For those whose views may differ from his own,
he’ll cast aspersions on their intellects.
No argument one makes is ever shown
consideration. Never circumspect,
he digs his heels in deeper, hides his head
in ignorance, ignoring ever more
accepted truths for fantasy instead,
while bragging he will make our country soar.
He doesn’t shun adhominem attacks
and even one’s appearance is fair game.
He voices his opinions like they’re facts
and always knows exactly whom to blame
for all the ills that plague the nation now.
And he alone can fix them all, somehow.
