THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE

Gazing thru the looking glass
On your way down the rabbit’s hole
You’re led to believe it’s all a dream
Deception is his goal.

Slight-of-hand, might over matter
There will always be a spin
Anyway to defraud or mislead
Will serve him in the end.

Scheming, lying, double talking
The road shaky and unstable
Never forthright or honorable
Deals made under the table.

Now cavorting with the enemy
So very close to treason
He meets with them behind closed doors
Doesn’t have to give a reason.

Our safety now in jeopardy
No one’s got our back
Except what he calls “fake news”
Unprotected and under attack.

Spineless politicians
Turn their backs and walk away
Afraid to meet resistance
They are careful what they say.

Power, status and position
Keeps them all in line
No one will stand up to him
They make excuses every time.

Our freedom, in the balance
There’s so little we can do
He’s selling out our country
The red, the white and blue.

  1. Mr President is a vain, self-centered creature living in an allusion, who’s ego is fueled by his merry band of smoochers interested only in personal gain, thinking little of anyone or anything else… 🙂 I am sure that the masses are in the process of rallying, making sure they are doing it correctly and in a proper manner….. 🙂

      1. Just impeaching the president will not solve the issues as someone will simply step in and continue… it will take more than impeachment to solve the issues, but in time, and done properly, change will be made… 🙂
