Though old hack Donald lost the farm,
Residuals galore still wreak harm;
Militants drunk with violent means
Empower thuggish Congress memes.
Not bad enough: rank denialism:
The latest f+ck-you: stark nihilism;
The uprising at the Capitol,
Mere kickoff to realms diabolical.
While unteachables are trapped in thrall
Saudis funnel Trump a mighty haul;
Immune to fact and evidence,
The cult of Trump salutes obstinance.
Past time to charge Inciter-in-chief,
Treasonous, murderous, career thief;
Indictments tho won’t end the fray,
The fallout ignites a squeeze play.
If Trump’s not charged and tried,
Not just Never Trumpers will be fried;
Yet when the crime boss gets indicted,
His avenging troops will be ignited.
Now all elections suffer this fate –
Sore losers resort to jackbooted hate?
After all, there’s no fool’s paradise,
Unless enough fools gulp bad advice
The future augurs permanent strife,
Not even ending with Trump’s life;
Ahead looms but conflicted choices
Absent majority, peaceful voices.
Is this choice by wisdom difficult –
Lawful justice vs. rank, chaotic cult?
If voters can’t see what’s at play
Batten down for the hell to pay.
