DONALD TRUMP, POETIC MUSE

A quote from the article:

….Trump’s greatest contribution to the poetic arts is undoubtedly as muse. Since last summer, some two thousand user-generated poems about Trump have appeared on the seven-year-old Web site Hello Poetry, which attracts more than eight hundred thousand readers a month. It’s free to join Hello Poetry: you just have to submit a poem you’ve written. The topic is up to you. (There are also four hundred poems about Hillary Clinton.)

Here are two lines from “Dual Airbags” by “ConnectHook:”

  1. To the basest of the base:
    I speak to you tong in cheek,
    outliar among liars,
    As honest as the day is long,
    On the shortest day of the year.

    The Wild Joker,
    Donald Trump
