A Muslim Ban's.....Redemptive Values....Perhaps

...Difficult though it is
Working as hard as I can
Toward finding redeeming values
....In such a despicable man

Pondering...the enormity
....Of the task that I take
Before my eyes...to my surprise
A spiritual awakening...for goodness sake

Illuminating my thinking
While wondering aloud
'This banning of Muslims'
...'Tis...exorcising the cloud

Consider...our 'Despicable One'
.....Now taking the heat
Had he lived way back then
....Before Twitter and tweets

There never would have been
...Ever...upon American land
The existence of Slavery
...Per....his 'Muslim Ban'

Life.....ofttimes a juggernaut......
Were that juggernaut a somersault
Not having lived life when he ought
Therefore...'Slavery'...not his fault

.....Difficult though it was
Trying as hard as I could
....Within the 'Despicable One'
Perhaps a modicum of good

...Took a bit of imagination
So it's sort of a stretch
......Anything is possible
Allowing one's mindset fetch

.....As.....a course of possibility
Fate's exorcising plan
...Slavery....non-existent
Were there....a Muslim Ban

Thinking the Slaves perhaps Muslims
......Thus...the Muslim Ban
Makes a whole lot of sense
.....I'm still trying....as hard....as...I....can
