Seventy six percent,
Of what he says is a lie,
Or just inaccurate,
Depending on the party line,
A more honest President,
Than you have had in some time?
How about no,
Heres why,

He said he doesn't settle,
But he does it like a house,
All damned day and night,
And as quiet as a mouse,
He said he respects women,
But he grabs them by the crotch,
One more finger,
To one more notch,
He said that Mexico,
Would pay for that wall,
But as tales go,
That's pretty damned tall,
He has lied about,
The things he said,
Cannot keep the lies,
Straight in his head,
And people praise his honesty?
This seems somewhat strange to me,

He says what he feels,
But feelings are not reality,
They are fleeting manifestations,
Of neurochemistry,
Trusting them and not statistics,
Facts,
Figures and probabilistics,
Leads to intercontinental discourse,
Being reduced to a matter of ballistics,
Just because you feel threatened,
Does not mean that there is a threat,
You have been programed by the best,
To react as if on a quest,
And now because you threw a tantrum,
You have a baby riding shotgun,
Thin orange skin and a fan of sin,
Talking a lot of hookum,
Yes your God is now among you,
A man who can and would buy and sell you,
Willing slaves to his charisma,
All the wit of drying smegma,
He's been lying all this time,
And you drink it up like wine,
I would say that I'm surprised,
But I AM honest,
Things aren't fine,

See the truth has been abandoned,
Thrown off the edge,
Of your Grand Canyon,
What you call honesty,
I call Bulls***,
In the first degree,
I do not understand,
How it is you do not see,
You are all being played,
But the honeymoon will fade,
When your nation falls apart,
It will be you who unmade,
Its every last component,
All of you who were proponents,
Of the man who met the moment,
And lied well enough in twitter comments,
To distract you all from the facts,
To make you forget that hes a fat cat,
Who relies on corruption to make his stack,
But none of you seem to react,
Caught up in a dream state,
Emboldened to abuse and hate,
To grab whatever tail you can,
Without any kind of master plan,

He says he won most of the lawsuits,
Arising from his "University",
But he settled,
For a twenty five million dollar fee,
He says that Ford are keeping,
Their plant in the US,
Because of his finesse,
But that is nonsense in a pretty dress,
Ford chose to remain,
In 2011,
Well before Trump outlined his plan,
For his own personal twisted heaven,
He claims that his book,
The Art of The Deal,
Is the number one business book in history,
Because thats what he feels,
But its out sold,
By books far better,
And by now quite old,

And the list goes on,
Its far too long,
The stink of fallacy,
Became too strong,
The moment he stepped,
Up to the plate,
Swinging bunts,
You must have been smoking blunts,
To elect this..

I have never heard charisma and smegma linked together in a poem before


For that, well done, sir!

Crazy times to be an American.

Pretty much all the bases Brit. So many points to choose from for discourse.
I choose,,,,''You have been programed by the best, ''
Trump supporters just love to call out people on the left as being brainwashed. As being programed ''libots'' and to a realistic degree I cannot completely disagree. Yet at the same time they seem to have no capacity what so ever to notice the log in their own eyes. They think themselves all free and independent thinkers.

Really, really, really well done!!

And although I may not agree with all of your poetic assessments, the way you've presented them beats the hell out of any MSM version of same...

"All the wit of drying smegma" ??!!

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

The type of disconnect mentioned in verse makes the brain hurt- he's referring to logos, not pathos.

I would say the whole thing is based on the use of pathos.

It is not even relevant since I was refering to the OP himself.

I find it astonishing how "triggered" Trump supporters get when the object of their devotion is criticized.

Seem's sort of "snowflakery"




Trump is such a dorky guy, it's only going to get worse, really really worser, believe me!

Huh?

In this relatively small thread thus far I don't think I've seen anyone "triggered".

Do you have an example?

Since I was the only one that was critical I guess you are, in a covert way, talking to me?

I find it more astonishing to see that leftist hippies are triggered to write corny little ryhms about a foreign president incorporating words like "smegma" going weh! weh! weh!

Trump is not my president, I am not American and I am surely not devoted to him.

He is also President of the USA. It's only going to get way worse for those who don't like that.....believe me.

Thanks everyone, for your feedback on this composition.


What I was trying to accomplish here, is to highlight some of the things that make the recent talk of Trumps honesty, more obviously shown up for the fallacy that it represents, in a format which can be appreciated if not for its content, then its construction at least. I am glad to see that some of you enjoyed it.

a reply to: MatterOfPerspective

I wanted to respond to your comments in this thread specifically, MatterOfPerspective, because I believe you have misunderstood where I am coming from. I am no bleeding heart. I value logic, depth, nuance, in both action and the understanding which informs it. While I am a passionate man, the thing about this situation which fans the flame of my ire, is precisely that there has been a significant lack of logos, when it comes to some peoples assessment of Mr Trump, not to mention the ramifications of his election. While it is true that he has indeed been elected President and will shortly be taking office, I think it is very important to be aware that his presence in that role is NOT, as some here would have it, a clearly positive thing, that cannot go at all wrong, that cannot help but to improve the nation he has been elected to serve as its leader.

There are some logical fallacies at work in the minds of those who insist that this man will lead the United States to a land of milk and honey, and I sought, in writing what I have, to explore some of those, to show that the honesty Trump is being credited with, is NOT a quality he possesses and that any suggestion that he does, cannot hold up under the weight of his history as a business figure or even in the recent history of his utterances during the campaign. The fact is that this was not a work of pathos. There is no appeal to emotion involved in what I wrote at all. The foundation of the piece is the idea that the honesty with which people accredit Mr Trump, is not honesty at all, because its foundation is emotion rather than fact. It is precisely the lack of logos involved in Mr Trumps conduct thus far, which informed the basis of the piece, which made me want to write it.

The idea that his repeated appeals to emotion are equal to truth or honesty, considered equal to appeals to logic by the electorate, is precisely why I was compelled to show these errors in logic up for what they are. The fact that I chose to do this using a rhyme rather than a bald statement was also a logical choice. As you can see above, people who do not necessarily agree were able to digest the content without being made angry by it, instead some actually enjoyed the experience, regardless of their particular opinion on the subject of Trump himself. Again, a logical choice, because I am not trying to be edgy or divisive, or appeal to emotion, or start an argument. All I am trying to do, is to spread the truth in a format which can be absorbed without necessarily appearing obnoxious.

Given that I have tried to do this repeatedly over the last year or so, in other ways, I felt a change of tack was necessary, because just stating the bald facts in the ordinary fashion has not been effective, has been treated as an attack, rather than an appeal to logic.
