…It’s Verse

In which your humble correspondent desperately works to keep up with the firehose of awful that is the Trump campaign, on his Facebook page, in verse.

[For reference by future scholars who unearth this text, once thought lost forever: in the fifth week of this experiment came the last of three debates.]


Wednesday, October 19: Today’s Trump Third-Debate Haiku:

My fervent wish is

That what happens in Vegas

Would stay in Vegas


Thursday, October 20: Today’s Trump Debate Haiku Suite:

Three debates are done

And in these battles of wits

Trump came in unarmed


Nobody respects

Women more than I do” –“Such

A nasty woman”


Trump, will you concede?

I will tell you at the time.”

(Not gonna concede.)


Friday, October 21: Today’s Trump Haiku:

I am just impressed

That when Trump called her “nasty”

Hillary wasn’t


Saturday, October 22: Today’s Deadly-Serious Trump Haiku:

So when he loses

He’ll mutter euphemisms

But his *fans* will ‘splode


Sunday, October 23: Today’s Trump Haiku:

Go ahead; it’s sport

Call him names, criticize him

He can’t *not* respond


Monday, October 24: Today’s Trump Team Haiku:

Katrina Pierson,

Healy Baumgartner, Kelly-

Ann Conway … top line??


Tuesday, October 25: Today’s Trump Haiku:

Describe Trump’s awful:

Fire hose? Tsunami? Hail? No–

Tennis ball machine
