Sonnet that dampens the party spirit
in which Trump has lost the election
Stories where evil’s vanquished by the force
of good are definitely quite compelling,
the stuff of myth and sagas for the telling –
real life though rarely follows such a course.
But now it seems it’s too good to be true.
Holed up in her ice-palace lair the witch
declares the lost election is a snitch
and, spewing venom, vows there’s no adieu.
Alas, indeed it’s too good to be true.
For almost half of the electorate
has not viewed Trump as evil and all those
who’d hoped a second term was more than due
are businessmen, and the whole party’s weightand apparatus still make powerful foes.
