The Ides of March...

Be wary of the Ides of March
So said the Speaker of the House
Your attitude is atrocious
They're calling you a louse

A little late, said the President
The Ides have already passed
But his party got together
To try and save his ass

His party held him with open arms
They didn't bring their knives
And so he used his dubious charms
To play with people's lives

It's not my fault, it's all theirs
He said again and again
He didn't listen to bewares
He wouldn't take the blame

So they grabbed him by the throat
Slapped him up real good
Said, "We're on a sinking boat
Unless you listen like you should"

We wish that you could get it
Through your stupid head
If you keep spouting wit
Your chance is good as dead

So now he's acting Presidential
Taking their advice
Counting on eventual
Things will be all nice

I like your satire on the pres. and that damnable party system. Why can't we have more than two parties in control of our lives? I'm as sick of the Rep. party as I'm of the Dem. party.
About the Pres.? Friends, Romans, Countrymen, I come to bury Caesar Trump, not to praise him. (It feels good to air one's feelings on this stinking mess.) Well--back to writing poetry. Thanks for posting your poem. Jerry

No matter how much I try to resist, it just comes out. I guess I can't stand the BS of his person. I have noticed lately that he is starting to take notice of his experts and the people who are really running the country. I know I'll catch flak for it, but I just don't care. Sorry, not sorry; to all those Trumpers out there. ~ Geezer.

A well thought through witty pop at a fuckin eeejut !!
I don't believe for one second that he is actually in charge of his bowel movements let alone America.

(but then again we got a Boris)


I'm glad my intent was crystal clear. It makes it all worth the flak I get for writing this stuff. I can't help it, sometimes my fingers just run off at the mouth! LoL
