Painting: “At a Punky Reggae Party in 1976, Donald Trump Dreamed of Being an Old Man Ruining Everybody’s Happiness” 2016. Acrylic on canvas, 12 x 12"
I will write a sad song for you now.
Play it in the key of K for “know thy enemy”.
“Look what Trump has done to you.
Got you looking out the door
at black is bad and white is good
the roofer wears a pointy hood
as the banker did before
You’re fearing all the gentle
and the racist calls a race
children make you tremble
while antifa assemble
at a party coed place
Look what Trump has done to you
feeding you a polished bone
a billionaire molester
let your hate out from sequester
and mistrust your very own
Even mom’s a commi liberal
though she made you in a room
with some uninsured republican
teeny harbinger of doom
I don’t want these rhyming words
to bring some feeling to the fore
Trump just means that you’re a bigot
a segregationist rust spigot
pouring at the Walmart store.”
