Rethugs rip each other to shreds,
Exposing delinquent dunderheads;
Great crises loom for party backers— 
Who corrals berserk bushwhackers?

What winning political party, 
Faking it as hale and hearty—
Refuses to grow credible leaders
Shrewder than self-mocking tweeters?

What real, electable president
Succeeds by fouling his own tent?
What majority would back leaders
Cut down by envious interceders? 

Barely convicted, Trump’s a loser,
Foul-mouthed, inveterate abuser.
Will hugging insurgent outlaws
Waylay a slew of legal chainsaws?

And when convictions confirm abuses,
No DeSantis fills Trump’s loathsome shoes.
With lightning speed come doltish stumbles,
A Florida storm of unforced fumbles.

Nominate any right-wing candidates 
Who can commandeer enough states.
Will Haley, Pence, or the dismal bench
Avoid the crunch of the Biden mensch?

So when top leaders are disgraced, 
What second-stringer takes their place?
What side-lined buffoon’s leverage
Conquers the Electoral College?

Can any real-world prospect boast, 
“I will dominate coast to coast?”  
What minority’s self-whittled size
Ever won the grand White House prize?

For over a decade, Robert S. Becker's independent, rebel-rousing essays on politics and culture analyze overall trends, history, implications, messaging and frameworks. He has been published widely, aside from Nation of Change and RSN, with extensive credits from OpEdNews (as senior editor), Alternet, Salon, Truthdig, Smirking Chimp, Dandelion Salad, Beyond Chron, and the SF Chronicle. Educated at Rutgers College, N.J. (B.A. English) and U.C. Berkeley (Ph.D. English), Becker left university teaching (Northwestern, then U. Chicago) for business, founding SOTA Industries, a top American high end audio company he ran from '80 to '92. From '92-02, he was an anti-gravel mining activist while doing marketing, business and writing consulting. Since then, he seeks out insight, even wit in the shadows, without ideology or righteousness across the current mayhem of American politics.
