Peter Meinke on Donald Trump: ‘He wants a wall like he wants a bigger dick’

There’s no real attacking someone like President Trump; only mockery will do.

No, I’m still retired from writing these Notebooks, but the combination of a pandemic in the streets and a paranoiac in the White House was unduckable: Too much time on my hand; I had to write about him. If you’re reading Creative Loafing Tampa Bay you’re already on the right side, but there’s no real attacking someone like President Trump; only mockery will do. Still, a little poetry may help you endure until we’re rid of him, or at least smile a little.

 It’s come to this:  A man too sick

at heart to hold himself in check

sucking up vinegar and bile

like the kings who used to foil

an imagined poisoner’s attack

by taking sips of arsenic

has tricked us  nabbed us  by the neck

soiling America mile by mile


It’s come to this:

His wall is rising  brick by bloody brick

Believe it  Get up  Time to take it back

He aims at strutting down the aisle

wiping off your smart-ass smile

We’ve come to this:

He wants a wall like he wants a bigger dick

Peter Meinke is still Poet Laureate of Florida.  His latest book is “Tasting  Like Gravity,” U. of Tampa Press 2018.
