Do we really think they care? ...

Trump voters that is,
about shady Russian ties to dark oligarchs
& billion ruble deals,
conflicts of interest,
ties made in China,
family business entanglements?

 

day after day of golf,
Mar A Largo Winter White House hustle,
enormous Secret Service bills as the
Trumps are scattered here, there
and it seems everywhere,

 

dicey handshakes,
White Supremacists in the White House,
the American Constitution,
Legal niceties such as checks 
& balances,
day after day
lies about this,
& lies about that?

 

hypocrisies & shallow 
empty throw-aways
at the African American
Museum,
Sean 'Fool me two times' Spicer,
media bans,
EPA anti-science,
utterly insane
nuclear pronouncements?

 

a huge, very huge 
military budget,
some backtracking
on the wall,
word salad Muslim ban
justifications?

 

an overweight, ignorant
orange-faced hustler
just counting those
dollar bills as 
he rakes
them in?

 

Do we really think
they care?

 

I think not 
because well
first off 
at least now there isn't 
a black, Kenyan, Islamist 
Marxist running things,

 

we can all be so thankful 
for that,

 

& all the other stuff
just seems by the way
in comparison.

 

This poem is about: 
My country
