Today’s #TantrumTanka is a found poem, using the [con] man’s own words from a just-released interview with Time magazine. I read the whole transcript, and it’s amazing I could find two sentences together that made some sort of sense, despite their delusional claims.
“I guess I can’t be
doing so badly because
I’m president and
you’re not.” “I’m president and
you’re not.” — [“Doing so badly”!]

For the first 100 days of the Trumpet administration, this blog will feature a new poem of protest, by my own hand and by others. They will be polished gems, or rough cut drafts of rage, or in process pieces searching for peace. They may be haiku or tanka, limericks or lyrics, verses free or fettered. If you would like to submit to this endeavor, please send an email, with poem saved as a word document (.docx) to waxyandpoetic AT gmail DOT com. All rights remain with the author.
