He’s All Shook Up

by Nicole Caruso Garcia

“Former President Donald Trump shared a strange post on social media
asking his followers if they think he resembles Elvis Presley.”
Business Insider

Trump thinks that Elvis Presley’s face
resembles (ha!) his own.
King wannabe, he’ll try ten times
to flush his golden throne.

I’d sooner vote for Elvis now;
go on, exhume The King.
We’ve seen Trump dance “Y.M.C.A.”;
Good Lord, don’t let him sing.

Impersonators do them both,
less kind to The Accused.
Yet jailhouse stripes, a sad hotel—
I see why Trump’s confused.
