Poems of the Week


by Dan Campion

“The President does read and he also consumes intelligence verbally.”
The President’s Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany

Well, what’s Don reading, if not words?
He chews on intel with his curds?
If he’s “the most informed” guy daily,
How come chaos rules him, Kayleigh?

Could you kindly let us know
Where what’s “consumed” from thence may go:
If not his brain, some lower parts
Less apt to ratchet up his smarts?

The world might seem less out of joint
If you could clarify this point:
What roils—top secrets, soup to nuts?—
The famous presidential guts.
