Weekly poem on Trump Presidency

 

JENNIFER L. KNOX

The Fat-shaming Polka
 

There’s too much of you.
It makes my dick small.

I am a trapped raccoon man!

Women in my sexual fantasies
are often gagged and hooded,

their heads are separated
from their bodies by sheets of plywood!

I don’t know your new words.
I hate all new words.

I’m scared of new words and mirrors
because they contain black dildos.

Several light bulbs in the world
have burned out.

They screw me in!
Ha! Ha! Ha!

I see that your children are quite fond of you.
Mine will not speak to me!

Can’t you do something
to get my dick hard?
It’s hard to get my dick hard!

The doctor says I got a prostate
as big as a head of cabbage!
