Pencil Poke, No Joke

Trump plays pathetic playground politics,
depicts Adam Schiff with a pencil neck.
These pretty poor tricks,
an abuse of his position, 
calling names, sick power games,
profiting from insults, claims
twenty eight dollars each, to purchase,
in the presidential election race,
T shirts printed with Adam Schiff’s face,
a pencil neck and a clown’s red nose.
Even for you, this goes pretty low, shows
who’s really the clown round here. It’s quite clear.

‘The smallest, thinnest neck I have ever seen.’
Like, what the heck does that even mean?
You don’t know how to use a pencil, do ya?
Mean like a redneck, rough neck bully boy,
brass neck chancer.
You got some neck on ya, Mr President.
Apparently, ‘He is not a long ball hitter.’
Better by a long shot than being a bullshitter, 
pussy grabber, petty presumptuous fool.
Donald Trump, it’s just not cool.
