Keeps on hammering

Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole,

From another place, a heartless heart without a soul

 

Hammering, hammering, bend it to his will,

never mind it's the wrong shape, he's high on the thrill

 

Elected by the minority; acting like it was the majority

Ramming through the new dark ages seem to be his priority

 

With criminal reckless abandon he pushes without a thought,

the most hated will be his only legacy, Abe Lincoln he is not

 

A man without a country, he just keeps pounding with the hammer

a sad, pathetic Pied Piper, without a coherent thought, or proper grammar

 

The president of regression, of a past gone for good reason,

ruling over a country, blindly charging ahead, good manners on the run

 

He's making crude okay, rending huge divisions, oblivious to it all,

His kingly agenda will see our once-proud democracy fall

 

And the con man saw his golden opportunity and took it,

determined to make his misshaped and self-serving peg fit
