The Prez Who Blusters #poetry #2020aprpad

April 10, 2020

Prompt: ‘the blank who blank’ as title

The Prez Who Blusters

He chases the headlines
with his outrageous shrills
Not just for the moment
but for hours, days if he can
& we fall for his nonsense
again & again & again

He knows he will shock us
& once stunned we can’t let go
Then he swoops in with a reversal
& changes his tune
We sigh with relief
’til he’s at it again

Some love the chaos he creates
they feed off the energy
vampires sucking on our lifeblood
The rest of us – anxious & depressed
But he doesn’t hold back
there he goes again

This isn’t just a game
& he knows the score
He’s a master manipulator
driving the press to his door
Someone else in the limelight?
time to drop an outrage again

& each bombing is worse
gotta keep us on our toes
Only his cult is safe
& the rest of us living in fear
Is this History repeating again?

My Serene Words

Seeking Solace in the Horizon of Life & Beyond


It is all about words. Your words are enough to shatter someone's heart. Your words are enough to make a broken heart unbroken. Words have the power to change your life perspectives.
