Melania’s Revenge

As he descends the air stairs, his waving hand waving,
his wife walks beside him as though she is braving
the air that’s around her. She seems to be craving
release from a torment, but she is behaving
because of a settlement scored when he won—
more money for her and more for her son.

But they can’t make her smile a believable smile—
one that masks her boredom and covers her bile.
His hand swatted away, she walks on her own
due to numerous deeds for which he must atone.
The hole in her soul must be so hard to fill,
for living with a jerk is the bitterest pill.

Even she has her pride. It’s an act of sedition
expressing her angst for four years of perdition—
a vehement act that expresses her pride
that though docile outside, she’s a rebel inside.
Some say she’s a dreamer, as though in the dreaming
she escapes a life over which she’d be screaming

if she really cared —but she doesn’t, you know.
If it weren’t for the valium and all of that dough—
she’d no doubt go crazy. Stark raving mad,
over having to spend her whole life with this cad,
but the latest new fashions and a life on the lazy
make up for a husband certifiably crazy!

And as for the people who make her life hell?
She’ll just crook her pinkie and ring her small bell
and tell them to rip out the damnable roses
and then flaunt her power in all of their noses,
by creating a garden—a dull boring park
that will prove that Melania’s at last left her mark.

    It’s my theory that her staying with him is more a function of his having absolutely no money to pay out in a settlement. He’s hoping, as is she, that he will somehow score big during a second + term. I’d have to see decades worth of tax statements to believe he has two nickels to rub together.

      Yes.. she appears to be the coldest and unhappiest of people. Odd that both she and her son have been less in the news than any other presidential family in remembrance. Probably because he does one shocking thing after another and leaves no room for other news.

    Well done, and I felt exactly the same way, even predicting that she would be gone to live a good life elsewhere within six months after we are finally rid of him.

    But then I read the book “Melania and Me” by Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, which painted a picture of a much more HARD person than I thought. So now I do not know where Stephanie’s poison pin ends and Melania’s greed starts. But I am putting money on her departure, possibly to a mansion somewhere to raise that boy in peace….She has already taken care of her parents. But what do I know~?
