Donald the President went to town On members of the voting public Gritting his teeth and squinting his eyes Intoning a look of self-righteous surprise -Or have I simply misread the signs And all the misgivings are in my own mind..? It isn’t as though I’m American Or pledge allegience to the Flag, Its just, […]
