Singular....Truth - Once....Said......In Jest - Poem by James B. Earley

Author's note:
'I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters.'
~ Donald Trump - Iowa campaign rally,23 January 2016

The man's 'only' truth
'Twas...said in jest
....And inasmuch
A character test

...On whose....merits
The case thus rest
...His singular.....truth
Those words confess

Perhaps he's cursed
Perhaps he's blessed
....Perhaps....a bit
Mentally stressed

Yet clinging followers
.....At his....behest
Against their own interest
.....Acquiesce

Strange that base
...Strange the man
Half the population
....Indeed...it's scanned

Supports his 'truth'
....Once...said in jest
A Nation cursed? ? ? ? ?
A Nation blessed?

Our souls...at-large...
This character test
....On......such merits
The case thus rest
*
*
....A 'singular' truth - once said......in jest
