Regrets- Satire poetry

Updated on August 19, 2016
always exploring profile image

My name is Ruby. I live in Southern Illinois. I love to write poetry, short stories and flash fiction. I am a retired R.N.

Orange twit.
Orange twit. | Source

Sometimes the look on one's face tells the story.

The ' Don ' admits he's made some unkind comments in the past that he regrets

Like calling women pigs and the mysterious bleeding coming from somewhere, he's not too sure where, perhaps the eyes? His remarks communicate clearly he didn't take Human Anatomy 101, or perhaps he just forgets

The man is seventy years old

The mind ages and it's difficult to remember what you've been told

He forgets how much taxes he's paid

Yet he never ceases to brag about how much money he's supposedly made

I wonder if he remembers the innocent students he bilked out of their student loans?

Or how many times he ejected poor people out of their homes

So he could build a golf course for his wealthy friends

I think he's suffering from selected forgetfulness, it all depends

Tweet tweet here, tweet tweet there

He is a proven liar and we do care

Who runs our country in dangerous situations

The nuclear button will be within reach, do we trust him to take care of our precious nation?

I think NOT. My vote will go to Hillary whose proven she is fit

The ramifications will be drastic if we elect ' The Don ' who has proven time after time he's nothing but an orange twit.

      Hello Nadine. I do not have the inside scoop, but Vladimir Putin and Trump seems to really like each other. Russia has a lot of Trump buildings. Bill and Hillary has helped feed people all over the world with their Clinton Foundation. I'll be glad when this political season is over. Thank you for coming to read...

      Well interesting but as an outsider ( not living in the USA) I liked Bill Clinton the best...not so sure about Hillary. I have a strong feeling that they use Trump to get someone else in power, but who?

      Hello My pearl of a friend

      How do I respond, how do I begin?

      If Hillary and Bill did all the bad deeds?

      They would be jailed hoeing prison weeds

      Instead, they built a foundation to help the poor

      They provide medicine, food, clothing and much more

      I've supported the Clinton Foundation from day one

      Knowing my money is helping the needy gives me much joy and fun

      The Clinton haters are bold and jealous to boot

      I say " Tough shit, who gives a rotten toot " !!!!!

      Rolly, that's all anyone can do is pray and I'm a firm believer that God gives us a free hand to do what we want. It is up to us, the voter, to get it right. Then there are others who believe our future is preordained, so I just go with my heart and knowledge. We are all flawed, we're just not in the limelight. I hate to see President Obama go. He did the best he could with his hands tied. Thank you for the prayers. We need all we can get from around the world.

      Hugs and blessings from Illinois

      Ruby, Ruby my gem of a friend

      Where oh where do I begin

      They said that Hillary was steeped in sin

      When they could not find a way to rein her in

      The Greedy Old P*i*k* say the body count is up to twenty

      When one would have been plenty

      But, to dig them up they couldn't find any

      Their 40 year old shovels have turned to rust

      And all the have come up with are piles of lies in the dust

      Now they passed the shovels to the Donald

      Who doesn’t know which end is supposed to be up

      So he just may dig himself another stupid grin

      *

      This is really great

      Blessings and hugs my dear friend

      Hi Ruby...

      It is as well a hot topic of debate here in Canada. In Canada we only have campaigning lasting 90 days where as the US seems to go on forever. When I look at the two who have made it to the top and the race is on, I can not help but wonder if you are all left in a state of confusion as to who would be the best option for your vote. They both have their attributes and both their downfalls. The best I can do from Canada is pray that God places the right person in place...

      Hugs and Blessings from Canada

      Hello Au fait. Nice to see you. I agree. Every time I think about him being briefed by our military I cringe. He is so lame he thinks nothing about blurting his dumbness on the internet. I'm sure the world is laughing at us. I just hope people will open their eyes'. Thank you for adding to this satire...

      Orange twit! I love it!! Yes, I fear that mouth of his will get us all into trouble if something isn't done to secure it. Even as only a candidate he is an embarrassment often times and he says the darnedest things way more often and more offensively than any of Art Linkletter's kids ever could imagine. I'd be very surprised if he ever thought, or thinks about the consequences of his deeds to other people.

