Opposition

 

 

“I stand athwart the Spirit of the Age!”
Mitt Romney tells us. “I’m opposing Trump
with all my reason and with all my rage!
I won’t be victory’s unsubtle chump.
Instead, I’ll kick each voter in the rump
until he learns to think a different way.
I’m an insightful, not impartial, ump.
Tomorrow must not be the Donald’s day!
Some say to cease — but I will have my say.
Trump is a menace to the universe!
He won’t acknowledge all my nuanced gray.
His black-and-white perceptions are a curse!”
Dear Mitt: you could have spared us all this drama–
if you had really stood athwart Obama.
