Some Poetry To Mark Today's Inauguration

Years ago, I started my Sarcastic Haiku series. When Bush declared war on Iraq, I created my American Haiku version (kind of a series within a series).

Sarcastic Haiku 3: American Haiku

Fuck five-seven-five!
Americans make the rules.
U-S-A! U-S-A!

I made one when Bush was reelected.

Sarcastic Haiku 33: American Haiku 2

Fuck five-seven-five!
Sequels can be just as good.
Four more years! Four more years!

Now I have my first Sarcastic Haiku/American Haiku since the 2008 election.

American Haiku Presents: Donald Trump

Five-seven-five Wrong!
U.S. makes the best haiku.
Make America Great Again. Make America Great Again.
