Trumped

by Kevin T. McEneaney
Wed Feb 8th, 2017

Ticking-and-tocking in the pendulum

Of historical turnings and tumult

What enfant terrible hosts elbow room

For aggrandizement, bluster, and insult?

Veracity is what he says it is.

Finance becomes final reality,

Even if it is the antithesis

Of justice, love, and Christianity.

 

Life is but a craving for jewels and gold,

Publicity and notoriety,

Especially the trappings of power.

The end result is easily foretold:

Scandal, ridicule, and buffoonery.

So what star now streaks toward Trump Tower?
