Success so often tweeted

“America’s business leaders have some advice for President Trump: Put down the Twitter cannon.

Sixty-seven percent of the nation’s chief financial officers surveyed by Duke University believe Trump can improve the business climate if he stops using Twitter, according to a survey of 350 CFOs released on Wednesday.”

Success so often tweeted
Is not success at all
To understand defeated
Just read between the scrawl

It’s known as social media
Mere rhetoric, at best –
Like trumpeter who plays off key
Should give his breath a rest!

As we, defeated, sighing
In this forgotten place —
Hold so little hope in hand
For self-obsession’s face.
