Poems of the Week


by Nora Jay

Donald Trump once described Mitch McConnell as his ‘ace in the hole’ …
in a foreword to [McConnell’s] autobiography …
[But] speaking to the Washington Post … Trump said he told McConnell:
“‘Why don’t you write it for me and I’ll put it in, Mitch?’ Because that’s the way life works.”
The Guardian

A blurb by TRUMP! You made your pitch;
I classed it with the perks
You earned when Garland hit the ditch;
But those were different circs,

And non-self-praise is something which
I grudge to two-faced jerks;
So now I say you wrote it, Mitch,
’Cause that’s how my life works.
