Wake Up Call


Wake Up Call

What a yarn you can spin

I don’t know where to begin

Cursory words spoken

Your dialogue broken

Audience shrinking

It is not wishful thinking

If we object to your prescription

You have a conniption

You manage to appall

And persecute all

How can you manage world affairs?

When you clearly have nothing upstairs

Your being in charge

We wish to discharge

It is coming to a head

All those things that you said

The day of reckoning is close

You will not like your dose

    Well done, Christine. Unfortunately, I think there is still some life in him yet. No checks and balances. They will protect their man for as long as possible. I’m just a little gloomy today.
