He Won’t Back Down

He Won’t Back Down



He won’t back down from anything he’s said–
and that is both a virtue and a vice.
Of media reproach he shows no dread.
He’s proud to tell you once and twice and thrice.
Of course, the things he says are far from nice.
They’re craziness — and maybe common sense.
He says that lousy losers carry lice.
He says intensity can get intense.
The truths that he conveys are not immense–
but often they are quickly understood.
Simplicity should govern in events,
he indicates. The simple path is good.
For his great popularity there’s cause:
the simple render him sincere applause.
