An Ode(?) to donald Trump



On First Gazing on Trump’s Mugshot

Much has unravell'd in the MAGA world,
With many goodly indictments on our screens;
But many red-state strongholds have I seen
Which hoards in fealty to the Donald hold.
Yet one world-wide exposure has been foretold:
That deep-brow'd loser, snapped at the scene;
Yet did I never dream of his tonsure’s sheen,
Till I beheld that basilisk stare, dead and cold:
Then felt I like a prisoner who’s surprised
When a decree comes to end his torture;
Thanks to brave Fani, who with eagle eyes
Has star'd down the traitors—election forgers
Look'd at each other with a wild surmise—
Silent, within a jail in Georgia.
