U.S. Election Day Prayer

Yesterday I wrote this post and published it on facebook. Some of my friends don’t ue FB and asked me to post the poem on this blog. Please feel free to pass it on…

Thump, thump… thump, thump… thump-thump

Don’t you think its time to dump…

The oafish, uncouth lump…

The insufferable Donald Trump.

*

Americans… oh how we pray

You will send him completely away

For if he’s given a chance to stay

We will forever, pay and pay…

*

His vanity is The Wall.

Which demeans and hurts us all.

If voters don’t heed this call

The orange bully might not fall.

*

Climate change, health care, human rights…

In trouncing all this, MAGA delights.

He smiles when his Base snarls and fights

To ensure a win on Election Night.

*

To the whole world one thing is clear

Only US citizens can vote this year

If they don’t step up, we do fear

History will curse this horrible year…

*

In 2020, they’ll say hope died.

In part because Trump cheated and lied

And from our hands, he pulled and pried

Freedom… mankind’s dearest prize.
