The Elephant In The Room

Poem by John Sensele

The elephant in the room
Tweets tonnes of gloom
Belittling dissenters
Satirizing inventors
Berating climate change
Unleashing on rivals revenge
If perchance they stick it out their necks
Labelling congressmen snakes
So long as they contemplate impeachment
Which in his view is anathema to the enrichment
His political pursuits require
Including getting spies for hire
To dig up salacious stories on opponents
If controversies electrify exponents
To lubricate election success
No matter how much excess
Sordid stuff he sticks
On political rivals he ticks
Off as small fry
Weepers who cry
When truth metamorphoses into his acquittal
From all charges demagogues in the capital
Conspire into the horror hoax
The ostrich can coax
From senators too petrified
To raise an objection horrified
Given his power to king make
Or shake Washington in an earthquake
His tweets tantalize
When plies of lies galvanize
Into figments of the imagination
That catalyze so much consternation in his nation.
