Thursday Poetry Slam!: A Surreal Presidency

Now that I have started a theme with Haiku Monday, I thought to myself…  Self, we should add another theme for the week.  I present to you: Thursday Poetry Slam! or TPS!  I hope you enjoy my newest edition.  “Thank you” for reading!


We knew what we signed up for

But there were things they didn’t tell

They call it the politics of war

Then tell us war is hell


No calls, no letters, can’t say their name

The sacrifices made by all not just one

Instead of manning up you choose to blame

When your country called you chose to run


Any excuse to bring life to an end

Nuclear wars, no healthcare for the poor

Instead of my child how about yours you send

You’re no leader, more of an attention whore


We knew what we signed up for

How about you

Air Force, Army, Navy or Marine Corp

#45 has no idea not a clue
