That....Pompous.....Ass - In The Promised....Land - Poem by James B. Earley

I can't wrap my head around it
....Radically...don't understand....
Massive amount of folks claiming
...Trump's presence is indeed God's hand

Wondering about the process
Thinking...methodology through...
Where in hell is Heaven's theology
....If just a wee bit...of this stuff...is true

After a lifetime's indoctrination....
Obviously I've suffered for naught
Throughout a long childhood of Sundays
....All....the varied bullshit...I bought

Only..to have masses...claiming...
Trump's presence is in fact God's hand
.....I can't wrap....my head...around it
His pompous ass in the Promised Land
*
*.....Just can't wrap....my head...around it
That....pompous ass...in the Promised...Land
