Forgive Me, Stevie Smith

by Julie Steiner

“Trump’s blog isn’t lighting up the internet”
NBC News

Nobody heard him, the dud man,
But still he lay dinning:
I was much farther ahead than you thought
And not raving but winning.

Poor chap, he always loved snarking
And now he’s banned
It must have been too covfefe for him his platform gave way,
They panned.

Oh, no no no, it was too covfefe always
(Still the dud one lay dinning)
I was much too far ahead all my life
And not raving but winning.
