Confessions of a besieged Trumper

Only patriots with righteous causes/ Defy bad laws, like daring outlaws.

Will stupid leftists ever behold
Why MAGA captures young and old?
Deadbeat libs troll our sainted hero,
But who’d make a better pharaoh?

Unshakable fans know far better— 
Bigly causes swamp the plate-setter;
The left guffaws at the “Trump cult”— 
Yet sad envy drives that cheap insult. 

Crackpot libs can’t match our grievances
Because they lack real allegiances;
Only patriots with righteous causes
Defy bad laws, like daring outlaws.

Instead of facts, we trust gut hunches 
To justify throwing our hard punches.
Though sometimes Trump does us diddle,  
His manic rants make the left piddle. 

True patriots prize the good old days
When life was never such a maze;
All neighbors looked just like us— 
Outsiders forced back of the bus.

Now “deplorables” are sprayed like bugs—  
Do 20 mugshots make us all foul thugs?
Our MAGA boasts only freedom-lovers,
More abuse makes us harder shovers. 

Sure, we don’t live on easy street,
But we always reload, never retreat.
Woke insults define our misery,
Thanks Biden, Barack and Hillary. 

That’s why we trust Trump above all,
His greatness voices outrage and gall;
Dashed MAGA dreams ride Trump coattails—
So we must swallow a few tall tales.

Promised retribution fits our plight,
Or fewer rights for the lily white.
What other fat cat worth a bundle
Confides in us like a trusted uncle? 

Each time libs make him a defendant,
We mark his sacrifices, unrepentant. 
Traitors demand Trump disqualified—   
Yet Jan. 6 was our greatest pride.

Our tough-guy hero uses stardom fame
To expose life as a nasty, willful game;
He makes us real Yanks feel superior, 
So we can rule over any inferior.

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.
