Standing Up to Trump’s Hair in a Mighty Wind

              “Let them hate me, so long as they fear me.”

Underneath his harvest of smart hair,
King Don, the chosen one,
The stable genius,
Tweets from Mar-a-Lago,
With no credible or trustworthy evidence,
To kill Qasem Soleimani,
Victor and subduer of ISIS and the Taliban,
Hero and beloved commander of Iran’s
Military forces in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq,
Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Yemen, and
Western Afghanistan.

The only member of Congress
Briefed, Lindsey Graham,
Senate Judiciary Committee chair,
Surrogate vice president,
Disciple and True Believer,
Champion of Manufacturing Consent,
And co-author of Making Fascism Great Again,
Brags and celebrates
About their brilliant geopolitical chess move.

Lying in wait, the Iranians play a slow checkmate game.
What Trump, the smartest man in America,
Doesn’t grasp with his hole in one trophy
Is that he’s been trumped.
Without realizing it, the God-ordained monarch
Has united Shia Muslim countries in the Middle East.

Now, the wannabe racist redeemer
Has set back any possibility
For peace, forever.
