Let Us Prey

by Stephen Gold

“Trump is selling ‘God Bless the USA’ Bibles for $59.99 as he faces mounting legal bills”

The Genesis of Donald’s woes
Are Numbers quite untrue,
And lo, behold more tacky Acts
To pay the bills now due.

Good Judges hope his Exodus
Will not be long delayed,
And that the “truth” he peddles
Will repel us, not persuade.

Our politicians nowadays
Are little more than slumming.
O Lord, we pray,
Show us the way
To stop this Second Coming.
