Getting Old Isn't For The Faint of Heart

Even though it's getting closer to July the 4th
Ocean's still too cold for swimming up here in the North.
Toes turn blue, your ankles ache, and water past your knees
Means a wave is gonna cause your private parts to freeze.

Back when I was still a kid I didn't feel the cold;
I'd just run and dive right in but, now that I'm so old,
Run would be a stagger and my dive a belly flop
As the freezing cold Atlantic caused my heart to stop.

Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Political Scientists

I've got Poli Sci degrees (for all the good they do -
Not a field of study I would recommend to you...
There's not any money in it. Not a lot of jobs
Pondering the voting habits of the angry mobs.)

But, for all my "expertise" I'm simply at a loss,
Can't explain how Donald Trump remains the nation's boss.
Yes, I know the Russians meddled... That's not an excuse.
It's the GOP that's claimed this crazy, golden goose.

Clutching tightly while ignoring all the angry tweets,
Willing to embrace the loony just to grab the treats.
All the golden goodies they've been hoping for for years:
Tax cuts, slashing regulations for their wealthy peers.

That's the kind of politics I learned about in school
But, back then, I never dreamed Republicans could fool
Voters into acting against their best interests
And, had I predicted it, I would have flunked my tests.

 Claiming that our rookie President made a mistake,
Speaker Ryan says we ought to give the guy a break.
Why would someone clear a room if they were unaware
They were gonna cross a line? Republicans don't care?

Trump did not collude with Russia...  He's not smart enough.
He is just a bully who is bent on acting tough.
Not the "best negotiator" if he couldn't see
James Comey's reaction to a "pledge of loyalty."

Trump cannot control himself but that does not excuse
Politicians who think he's a tool that they can use.
I'm no longer blaming Donald Trump...  I fear he's ill.
I DO blame Republicans and hope that voters will.

The Clown In Chief

 Image result for trump is a narcissist

There are none so blind as those who still refuse to see
Donald Trump as President's a tragic comedy:
Tragedy because the situation isn't funny -
Clown in office who I wouldn't trust for love nor money. 

I don't think that Trump colluded, didn't - quite - obstruct.
I think he's a narcissist who's set to self-destruct.
He belongs, not in the White House, but a padded cell.
Let's just hope he doesn't take the country down as well.

Sincerest Apologies to The Mayor of London

I have reached a stage of such complete embarrassment 
At the thoughtless comments by the U.S. President
To the Mayor of London after terrorists attacked
That I cannot find the words...  I'm totally gobsmacked.

May I please apologize, to England and the world
For the stupid insults that my president just hurled.
Let me just assure you that he doesn't speak for me.
I send my condolences and this apology.

He is proving quite the credit to our family tree.

I Guess We Won't Always Have Paris

Trump just pulled us out of Paris...  Makes me wanna weep.
Stomach's churning and I'm having nightmares when I sleep.
Planet Earth's the only home the human race has got -
I'll be dead before the oceans rise...  My sons will not.

'though it's hard to narrow his disasters down to one
So far, this could be the worst thing Donald Trump has done.
Climate change is global. Now our country's walked away.
China's filled the role of leadership we used to play.

All the nations of the world and scientists agree
Global warming's happening.  Well, all except for three:
Syria and Nicaragua...  The United States.
Maybe we can lead the countries Mother Nature hates?
