A Poem About President Donald Trump

A Poem About President Donald Trump

The New Colossus

Well, here he is, America:
Your bright-eyed boy,
your bad seed, your freak child,
the vulgar mirror of your worst self
spawned between the legs
of your bigotry and greed.
USA! USA!
He strides the land
like a marble dumb colossus,
his gaze is blank, 
he's pitiless as sun,
his ignorance--passionate, intense.
USA! USA!
Your foul-mouthed, kick-ass wonder child,
promises to make you great again,
wall out the toxic foreign born,
refine like Bessemer, the nation's dross,
throw out the tempest-tossed.
USA! USA!
He bears your genes, America.
Master of slaves, Assassin of the native born,
Meddler of the nations. - He'll do you proud. 
Land of the free - he'll keep away the teeming masses.
Home of the brave - he'll execute the office,
preserve, protect and defend to the best of his ability

the sacred color of your founding fathers' skin.
