The Dwendling Regime- Satire Poetry

Updated on April 8, 2018
always exploring profile image

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Please people vote for goodness sake!

How much longer are we going to hide our crimson faces in shame?

At the mere mention of his name

Belligerent, ignorant a real McCoy disgrace

The man ruling our white house with his smirking face

Lies, lies how much more can we tolerate?

If it was a demo we'd already be locked up behind that wired prison gate

The world is laughing at our thoughtless choice

now the voters long for their once proud voice

His buddy Putin is laughing all the way to his bank

Trump tower in Russia while our currency is headed for the tank

Soon we'll be spending the ruble instead of our dollar

The thought of changing our dollar is hard to swallow

The people he chose to lead his regime

A bunch of crooks like a grinding machine

" We asked for it " you say

Shamefully voting for a man who would rather play

Hookers, starlets, bunny girls anyone he chooses

He denies all the charges, yet the tapes prove it and he loses

Come November we can rectify our hopeful mistake

Go out and vote people for goodness sake!

Then hold our heads high, knowing we rid our white house of a poisonous snake.

Post note- If in November we elect people who will take away his power, then come 2020 we get back on track and elect a person who loves this country!!!

      Hello Shy. I am so sorry for this delay. I have been so busy. My son Jackie has developed cancer in his lung and back. He had a small skin cancer on his back about 2-3 years, they removed it and said they got it all, well they didn't and it metastasized to the right lung and back. They are trying a new drug, infusing it every 3 weeks. I am so worried. Please have all our cyber family pray for healing. I haven't forgotten you, and I hope to be back writing when this all passes.

      Ruby, Ruby my gem of a friend

      I’ve missed you so much

      I kept hoping you would stay in touch

      Then I saw a comment you made

      I went to your profile to find a hub

      Where you are calling the spade a spade

      My thoughts: how apropos

      Ruby you know more than most folks know

      And there is so much more that don’t show

      Maybe someday he will get his just deserts

      And someone will hit him where it hurts

      ~ ~ ~ ~

      Blessings and hugs my dear friend.

      P.S. the last election should be overturned!!!

      Hello Verlie, so nice to meet you. Yes the frustration is building daily. We never know what's coming next. The thought of building a fence and dropping bombs seems to excite his ego. He is a true narcissist. I see you are from Canada, my husband was born in Fisherville Canada. He came to the US when he was seventeen to enter Concordia Teachers university in River Forest Il. Thank you for reading and leaving a nice comment.

      What a shout Ms Ruby. Not a Trump supporter I take it? :) I was sure surprised when he got elected, I can feel your frustration in this piece. It's all a bit bizarre, what's going on at the moment. I keep wondering if we're all going to die, not a good feeling.

      Hello Manatita. You set on the fence, NEVER---- To live in this world, one has to be aware. I remember the first time I voted, I was married and had my son Jackie. Two priests came to my door and asked me if I was old enough to vote, of course that won me over! They asked me to vote for John Kennedy and I did. I don't think I've ever missed voting from that time on. I look forward to your poetry. Cheers...

      Guru never encouraged sitting on the fence. I was once an American Resident. Don't know what I am now. Still, the power of the White House machinery finds me every week via email. It is I who am the ghost. Ha ha. More seriously, yes we all have or have had ghosts. Read my last poem. Right now it is but I will post another very soon. Peace.

      First, believe in re-incarnation (chuckle), then you can invoke some of the Founding Fathers: Jefferson, Washington, Emerson, Lincoln ... Dickinson to advise ... ok, I've gone too far.

      Now about your lyrics and rhyming scheme, I absolutely loved it. You done well, my lady, as they say. Must be Love! Love you, Ruby or Mrs Richert, right? Peace.

      I know you are correct about the low count of voters, but surely they see the man by now and are as ashamed as we are. I read that only 18 % if Il. voters bothered to vote the last off season, that's why Trump and his kind are ruling now. All we can do is HOPE..

Hopefully the people who voted for him will see the true man and rethink their vote and vote him out of office. ( If he's still a resident of the WH? ) thank you for a thoughtful comment..

      Hello Shy. It felt good writing about a man who cares nothing about America, he's with the money and people still think he cares about them. Hopefully his power will be removed when America votes capable people in congress and the senate. Thanks my political friend...

      Huge election coming up this November. If ever we needed a record turnout of voters, now is the time. One thing I know for sure: The Left turns out in greater numbers than the Right when there is a motivating factor...and Trump is indeed a motivating factor.

      Hello Ruby - What a wonderful piece of writing. You squarely hit the nail on the head with this. America is strong, this is a temporary, yet damaging, episode. In eight months his power will be taken away.

      Spot on, Ruby...you go girl! :-) I am weary of watching the Kardashian-like reality show in the Oval Office, and of having our intelligence insulted every time he gives a speech or releases one of his myopic tweets.

      One thing we can count on with Mr. Trump: Whatever he says, we can early on the fact that 1) it isn't fact; 2) he hasn't done his homework, and 3) he will soon contradict himself.

      And I'm tired of the Bunny parade and the revelations of just how many times he cheated on his wife.

      The tax cuts are what the GOP has wanted for some time, so I don't give Trump much credit for them...although the pendulum will swing in the opposite direction once the price tag for such cuts has been fully realized.

      I won't get into the rollback of EPA regs...they are, in many instances, criminal.

      Anywho, enjoy your Sunday. Hugs.

      The debt is rising,

      Melania's legality a sham.

      Isn't it grand that Vladimir is invited here?? After he hacked the democrats??

      It's as if republicans like him more than they do us.

      Isn't that something.....

      I think someone's are trying to make us in their own image....just like they do with god.

      Keep up the good work, Ruby!

      To cleans our White House of it's prideful sins

      He told all who aided him,

      "you knew I was a snake when you let me in"

      Then he installed his brood and the White House became his din

      But, who has learned a lesson some would just let him right back in.

      Ruby, I'm with you. I want the circus clown out of the White House. But we have a problem. He handed America a tax reform plan that will likely be seen as a big deal. Because of that, even a majority of Democrats give him favorable marks. In my way of thinking, nothing erases his comments about women, nothing justifies his childish behavior during the primaries. I'll take the tax breaks because it's my money, but I look forward to the end of this man's term in the White House.

      Loved it reading and laughed at of course people who voted for such an incapable person to become President of United States.

      Your poetry is just wonderful and gives a new spirit to get this snake out of white house sooner in order to save whole world from his poisonous bites.
