With Turd Blossom whispering in Trump's ear

to take down reality-based thinking

with trompe l'oeil, and egged on by that stinking

Roger Stone, calling for a reign of fear,

and AG Billy Barr, who should be dissed

and lethally injected with Trump's memes,

we come to Trump snarking he might insist

on three-peating, like some clown. In your dreams.

Our looming October surprise season

intrigues us, like a week of network sweeps

targeting polymorphous porno creeps

to disenfranchise our voting reason.

"Vive Le Roi!" Robespierre said --

"Nah," he goofed, "Let's storm the B*stard instead."
