Really Awful Trumped-up Charges.


One simply can’t conceive
That dumpy Donald Trump
The Democrats relieve
By licking Hil the Frump. 

The pollsters in their hordes,
With egos sadly bent,
Are falling on their swords …
Or say, ‘Not what I meant!’ 

Hil had it in the bag,
Or so one would have thought,
But she then rode a nag
That faltered; came to naught. 

While Donny did a sprint
To sneak up from behind;
No-one in Guvver-mint
More sneakier you’ll find. 

So Merry Cans end up
With what they’ve asked for, now,
But they have bought a pup
They will not want, and how! 

If those two are the best
The US(eless?)A can do,
I’d hate to see the rest;
They cannot have a clue!

This new election run
Had quite a heavy cost:
Whichever party won,
The public would have lost.

  2. Hmm, I still think the public managed to lose worse with Trump than they would have with Clinton. She’s no angel but a safe pair of hands is surely better than a maverick in today’s global uncertainty. Here’s a piece I just wrote about the election – have a read if you like:

    Hope you find it interesting!

      Enlightening and extremely depressing. One wonders how it was that Hillary failed to shoot him right out of the water by showing him up as the complete sham all these factors prove him to be.


  3. Can’t believe that these were the two best people they could come up with. This was really asking for trouble either way. Brilliant poem, Col. Your last two lines really sum it all up in a nutshell. 🙂


  4. You nailed it with those last two lines

    Your last two lines encapsulate it all; ain’t that the truth.

    I don’t understand that people do not grasp that this was not a vote for Trump but against the corrupt Clinton Dynasty. That woman is a psychopath.
