100 days of Trump

100 days of Trump make me want to stop reading the news. Sometimes it is funny. That the president is like the Monopoly man, a 30s New Yorker cartoon lampooning the rich, or Flagstaff (?) (Groucho Marx role in Horse Feathers). Then it is imposing, an imposition, barometer pressure oppressively rising - stormy weather. Reading about the tax plan, to make LLC lives even easier - the ones who tear up the city, cut down the trees, put people in boxes, and use your money to turbo charge their life style. And, as has happened to me, suggest they are holier than you because they panned gruel at a food line one morning as cameras snapped. Now, the New York developer is in the vault, throwing dollars like custard pies with relish, and it becomes pain funny bone pain, maybe, but pain.

We may have to go to war in Korea again, unfinished business to finish, and fear. Shooting hibernating bears a problem? - we can make it happen! 100 days of Trump make me want to stop reading the news. On the other side of this for me is the harp music playing crazily as someone close is dying. Hard times come again once more. 100 days of Trump make me want to stop reading the news.

Bold Stump Song 2017



Bold stump messed up at school
Bold stump broke the teachers rule
Push the Studebaker over a cliff
end up on monsignors list
Bold stump bold stump bold stump

Bold stump at the running bare camp
Bold stump in the convent vent
M80 in the boys room stall
Bold stump says muck it all
Bold stump bold stump bold stump

Bold stump with the altar wine
Bold stump in the bursar's line
Bold stump with a banshee yell
Bold stump like ringing a bell
Bold stump bold stump bold stump.

Look out, it's MOAB coming!







Look out, it's MOAB coming!

I read the news
The Mother of All Bombs
Fired away

Mr Trump said
it was huge and
to what's next answered

Make it bigger
Call out the dancers
Get me the doctor
Bring on the enhancers.
