The Orange wants

Keep them at sea and

Away from here

That’s what The Orange wants

Lower numbers, he holds dear.

Whether they are safe

Or suffering, you know

The Orange doesn’t care

Must keep corona numbers low.

A Christian, we are told

A man of honor, his idiots say

But he’ll keep ill people

On the ship, not in sick bay.

From Asia to Europe

And now on our shore

The deadly virus spreads

POTUS, rotten to his core.

Oh, The Orange is a genius?

A brilliant man, he thrives?

Blessed with such wisdom

And five kids by three wives.


Do you know

Here, and then gone, in a second

A mere moment to influence

Do you know you succeeded?
