Diversions crippled damaged exposed.
No, it’s not! Yes, it is! Shiny bauble – did they follow that?
Look for the pollsters, they work in the night.
One blue, one red – I’ll take two, hope to sleep tonight…

Double-Down Don

You won the office most thought you’d lose
By making statements, you played the news.
You made big promises, it’s quite a list
Orders to Senate, let nothing be missed.

First thing to do is turn back the clock
Cancel all programs, old solutions to block.
Claim the economy is going quite bad
Obama’s solutions at best were a fad.

If a memo’s reviewed by the leftwing press
Just who’s to know – you made a quick guess.
They checked the answer you thought would fly,
So question questions, and continually deny.

Pandemic is peaking you took to the mike
Ignoring experts, deaths continued to spike.
Cotton smudged makeup, not good for your look
Pence wears a mask, you think he’s a snook.

So many people your inaction has killed
You blame the governors, claim they’re unskilled.
You act like a loser, you act like a clown
So many wrong answers, The Don doubles-down!

Greatest Of All

I’m finding Décima Poetry offers a platform to voice rants and outrage as well as thoughts of hope and love.

Here is an example of my latest Décima Poetry Rant
 

Early morn manic excreting
Ludicrous rants of angry souls.
His twisted facts and twisted goals
Are his subjects of vile tweeting.

Race baiting’s the point of greeting
As he seeks to divide us all
He’s desperate to avoid a fall.
When leadership lacks restriction
And words nothing more than fiction
His failings are greatest of all!

Buffoonery

Selected Haikus Donald Trump Might Have Written

©2018 cj holm

the art of the deal
is built on bluff and bluster
-cheeseburger sizzle

————————————————–

Locked in plush cabin
soaring on our Airforce One
putt rolls past the cup

————————————————–

two years this office
golden trash bin overflows
cuckoo – cuckoo

————————————————–

on the Potomac
well after sunrise in east
two generals quake

————————————————–

Vladmir offers hand
in so many helpful ways
no collusion

————————————————–

watching my white house
so many talking heads
two scoops of ice cream

Spin Cycle

Fluff

Staff’s wash and wear brains
gloomy from so much tweeting
-just cleanse, rinse, repeat
