Unreality Showdown on the Border

by Orel Protopopescu

Trump stormed out of a meeting
with Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
He’d staged this fleeting fit of pique,
according to a rumor.

In truth, his phantom tantrum
was as phony as his tan,
as fake as the emergency
he made because he can.

His disorder on the border?
That’s a clinically clear sign
that Hocus POTUS, all pretense,
in truth is borderline.
