Captain Trump

by Bruce Bennett

“Tell the Democrat Governors that ‘Mutiny
On The Bounty’ was one of my all time
favorite movies.”
—Donald J. Trump

“Your Governors are mutineers!”
cries Trump, our Captain Bligh.
“But I am here to quell your fears.
None runs a ship like I.”

And so he struts and crows and preens
through winds that roar and rend.
We do not doubt he saw those scenes,
but doubt he saw the end.
