Haiku for the Insurrection

President Lame Duck

Incited an ugly mob

And must be removed

Last summer I wrote a limerick in response to the clearing of Lafayette Square, when Donald Trump held up a Bible and glared at the cameras. And I truly believed that was rock bottom, for him and our country. But since then, he’s shown us over and over again that there really is no bottom with him.

Yesterday was an American tragedy. There is no other way to describe it. Trump has unleashed an evil on this land which may never be lifted. I pray that it will, but I don’t think my prayers will go very far. So instead I’m using words as a form of non-violent protest.

If only those crazed Trumpers had done the same thing yesterday….
