Our POTUS in a Time of Plague

As scientists studied and scholars debated,
the course of our nation has been confiscated
by someone elected to counsel and guide us
who instead has chosen to confuse and chide us.

His grasp of the matter is less than meticulous,
therefore his statements are rather ridiculous.
His words contradictory, coming together
unfettered by wisdom, with nary a tether.

The palm-reader’s advice and crystal ball’s scry,
and what the astrologer sees in the sky
might deliver more guidance than this crazy guy
with one hand on his club, the other in the pie.

He surveys the landscape, concocting more lore
as he swings back his five iron, calling out “Fore!”
A reality star, but alas, little more—
at the next election, let’s show him the door!

Prompt words today are scry, meticulous, together, confiscate and landscape.

    I hope you will get your wish for a wise, tactful and personable and sensible leader next time. But the vote for a suitable replacement seems very scattered at this point. When I read so much “Down with Trump!” and no corresponding “Up with —” I wonder if you all fear there will be no one better?

    True words Judy, I’m not really from United States but I do see the speeches, the things he do, it’s like he doesn’t know about anything and hardly gets things done right.
