'Hey, you have a nice day!'

is what I know I should say,

 

but sometimes, it's so damn hard

when others play the respect card.

 

If I had any respect for the man, I could,

but don't you think if I had any, I would?

 

Truth is, I've never been so damn bereft,

he's the orange one who resorted to theft;

 

theft of common decency, theft of hope,

theft of common sense; he's the king of 'nope!'

 

If I had a 'slap' button, I'd have worn

that puppy out, in the new age of 'gullible born'

 

Otherwise-smart people took the bait,

hook, line, and stinker, and now our fate

 

is out of our hands, and into the hands

of a carnival barker, the world's only 71/15 man.
