Prevarications on a Theme

by Edmund Conti

Here lies Donald Trump
All over the place
Campaigning on the stump
On TV in your face.

The lies of Donald Trump
Are they little? Are they white?
They’re big, they’re black, go bump
In the middle of the night.

Here lies Donald Trump
Who’s fallen far from grace
Behold that graceless lump
In his final West Wing place.
