Poem: It’s Happened

Well I thought Halloween was over
but apparently not.
Donald Trump is now President Trump
and thank god I’m Irish.
The bigoted voters have spoken
and those who would sell
their fellow people
and their soul
for a packet of cornflakes
have joined forces with them.
A sad day for freedom and equality,
a sad day for goodness.
Tea and biscuits with Putin
I’m sure will be on the agenda,
sends a shiver down the spine.
But this is only a blip in the road,
blips can be overcome.
Goodness always wins out in the end,
it won’t always be a make America bad situation.
My sympathies to the normal thinking people
of America today.
But keep your heads up,
one blip in the road
doesn’t stop a whirlwind.
