With Hullabaloo22:

 

Someone Once Said...

 

Someone once said...'If you love America,

you wouldn't criticize the President.'

 

It's BECAUSE I love America that I have to,

with all the hatred and bigotry he's come to represent

 

Someone once tried a weak defence

of his actions, but there isn't one,

 

he's the ignorant, racist underbelly

of the worst of humanity, and before he's done,

 

he'll tear down the walls of human dignity,

and replace them with 'me, me, me'

 

It’s not just a case of one single flaw,

there are far many more that I see.

 

He’s racking up enemies, right, left and center,

won’t listen to another ones view

 

but just blunders on like that china shop bull,

when really he has not a clue.

 

Friends and allies are putting a distance

from the tweets that just fly from his phone;

 

leaving the country in an unstable state,

America out on its own.
