Obama says that leaders overseas
are rattled hard by Trump’s near nomination.
Trump will not bow or get down on his knees
to potentates. Trump won’t court subjugation
to pacts that benefit some other nation
and leave our own diminished. That is clear.
Trump doesn’t practice careful cogitation
of the sort that Obama’s fans hold dear.
From funny ear to great big funny ear,
Obama is a thinker, we are told.
Those who express this thought are quite sincere–
but I for one am not completely sold.
If thinking, though, had really made this mess,
I would say that it’s time for recklessness.
