Look on the Bright Side

Look on the Bright Side


The puppet president of Chairman Xi
Is now in place, so history advances.
Of course, America must take its chances.
This age-encumbered mediocrity
Who wets his nether garments frequently
Has long adopted idiotic stances.
Incapable of clever verbal dances,
He stumbles, stalls, and babbles ceaselessly.
Don’t worry, though – for Chairman Xi is boss.
Derelict Joe just carries out his orders.
Though Joe’s ascendancy is clearly loss,
A deep abasement of his current quarters,
Xi’s wisdom offers noodles, rice, and sauce
From far beyond our now-dissolving borders.
