Who tolt us ‘bout an unknown 19th of June—
who the TikTok teens cast as buffoon? Who?
Who say Douglass alive and doin’ good work—
who turn the War House into a grifter perk? Who?
Who be grabbin’ pussy and standin’ they ground—
who think they farts have symphonic sound? Who?
Who say Mexicans are murderers and rapists—
who pay Stormy to go away like escapists? Who?
Who say embassy-butchering journalists is cool
who make conflict of interests the rule? Who?
Who say get bottles of bleach for COVID-19
who say warp speed—Poof—safe vaccine? Who?
Who hiply toss paper towels after hurricanes—
who sell the bloody Saudis more warplanes? Who?
Who had the mos’ biggest war parade?
Who throw the mos’ orange shade?
Who have the biggest, best warplanes?
Who use toothpicks fo’ picking brains?
Who have the biggest, most infected rally?
Who treat coronavirus like Lt. Calley?
Who have the most and best troops?
Who briefings be like daily poops?
Who the best at not following directions?
Who have the most COVID infections?
Who make the most take their last breaths?
Who have the most COVID-19 DEATHS? WHO?
