His loyal subjects apparently lost their minds,

and looked for easy answers where there were none to find

 

He rose to power on a wave of bigot,

said he'd drain the swamp, but turned on the spigot

 

His empty declarations fooled many at first,

but as time went on, he proved to be the worst

 

No clue how to govern, was vindictive and sleazy,

In over his head, wearing a toga of easy

 

When the the citizens of the city started to rebel,

He lashed out, lied, and told them to go to Hell

 

Rome caught fire, and all he did was fiddle,

everything was extreme, nothing down the middle

 

A towering ego without the brain to match,

bragged about his fame, and grabbed him some snatch

 

The citizens of Rome soon had buyers remorse,

but by then it was much too late, of course

 

Everyone could see the truth, except The Kool-Aid Brigade,

They were blind to the dangers he posed, I'm afraid

 

Those who saw his dangers from the start,

were ridiculed, until Rome stated falling apart

 

But by then, Fullofshiticus's damage was done,

the people flipped him a big number one

 

Middle fingers were raised in a mocking salute,

but he just smirked, and gave their nuts the boot
