Cry Uncle: A quatrain of first family shame

LBelans 12-28-2020

 

Privilege, power, quid pro quo

that’s how his daddy trained him

Threaten punish reprimand

that’s what has been ingrained in

 

the cruel exhausting vicious man

who learned the lessons well

I’ll give you this IF you comply

if not, go burn in hell

 

They did it to his older bro

who wouldn’t play the game

He suffered long and painfully

while conman suffered fame

 

His party did capitulate

surrendered to his grift

got judges placed on many courts

set democracy adrift

 

Masked and cloaked in full plain sight

with hatred in his veins

the loser’s staging quite the coup

won’t release the reigns

 

But come inauguration day

the palindrome of dates

we’ll send him packing with his clan

to Satan’s fiery gates.
