Talk To The Populist

With apologizes to Bobby Darin and his “Talk to the Animals”

trump
If I could talk to the Populist, just imagine it
Chattin’ with Donald in Trumpanzee
Imagine talking to a Spicer, chatting with a Conway
What a neat achievement it would be

If we could talk to the Populist, learn all his languages
I could take a Trumpian degree
I’d study Steve Bannon The racist, Priebus the chairman
Tillerson, Steve Mnuchin, and Price

I would converse with Jeff Sessions and Devos
And I would curse in fluent Senate-ease
If people ask me, “Can you speak Alternatives?”
I’d say, “Of courseative, can’t these?”

If I spoke slang to his Cabinet
The advantages why any fool on earth could plainly see
Discussing religion and ethos with intellectual Right Wings
That’s a big step backward you’ll agree

I’d study every populist behavior
So I could speak to all of them on site
If friends said, “Can he talk with communist or Bolshelists?”
You’d say, “Alt Left and you’d be right”

And if you just stop and think of it ain’t no doubt of it
I’m gonna win a place in history
If I could walk with the Populist talk with the Populist
Twist, Fib, Stoop with the Populist
And they could Twist and fib and lie and mislead me

Ode to The Inauguration (or By The Shores of Gitche Gloomy)

inauguration

Brave poets and writers,
True bards one and all.
Offer us wisdom,
Please answer the call.

When the world is in turmoil,
And our tempers inflamed.
Lost trust for our country,
Can our big trouble be tamed?

Tell us a story,
Of a man who is bold.
Who’s willing to tweet,
While his thoughts unfold.

A man who called
For proof as a birther
And now’s sincerely
A climate denier.

Judges women with numbers,
The best scored one through ten.
Then festoons girls with banners,
Making them more pleasing for men.

He dressed them in swimsuits,
Had them set by his knee.
Then if they’re worthy,
He grabbed them with glee.

After the pageant,
He’d leave on his jet.
Home to the office,
So much space to sublet

Now Trump takes control
From Hawaii to Maine
God help us bigly
While we’re under his reign!

-Clarence Holm

World Gone To Hell

 

tweet

In a world that some say has gone to hell,
Where chaos reigns and the races fight.
Pure science is doubted and religions rebel,
Global warmings rejected by tweets in the night.

There is no need to consider and ponder-
Just listen, follow, and then go with the flow.
These changes make the place better,
I know cause Trump has told me so.
