Resistance always!

I can hear you out there down the invisible wires,

grumbling and complaining about me calling him a liar.

 

I don't even have to name him, and there's little doubt

Our liar-in-chief is who I'm talking about.

 

Believe me, I'd love to find anything else to scribe

about; I'm open to dialog, in the form of a bribe,

 

but, since I see no money, I just keep riding that horse,

the one that consumes my every waking thought, of course.

 

I'm surprised I don't dream about The Big Dump,

because the truth is nothing but a speed bump

 

on the Highway of Past Truths, he blows through every red light,

careening drunkenly through every town--better get used to the sight

 

Of repeated rants!
