Poetry: “Trumped”

I’ll give you a hint: not a fan.

I wrote “Trumped” in 2015, several months before Trump became president. I didn’t want to believe that he would actually get elected, but my gut said…yup, that’ll be a sad day in America. Understatement, much? If he’s your president, that’s your business, but I don’t support him. To each her own.

Empowered enemy

Elliptical eloquence

Efferent elocution

Erroneous election


Unsavory riddle

Unsolvable puzzle

Uneducated guess

Unresolved mess


Optical illusion

Operatic confusion

Operative effusion

Opulent collusion


Erudite ignorance

Eradicated innocence

Filtered bewilderment


We feel

Guileless grief

Absent relief

Misplaced belief



Weapons release

Strap on the piece

Wars unleash

Elusive peace
