Nothing's changed in his thinking

A nation wakes up to a brand new day,
Pulled the lever to make shit go away
 
But we look around and what do we see?
The same old nightmare for you and me
 
If anything, the shit's even deeper,
Dragged down by the fricking Grim Reaper
 
Of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue fame,
Who's playing us with his narcissist game 
 
 
Delusion stands tall on legs made of dreams
There is no bad and nothing as it seems
 
How do you reach a man who refuses reason,
Who is set in stone and laughs away treason?
 
We sent our ballot message loud and clear,
But he doesn't hear our shouting, shit-o-dear!

How long can he really hold out? To quote Crowded House,"Don't let them win."

Not forever, unless the military expert is right and he's planning to use the military to stay in power, which has been my worry all along, but I don't want to sound crazy--but to hear a military general say that...
