Fool: Me, Twice

by Steven Kent

“Bowers backs Trump despite denouncing ‘big lie’”
The Guardian

He’s dangerous and can’t be trusted—
Planned a coup but that was busted,
Then tried to sic his mob on Vice,
Who could have died (which wasn’t nice).

Just find me votes, he kept on pleading
Back before the cops were bleeding,
The handiwork of “patriots”
Who I consider cultish nuts.

I’m glad to speak to this committee.
What we witnessed wasn’t pretty;
I pray we never face again
This kind of threat from evil men.

But though I think the Constitution
Really is our best solution,
I’ll back my party even more—
I’m voting Trump in ‘24!
