“Repeal and replace” was his boast.
Diabetes or cancer? You’re toast.
It’s an unjust dessert,
For TrumpCare will hurt
The people who trusted him most.

To the people who trusted him most
( ’cause at rallies he’s such a fun host)
it is all bait and switch,
a self-serving pitch.
Will democracy give up the ghost?

Will democracy give up the ghost?
Will his followers, blindly engrossed
in his treacherous lies
pull the beam from their eyes
when he’s plundered from mountains to coast?
