Ego's Down

Ego’s Down

 

Between the lines

Sat on a fence

Above the law

Beyond contempt

There sits

A tired and failing

Precedent

Trump card played

Tho few tears spent

No pomp

No etiquette

Oh’ how the mighty

They do fall

Watch as ego’s down

Exit 

Stage door number ….

That's one cool dude in the avatar. One who would certainly get my vote, unlike others I could mention. Ego, yes he's got plenty of that, and he could find himself exiting the stage door before long. A clever write Neville. There's a few with huge egos that fit the bill in this write, not just the one that's played the trump card. Nice play on words. Aren't you a clever Neville ?

There are a number of Trumpian words that are now forever indentured to the asswipe in our oval office (altho you have a fine asswipe of your own over there in the UK). What I'm wondering is, will any word that has "trump" in it ever be free from this stigma? I wanted to read this in a non-political way, which is quite possible, since this applies to anyone riding around on a high horse. But alas, the trauma is just too damn fresh over here on this side of the pond as 1000+ die every day & the buffoon gets his minions fired up about whether or not athletes stand for the nat'l anthem . . . his minions gladly carrying the torch & providing a smokescreen for his failures. I'm sorry I can't review this any other way becuz of the word "Trump" being there!??! (((STUMPED))) Fondly, Margie

Although not very political I smiled as I wended my way down from the title ........ a most clever play on words and can only reply - - lets hope " ee goes down" the chute very soon.

I don't like to comment much on US politics (which is what this brings to mind) but I am finding the current leadership very entertaining.

hey if you see my ego would you give it a sandwich? he is on a sabbatical having been tired of being around me in my quarantine sequester! (i don't blame him I can be a nuisance) I imagine he will return at some point but just no tellin in the meanwhile I imagine he is cold and hungry for some sort of recognition! I still love that pic by the way:)

no worries.. consider it done son... :)
Terse, nicely rhymed and very apt portrait here. I agree with the sentiments, but I don't have the same certainty. Ever since election night in 2016, I have had no certainty at all about politics. I probably will continue to have none until I see a helicopter carry that man away from the White House.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, where have all the assasins of old went to?
Just when you need one most, they all seemed to have handed in their rofles and headed to suinier and safer climes.
Nothing surprises me any more about his ego that would make Kanye blush.
Who knows, maybe he'll be his replacement 😀
