man hereby orders
They leave Chinese borders.
Now, who does this guy think he is?

8/25/19

Joe Walsh is just full of repentances.
Was a racist (but that’s in parenthesis).
Now he wants to be the
GOP nominee.
Hey, at least he can speak in full sentences.

8/26/19
(513)

A bit of fumble on the global stage.
His glib and shallow comebacks miss their tone
The world moves forward as he stands alone
The spin from staff’s success is hard to gauge.

Japan won’t play along with his deception.
Great Britain humbly asks him for Trade Peace.
While Putin’s invitation gets no grease,
Macron’s guest from Iran gets a reception.

His buddy Bolsonaro took a beating
But Donald has no time for climate change.
By afternoon his mind was out of range
And soon enough the man was off a-tweeting.

Some say our Leader isn’t having fun
In Biarritz at the ol’ G6+1.

8/27/19
(512)

One man’s vanity.
Ecological insanity.
A crime against humanity.
Insert my profanity.

8/28/19
(511)

To Doral, Trump gave out invitations
To the folks of the G7 nations
Tho it sounds like a gas,
They may want to pass
Because of Health Code violations.

8/29/19
(510)

The news from our great EPA:
Methane limits get loosened today.
Big Oil gets a pass
On releasing their gas.
Drill away! Frack away, Fart away!

8/30/19

They’re crowded and unsanitary.
No showers or toothbrushes. Scary.
The food there is rotten
The children, forgotten.
And is Oversight welcome?
Not very.

8/31/19
(508)

Our Government wants you to eat!
The fatty, the salty, the sweet!
Old guidelines? Passé!
The Donald Trump Way
Is processed foods and lots of meat!
