Why do I hate thee? Where should I start?

I hate you because you seem intent on tearing apart,

 

not creating--I hate you because you make me feel

It's elementary school, a Back To The Future Biff The Bully deal

 

I hate when you try to muddy the waters of what is true

and I hate that there's so many who believe only you

 

I hate when you see immigrants as someone to fear

I hate when I look at you, I see Mussolini in the rear view mirror

 

I hate when I see your shifty, beady, scowling eyes,

which is every minute; I hate the type of guys

 

you admire, like Putin, that if any other person

on the face of America looked up to, they'd be done,

 

but not you, and your supporters simply ignore

your countless flaws, as a president, a man, your core

 

is rotten, and your infection had spread to some,

but are you the disease, or just the symptom?

 

I tend to subscribe to the latter,

you're just a symptom of all that's the matter
