I don’t mean to offend anyone, but I just had to get some frustrations off my chest -- frustrations I’ve harbored since Nov. 9, 2016.  In the words of the famous Roman pundit Flamio Sagacimus “Elect a clown; expect a circus.” 

(By the way: When was the last time you got to use the word censorious in everyday speech let alone in a song?  It came to me in the shower one day that censorious rhymes with notorious.)

No one ever seemed to listen; you were constantly ignored, 

And you felt lumped in with all those folks that candidate deplored. 

You’d worked so long and hard but never got the least respect; 

You turned a tad bit desperate and about to disconnect. 

Then along came Mister Right (at last!) a man who spoke the truth. 

OK, he was a little crude; he was a little bit uncouth, 

But he swore that he would be your loyal, tremendous, true-blue friend; 

He’d make a real clean sweep of things; he’d make it all great again.
 

I hope you’re happy now that things have tipped your way. 

This time it is your turn to shine; this time it is your chance to say, 

“You bet I’m happy now!   Don’t care who’s feeling sad. 

I deserve my Galahad. You bet I’m happy now!” 

 

Do you fully understand how what you started has gone down? 

This guy you thought was promising turns out to be a clown. 

He’s unfaithful; he’s a bully; and his lying is notorious; 

You cannot guess what he’ll say next; his tone is so censorious. 

His temper tantrums make him look no better than a child. 

He blusters when he’s flustered, and his language can be vile. 

He’s turned our friends against us; we’ve become a laughing stock. 

Instead of being just “sort of bad”, he’s worse than we all thought. 

 

I hope you’re happy now – now that you’ve made this mess. 

Would you like to have a second chance?   Want to reassess 

What you have done to us?   You picked a lunatic. 

You had your hissy fit. I hope you’re happy now! 

 

He keeps acting like a rookie, but he played like a pro. 

He promised you the stars, but it’s been more like a black hole. 

Let’s hope everything’s not ruined when it’s time for him to go. 

I hope you’re happy now.   I hope you’re happy now!
