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!
