The Gospel According to Donald

The Gospel According to Donald

Where is the sanity, amidst
all the vanity, within
that white house?

Should we assume
all the doom and gloom
it predicts will come to pass?

There’s nothing great about
a nation centered
on paranoia,

or a leader
who bloviates only
to satiate his need for attention,

not to mention an obvious penchant
for lying when faced
with reality.

What of the sheep
who willingly swallow
his hubris and hatred as gospel?

The prompt for Day Two of NaPoWriMo is to write a poem that invites the reader to continue the process of reading even after the poem ends, by closing with a question.
