Democrats And Republicans - Poem by Eugene Levich

Demagogues and Reptiles
It seems she’s had her day.
Why doesn’t she just say—
And make way for someone
The people can trust?

The draft-dodger—
Announces that
He knows everything about
Running the Armed Forces—
And the crowds cheer!
You ever hear of anything so stupid?

And what a great genius he was
To make so much money
Except his papa was a real estate
Multi-millionaire who arranged
A 450 million dollar loan for Little
So the kid could buy himself a business
(Mayor Abe Beame was papa’s pal) .

When you start off a multi-millionaire,
It ain’t too hard to become a billionaire,
Despite Trumplestilskin’s many bankruptcies.
Still, he’s a business genius!
Just ask him!

    Aloha Eugene...

    Politically leaning writes are what conscience lends to those of US with a bit of common sense and an ability and motivation to research personalities and facts... something which is not included in any level of one's educational experience... How many of the beast, were referenced by Hamilton back in the day? Oh! , the all of US! Was he that smug, as to suggest, that a nation of beggars and thieves and never to be' would become a nation that would mature and truly lead humanity to the promised land? Such insight and wisdom had he! In a society of dumbed down clowns and out right murderers for profit... what would a human being with a conscious level of reasoning expect? Americant politics is theater of the macabre... nothing more than entertainment devised to promote a deadly slumber so the Crown can continue to hold sway over the little people and what chattel each may gather during their lifetimes of servitude to the same... I humbly thank you for this very concise and informative post... let US all consider what you have presented here in our deliberations as to the effect of having such a court jester become the next president... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two

    sad but true..
    politics is just what we could see through CNN yesterday night..
    And in Italy it's not better.. I would say that corruption, here, is a plague the US knew only in Al Capone times..

    Garibaldi... yeah, you're right.. not so 'many'!

    Perhaps it is man's nature to be corrupt. After all, how many men like Garibaldi has the world seen?
