Humpty-Trumpty sat on a street named Wall
Humpty-Trumpty saw the stock market fall
Humpty-Trumpty came up with a scheme
U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a Cabinet meeting
To be the best president ever, his ambitious dream.
He formally announced his grandiose aspirations
June 16, 2015 with myriad pretensions
From the tower he erected,
With an eye to be elected,
Trumpty regaled his plans for a great wall
To all U.S. citizens both big and small
From August to December Trumpty touted his agenda
With supporters and voters who thought he was splendid.
He touted all things they wanted to believe
While not a soul understood he had other things up his sleeve.
For the wall he’d make certain for Mexico to pay
But their presidente said, “No Way, Jose’!”
For his tax plan he said, “I’ll make this simple.”
If you make near nothing you won’t pay a pimple.
Otherwise, if you’re wealthy
You know, over 30 thou- something healthy
You’ll simply pay a mere 15%
And soon I will be the next president.
In New Hampshire he said “refugees could be Isis”
These Syrians could be “a 200,000 man” crisis
These tempest t’ost are a ploy, they’ll attack.
“It could be possible- so they’re going back.”
Pressure was on, the Dems and Hil asked for proof
From Trumpty’s doctor to see if his health was a spoof.
The letter looked forged. It was wordy and simplistic:
“Astonishingly excellent”, “physical strength and stamina extraordinary”
“If elected, I can state unequivocally,
Will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
By December that year Trumpty’s rallies had reached
A crescendo of chaos and all saneness was breeched.
They cried, “Lock her up!” as if that really mattered,
Then dragged protestors out with the peace fully shattered.
In 2016 the rallies got steadily worse
Trumpty’s speeches were as bad as a Las Vegas curse
To protestors he said, “I’d like to punch him in the face!”
While dressed like a gentleman. What a disgrace!
Still up for the Republican nomination bid,
Trumpty beat around the Bushes then flipped his lid.
He dashed all Ryan’s hopes then the guy changed his mind
Then convinced Mr. Sessions, even though not his kind.
Trumpty hired Kellyanne Conway to appeal to the girls
Becoming the first GOP presidential campaign manager in curls.
This should stop all those nasty allegations, Trumpty said with a smirk,
But when all’s said and done, did not really work.
With 1,238 delegates in full loyalty
Trumpty won the nomination as if he was royalty.
He once hired and fired his way to the top
But at the debates his mouth still didn’t stop.
The tweets from his iPhone seem never to quit
And much of those twitters are nothing but s**t,
But on July 15 he announced Mike Pence
His running mate-to-be almost past tense.
Media endorsement favored Hillary, overall
Republican, democrat, libertarian even small
Newspapers. They hedged the name Trump.
USA Today nixed on the fake-tanned chump.
Debates then took place starting in Fall
Through all three, Trumpty spewed lies full of gall.
Afterward some GOP papers endorsed only Hil
Divided they weren’t and Trumpty swallowed that pill.
When Trumpty said “This election is rigged.”
He urged voters to do something and jiggity-jigged.
Up stepped a supporter by the name of Ms. Rote
Who decided the best thing was twice to vote!
By November 8, the electoral tally was in
56.9% said that Trumpty received the win
But the popular vote revealed 2.8 million more
Hillary Clinton received, as her total score.
This is no rigging if you can perceive
It’s unfair and unwise, no one barked up a sleeve!
Interference by Russia is mirrors and smoke
And the Electoral College is the real joke.
Segue to Trump Tower on January 6
Where Trumpty, as yet, had not been sworn in,
I.C.s converged to deliver a dossier without pics
Blaming Russian hackers for the sins of Putin.
Denials, denials they came fast and furious
But everyone thinks that it’s rather curious
The Donald colluded several times right there
Letting Vlad do his worst on a wild dare.
Sparking the conspiracy of Trumpgate
The Donald several times himself to incriminate
Fired every person who tried to get to the truth.
Jon Lovitz could not have done better, forsooth!
Humpty-Trumpty will have to wait for his wall.
Humpty-Trumpty will have a great fall.
All Trumpty’s money
And all Trumpty’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty-Trumpty back
In the Oval office again.
