TRUMPED! a 2017 inauguration day poem







by punkie

take the glasses from your pocket
survey the masses, open lockets

evil forces are everywhere,
in empty cupboards, under the stairs

orange lights flash signs of danger
beware of rich, blond, scary strangers

watch in fear as death approaches
cock your gun at fleeing roaches

shiver, shake, and teeth will chatter
when terror strikes at things that matter

red states spew election losses
hateful bullies become the bosses

blues resist, take to the streets
too late to change the fate we meet

high hopes we have that good prevails
sink low when pirates man the sales

hark now people, time to pray
a miracle will save the day

and in the night when things go bump,
you can bet it’s ‘cause of trump!
