Thank You, Trump Voters
NEW YORK CITY –
Thank you, Trump voters, for foisting a joke on all of us.
While the Donald does not have a sense of humor
He does have a terrific sense of rumor.
Tweak him and he brays, he weeps, he cries for blood!
He believes he is winning, that he’s in,
Square peg in the Oval Office.
But wait, there is the recount, and
The matter of the popular vote.
Two million more ballots for Hill!
Fear not, Trumpets! The Donald will rant
On his Twitter account where he can wax
Bitter, for someone has once more gotten
His goat, that somehow millions of votes
Were cast against him illegally.
As for the evidence? What a question!
O ye of little faith! Pope Donald has spoken!
And his decree is all the reality you need!
Thank you, Trumpistas, for proving that
This indeed is the Land of Opportunity
And Opportunists, for ferreting out
The Kooks, the Krazies, and the Kakistocrats,
For throwing a light on the alt-right,
On Bannon the loose cannon who will
Make Amerika hate again!
But most of all a huge Thank You to
All my fellow Pinoys who chose the golden-haired
Boy: your spirit of sacrifice leaves me in awe,
Such humility and willingness to be trod
Upon for your skin tones. Masochism?
Please! Noble Christian martyrs! Ready to be
A feast for the beasts!
For so long denied they can now
Reclaim their pride of place,
Diminutive Tontos to the Lone Ranger,
The White Man’s Little Brown Brother!
