The Campaign after the Campaign

 

 

Facebook leftists share anti-Trump memes
With great zeal. Hell, they form posting teams!
Let the wailing begin!
Will this crap do Trump in?
Will it slow down his pace? In their dreams….

Too Far

Too Far

 

 

Now this time, people, Trump has gone too far—
Far worse than the too far he went before!
We never guessed that he had this in store.
He hit hard when we only meant to spar.
Having wished on a more progressive star,
We were assured that time would wage our war
For us. But Donald Trump’s outrageous score
Keeps rising – and it’s outraged that we are!
This time, we’re sure, he’s done his own ass in.
His bonfire will be soon just one weak ember.
His Twitter tricks, we’re sure, are growing thin.
His rhetoric we’re moving to dismember.
He can’t recover from this latest sin.
We’ll crush him like a bug – as in November.

Cries of Protest

Cries of Protest

 

 

In the Valley of Silicon, wise
High-tech leaders protest with sharp cries
Trump’s vile immigrant bans.
He has fucked up their plans
To take work from our own I.T. guys!

(Silicon Valley leaders object to Trump’s immigration bans.)

Ghostland

Ghostland

 

 

They’re the mere ghosts of sad, slaughtered sheep.
All their confidence lies in a heap.
Their breasts shudder and heave.
They just cannot believe
All the promises Trump means to keep.

God Bless America

God Bless America

 

 

(Trump Version)

 

 

God bless America,
Land Trump makes great!
Stand beside her
And guide her
And ignore all the losers who hate!

From the mountains
To the valleys
To the Trump Towers
Standing tall,
God bless America!
Trump’s got it all!
God bless America!
Trump’s got it all!

Notes

 

 

In general, this version of the popular patriotic anthem is intended to irritate those affected by Trump Derangement Syndrome, not to express my sincerely-held beliefs. I’m much more circumspect about Mr. Trump than you may imagine. But I do admire his many supervillain qualities and am stunned by his smoking-hot wife. Ouch! Plus, I held my nose a lot harder for McCain, that wretched, conniving, malicious little warmonger, than I ever could have for Trump.

Line 5: They hate because they are losers.

Line 8: Song was composed while I was staying in the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas. I was sure glad I wasn’t staying in the Hillary International Hotel, the Bernie International Hotel, or the Marco Rubio International Hotel. (Doorways in that one would have been too low even for me.)

Line 10: Please note careful ambiguity. What is it that Trump has? America? All the qualities he needs to succeed? Whatever it is, it’ll make defeated leftist and establishment types really angry – which is, of course, my purpose.
