A Dangerous Path

A Dangerous Path

A Poem by Bob B

As Trump gets more obnoxious, his

Approval ratings rise.

Why can't more Americans see

The danger in his lies?


The man's a total disaster; he's

A wheel missing some spokes.

At first he lied at his rallies, saying

COVID-19 was a hoax.


Now he wants to expunge those words

From all the records, of course.

He's doing it to save his hide; it's not

Because he feels remorse.


Misinforming the public's a ploy

He's done all along.

He would prefer to croak than ever

Admit that he was wrong.


As governors scramble to fight a virus,

Requests go unheeded.

States compete for medical

Supplies badly needed.


Many people's lives are at risk.

Health workers require

Protective gear, for they are directly

In the line of fire.


"America first" has long been Trump's

Pretended aspiration.

We ARE first: we have more cases

Than any other nation--


Cases of COVID-19, that is.

The numbers, too, are rising.

Due to our government's slow response,

That is not surprising.


Testing, testing, testing is key,

Experts keep repeating.

To act without adhering to facts

Is totally self-defeating.


Experts, speak out! Don't be afraid

Of Trump's tantrums and wrath.

Failure to give us the truth will lead us

Down a dangerous path.
