Poetry Corner: “the gentleness of impeachment”

The gentleness of impeachment

So Trump gets impeached
a laughable tap on his knuckles?
as the enemies of America break into chuckles

Would the long list of COVID protocols breached in which the Trumpster basked unmasked
could this constitute a charge of manslaughter some to me asked?
just drink a cup of bleach
and forget social distancing on Memorial Day at the beach

And the faithful puppy Pence chairman of the Corona Task Force
as loyal as a well trained horse
his complicity could lead to the same criminal charge?

As a poet I am afraid I can’t opine on American law
But at least most of us agree if the virus was not so deadly their behavior might be best seen on an episode of “Hee Haw”

Admit it the twins showed little reason
thank goodness the election hopefully be the end of their season
well it could have been worse for the big guy if the charge was treason!
at least he did not build camps to intern enemies in
would his right wing Christian base dare call his behavior a sin
or will they and the rest of his gang
storm the White House with a bang
and noose up Biden and Harris
while Trump plays golf in Paris?
