Inauguration Day

Regardless from behind the lectern,

He declares we will be great again


With a sharp tongue and bold promises,

he assures us he had the answers

and outlines a “wonderful” grand plan.


Regardless of treasured tradition,

he ignores intelligent pundits.

and ridicules the fourth estate.


Through his own admission of greatness,

and self-promotion of his success

he twitters his way into our lives


Regardless with abandon he demeans

the marginalized and handicapped,

and resonates with the “exurban”.


He cajoles we should follow his lead,

He demands we see with his eyes:

the golden rule is; what’s in it for me.


Regardless from his ivory tower,

declaration trumps diplomacy.
