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!

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!

the art of the deal
is built on bluff and bluster
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
watching my white house
so many talking heads
two scoops of ice cream
walls made out of hate
and built to keep others out
-make better prisons

Staff’s wash and wear brains
gloomy from so much tweeting
-just cleanse, rinse, repeat
Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 211 Brain / Cleanse
If it isn’t a word it should be!
NOUN — A sudden nonsensical remark or an unrestrained tweet:
“Donald’s trumpation perplexed his staff and the nation “·
MORE – A tweeted nocturnal emission:
SYNOMYNS – Babble · Hubbub · Blather
With apologizes to Bobby Darin and his “Talk to the Animals”
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
