Not again

Looks like it’s back to lair of the beast,

Embodies the worst traits, at the very least

 

Scourge of humanity refused to concede

That he’s less than zero, a pathological need

 

To be the center of all like a boy in third grade

They say he’ll announce a run later on today

 

I refuse to watch as he yanks people’s chain

Mankind is the Able while he plays the Cain

 

His damage still reverberates around the nation

Unnatural force of nature, give us a vacation

 

From ignorant bloviations and destructive ways

If we elect him again blame these surreal days

 

If we’re that stupid, the land of the eagle is through

Just what redeeming qualities some see in you,

 

King Donny, I don’t get, see, sympathize, or understand

This love and devotion to a truly despicable man.

I should think it prudent to blame policy decisions on whomever CURRENTLY holds office and not prospective candidates. I remember the same reiterated fear-mongering his first campaign (oh my god but if he wins there will be nuclear war! Even I believed it.) Well, now we know what happens no matter who takes power - people will continue to suffer all over the world due to the quixotic and hubristic actions of the US. Ultimately, it won't matter who "wins" - the oligarchy will be the only winners. And a few bribees. If you're covetous! What's the difference between a Republican and a Democrat? The speed at which their knee hits the floor when a donor enters the room. And that is the fundamental systemic problem which stymies our culture's political discourse and peoples' general comprehension of the real status quo, lending most of us to take at face value what is suggested in the media. See Jung on collective psychosis for a thorough explanation of how we as a society tended towards mass delusion since at least the middle of the nineteenth century. Hope you appreciate my comment as constructive input and of course as a personal opinion having been made with the best possible intentions. Good luck out there.
