The Pretender

The pretender walked down the stairwell
With his famous face - almost tan
His long red tie making its statement
Then those dreadful words were uttered
Leading to a crucial moment in time
Instantly mindful of an impending disaster
Forthwith a moment of angst and unease
A time to fear the cost of civility
And to witness the loss of gains
Many things will slip backwards
And other doings will be eliminated
Soon to be in the midst of threats and spite
And days of hate and bigotry
Still - time won't change the pretender
And while waiting for an ending
New beginnings are waiting also
Thus we must not allow the liar in chief
To change the very best in us

2. Great last line too--

We need to come out of this terrible era with our values and morals intact... if only so that he won't have had such a big impact.
