Saturday Satire

This governing thing is hard


Waiting for the Friday news dump

When this tidbit came my way

Donald “I Can’t Lose” Trump

Had just lost his winning way


Donald-Trump-speaking-at-CPAC-2011-in-DC-800x430He promised all his voters

That the ACA was toast

Repeal would be so easy

That he’d do it at a coast


Don’t worry he persisted

Everyone will have great plans

Save billions he insisted

We might even cover tans


But as he set about the chore

Of drafting legislation

Winds of change came to the fore

While on a golf vacation


Seemed the voters didn’t like

Repeal and replace later

So much so that it found the spike

Dropped like a hot potater


So he turned to Speaker Ryan

Told him time to get this done

And we know Trump wasn’t lyin’

When he said healthcare’s no fun


Ryan wrote out every clause

And when they all were down

His legislation seemed to cause

A deafening bad sound


Seems repeal was only there

To mollify Trump’s masses

What Ryan crafted with most care

Was cutting high-end taxes


In spite of all the bad press

Donald threw his lot with Paul’s

They knew it was a hot mess

But they started making calls


Trump rolled out all his winning ploys

His cajoling and his threats

He’d tweeted reams of meaningless noise

As he tried to call in debts


He tweeted out an ultimatum

He threatened pols with harm

But in the end pols said ho-hum

Mr. Trump you’ve lost the farm
