Trump and Pence

by Orel Protopopescu

(with apologies to Robert Frost)

“Pence hits the campaign trail for Trump—and himself”

Some say the world will end with Trump.
Some say with Pence.
From studies of the vacuum pump,
I hold with those who favor Trump.
But if more voters lose all sense
and waste their precious votes again
(from bigotry or ignorance)
on Trump, then Pence,
what’s our defense?
