Poem by Charles Frederickson
Graphic by Saknarin Chinayote

Pollute-ions denominated lost cause devoted
Keynote speech denoted liars debarred
Unconventional promises delighted AC/DC defused
Bullyrag jeer smear fear demeaned

Tripping over two-too right defeat
Luxury yacht sinking thickset defog
Anything but de tooth decay
Gravy train arriving before departing

Rednecks decapitated ballooning egos deflated
47% detox IRS taxes defiled
One% exposing themselves nakedness debriefed
Hostile polemics fake smiles decried

Mass-media censorship journalists feel depressed
Fiction writers described facts decomposed
Softball players debased flunkies degraded
10S pros defaulted wannabes defamed

Able bodied cruising semen debunked
Stealthy wealthy organ donors delivered
Dirty laundry decreased depressed depleted
Models deposed lonesome cowboys deranged
