Evil Knievel ain't got nothing on this canyon jump,

this grand canyon created and exploited by Trump,

 

setting wife against husband, grown children against Mom or Dad.

To quote the bloated ego man himself, 'sad, very sad!'

 

Divisions, a widening gulf, a rending we may never recover from,

The ultimate disaster to one side, and a blessing for our country to some.

 

The crude mutterings of a man-child, or the ultimate wisdom, depends

on where you stand--there is no middle ground, no one pretends

 

to understand the other, and gather in the middle for a meeting of the minds,

no, I'm sitting here watching as the thread of civility unwinds.

 

The impossibly-distant bank of the other side is out of our reach,

I must ask everyone, what kind of lesson to our kids does this teach?
