President Trump continues on his high-handed way
to alienate many people during his period of office.
A President without a clue,
On his high-handed way;
Who’s full of praise for cronies who,
He'll sack the coming day!
A monarch who tweets the inane,
Contemptuous of all;
Who's reign could well be on the wane,
To an impeachment fall.
There's Senate and Congressional,
A leader who's obsessional--
A Mafia-type Don.
And then there is another row,
That haunts the USA;
The Viet Nam War was then but now,
The Yemen of today. (1)
Arms contracts with the Saudis seem, (2)
To be worth more than lives;
The US war machine's regime, (3)
Is how God's nation thrives.
So folk in the 'democracies',
That make up all the West;
Just think of Trump’s hypocrisies,
And all those he’s oppressed.
(1) Both Britain and the US are selling weapons to Saudi Arabia
which are being used to kill thousands of civilians in the Yemen.
(2) Trump recently visited Saudi Arabia to sell $120m worth
of arms in exchange for the Saudis investing $200m in the US.
(3) America spends more on armaments than Russia, China and
all the other nations of the European Union put together. Its Air
Force uses between one third and half of all the world's jet fuel.
