WTF?



He speaks
the way electricity
short-circuits:
a scrambled stop-and-start
of incomplete phrases,
plucked at random.

Yet his henchmen 
eat up
every
incomprehensible
word.


for Mama Zen's WTF? prompt at Real Toads : write something strange you saw this week in 60 words or less. I had just read the Time interview with an incoherent trump. Sort of like you'd expect on a closed ward somewhere.  Only took me 26 words. The sign really says it all.

  1. Perfect. I was thinking this earlier today while watching DT talk to Women. His press secretary is almost as bad. Wish I had written this. We had grown accustomed to an eloquent speaker.

  7. Thank you, Sherry. This from one not U.S. tells it like the world sees him, should see him to those who still believe. But, ... his henchmen are many.
    His stand on the Arts, to kill the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) funding assistance, reminds me of the ISIS troopers. Our good president Johnson got that started way back. Actually most everything from the opposite party (Dems) has to go per trump's standards.

  9. Every time he speaks, a perfectly good adjective dies.

  10. Haha! I suppose one shouldn't laugh but cry. However, the poem and commentary cracks me up.

  11. Is this who I think it is? Couldn't agree more!

  12. Every time he tweets
    his minions squeak
    and speech is less
    than results a mess....

    I have my own theory who you can mean.

  13. Your poems reflect my feelings about the situation. It's almost hard to understand how so many people in the world are so willingly gullible.

  14. Astute and cute! Those of us who see him for what he is are appalled that he has fooled so many. Sad times.
