Donald Trump, Our Great Compassionate Dear Leader

As an elderly man falls
In front of him
During a charity dinner event
Hitting his head bleeding out

Quote the MAGA Donald Trump our future dear leader

“It is disgusting. I mean the guy was bleeding
all over the nice marble floor”

Donald Trump the self-proclaimed
saviour of the nation
Could not be bothered to lift a finger

“Thank God for the marines who took out the garbage
But they left a mess on the nice marble floor
And ruined their nice uniforms”
and disrupted a fine dinner

Did he call the grieving family the next day
Of course not
Quote the Great Leader, the Donald
“I forgot to call." That is not his thing at all

And still, I wonder
How such a disgusting excuse
For a human being became
The leader of the greatest nation
On earth

And what it means for the future
Is it proof that we are doomed
That America is in the final stage
Of terminal decline?

Or will Americans take
out the garbage
From the white house?
