Boneheadedness (a villanelle in the age of Truimpius)

Archaic assholes blow their noses
Reality’s in a free for all
There are no doves or bleeding roses

All hope begins to decompose
The Emperor’s tweet has made the call
Archaic assholes blow their noses

George Orwell tell politicos
To sell it to the wailing wall
There are no doves or bleeding roses

Confidants lay in the shadows
Treason they cry from the hall
Archaic assholes blow their noses

Science finds the hidden clone
Our DNA is Neanderthal
There are no doves or bleeding roses

History will soon foreclose
As we watch compassion fall
Archaic assholes blow their noses
There are no doves or bleeding roses

Last few words: 
Trying capture the crude madness of living in the age of Emperor Trumpius using an antique form.

The news has every soap opera beat like it owes us money, but the nausea on the big ship USA is getting unbearably contagious. Lets have a laugh as we crash
