When he first strode on the stage
wearing his white suit
his ten gallon hat
chomping on that cigarette
while teenagers were left to wonder.
The words he shouted
bantered with the crowd
lead many to believe
he was a man of integrity.
He spoke of God.
He spoke of how to make things right.
He spoke of how the world would bow
lay at the feet of his mighty nation.
He took over with nary a peep
and hand shakes
which made everyone feel alive.
Than out came the truth
with hidden backroom meetings
promises were made
that gave away the country
the ability to fight
all while leaving the Joker at the helm.
without it, one is nothing
with it a person of repute.
Without it one is a buffoon
with it a person trusted.
The Joker not a man of integrity
but a blowhard who will lose the war.
