The Donald: An Inauguration Poem by Melania Trump

Playground Bully for the World,
Putin Puppet, Sender of Tweets,
Grabber of Pussies and the Nation’s Wall Builder;
Spiteful, nasty, lying,
Bearer of the Tiny Hands:

They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I have heard your lurid tales of predation enthralling the frat boys.

And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true I have seen the contractor stiffed and sue and settle to be stiffed again.

And they tell me you are easily distracted and my reply is: Thanks, you too! as I watch you snarl and snap at gold-star parents, beauty pageant contestants, disabled reporters and other losers.

And having answered so I turn once more to those who smirk at this my president, and I give them back the smirk and say to them:

Come and show me another demagogue with gilded head braying so proud to be alive and coarse and rich and cunning.

Tweeting malevolent curses amid the toil of piling lie on lie, here is a tall gold dog-whistler set vivid against the little sad critics;

Fierce as a lawyer with writs waving for libel, cunning as an immigrant pitted against the INS,

Barefaced,
Scheming,
Wreaking,
Ranting,
Building, bankrupting, rebuilding,

Under the cigar smoke, lust all over his mouth, laughing with capped teeth,
Under the terrible burden of privilege laughing as a one-percenter laughs,
Laughing even as an ignorant soldier laughs who has never fought a battle,
Bragging and laughing that under his Rolex is the pulse, and under his spray tan the heart of the people,

Laughing!

Laughing the spiteful, nasty, lying laughter of Wealth, alt-right, swearing, proud to be Playground Bully, Putin Puppet, Sender of Tweets, Grabber of Pussies and Wall Builder to the Nation.
