The eyes of the world look, and wonder how this came to be,

they see an unqualified joke leading sea to shining sea.

 

I watch him on the world stage, and I simply cringe,

I don't see a president, I see only unhinged.

 

I see the new Mussolini, a strutting cock,

in love with himself and his power, who walks the walk

 

of the third world, who preens and shows off for the lens.

Who sees the word through only his eyes, and depends

 

on the advice of no one, not much more learned men,

which, unfortunately, is any man; with no sense of where we've been.

 

Yes the eyes of the world are upon us, and crying tears of scorn,

America lies bleeding; bruised, scared, and torn.
