Generally, I will stay away from politics. This is a history blog, right? But history is in the making every day. Also, I am by no means a poet. With that in mind, I’ve begun this poem, but really think it needs more verses. I’m sure you can help!
He Says With Conviction
“I can pardon myself,” says the Liar in Chief,
Yet people still ask me, “What’s your beef?
He’s the leader we need.”
Oh, can I please get relief!!
“America First” is the flag that he waves.
Yet Ivanka’s goods in the East are the rave.
So when ZTE misbehaves,
“Oh no, it’s Chinese jobs we must save!”
When the EPA head guy, Scott Pruitt,
For first class airfare, issues an edict,
Then fingers point, he just shrugs,
“Actually, my staff made me do it.”