      Hello Word55. I think he will be remembered in history as the dumbest man ever to run for president. Really I can see why the people like him, all the things he promised sounds good to people who are down and looking for a better life. Some of his remarks about Hillary are so horrible, but her skin is thick, and she is wise enough to let him rant, knowing he will hang himself. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      Hello Jo. I really liked Bernie too. I would have voted for him if he'd won. He had some really good ideas, and I think he was honest. We are now left with two choices, Hillary and Trump, they both have baggage but hers is lighter. Thank you for visiting my satire.

      Say it isn't so! Trump in the white house is a clear sign of judgment day. Remember the bible speaks of the last days when a great deceiver will attempt to gather all the people who believe his lies? No way! I lost my way for a moment. I gotta see Hillary and Bill running our country and prosperity flowing. But, if that's not going to happen, then the impeachment sounds real good. Cheers my friend Genna. Hugs.

      Thanks, Ruby. Yes, 75 days is a long time. In some alternate universe, Trump's out-of-control hubris -- together with a disquieting lack of knowledge on the part of his supporters and the more over-the-top members of the "I hate Hillary" crowd -- might actually propel him to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Should this occur in his everlasting quest for a Trumpian Dynasty, I'm estimating a period of about eighteen months, tops, before the impeachment process begins. Count on it. Happy Sunday. :-)

      Hi Ruby...

      We sit back here in Canada and truly wonder who is serving who. I would hate to casting a vote in the US. I certainly agree with you the man does rattle on about his accomplishments. You do have to admit he has dome well. The alternative as far as I can tell does not have a stellar background either. We pray the right choices are made come election time and as well a hedge of protection around the US in the future years...

      Genna, you stay up on that soapbox and shout it out to the world. People are blind when they think he cares for them, he cares for himself, money and power. He is so ignorant he still talks about President Obama being a Muslim and born outside the US. I guess he's unaware that Hawaii is part of the US. I think his biggest lie was about giving money to the veterans the night he refused to appear on Fox TV. When he was confronted by the VA he sent the money, what a liar he is! He is down in the polls, so he will pull something dirty to try and gain momentum. I agree with your warning. " Fasten your seatbelts the worst is yet to come " Thank you for adding wisdom to this piece of satire. Hugs...

      Hello Peg. President Clinton paid dearly for his womanizing by being impeached. Anyone who will be truthful will admit that he had our country running smooth, everyone had jobs and a little money. Remember when he took office we had a deficient, when he left office we had a surplus. Looking back, I can't think of many presidents who were faithful to their wives, including republicans. C Powell and C Rice both had private email servers, nothing was said. Why now, has it become so very important? The GOP drilled her for eleven hours and gave up because there was nothing there. The same for the lies about Benghazi. The ' Grand Old Party ' will stop at nothing to regain the white house, but they hate Trump and several high ranking people have stated that they will vote for Hillary. I say, " Welcome " I have read some articles written about Hillary that were cruel, so my little piece is tame in comparison. Thanks for reading and commenting. That's what I love about America, free speech.

      Hello John. The other day when he said, " Why don't we drop a bomb on Isis? " my head spun around like Linda Blair in the movie, The Exorcist. He scares the H out of me. As for Hillary, The GOP has tried and tried to get her and they fail every time. I will admit I'll be glad when it's over. Hillary and Bill will make a good team running the country. I think since he's 70 his cheating days should be over. ( I HOPE ) Thank you...

      Martie, the American people feel left out. Low wages for the poor. A healthcare system that was supposed to work and didn't. The powerful insurance companies saw to that. People want change, and they see Trump as a new kid on the block that will heal all their woes. We have about 75 more days for him to knock himself out, and he will. Thank you for reading and commenting. I was wondering how people felt outside the US. Hugs...

      This is so apropos, my friend. I have to join Mike in the applause.

      It is also essential to this "GOP candidate" that much of what he does be seen for the attention factor. The Presidency involves highly complex, demanding work and long hours, and dealing with issues, constantly, behind closed doors. It is far more convoluted than calling the shots in a boardroom over a luxury condo/real estate deal. You just can't make decisions based on your "gut" as you stumble through meetings and conferences. Nor can you call an impromptu press conference to talk about how "really, really great" you're doing because you're in dire need of a media fix. Tony Schwartz, the gentleman who actually wrote, The Art of the Deal, nailed it when he at long last followed his conscience and described Trump as pathologically impulsive, disingenuous and not nearly as smart as he would have others believe. Furthermore, the people who voted for him would eventually learn that "he couldn't care less about them."

      Frankly, I was surprised it took the media so long to ferret out the laws/ethics he disregarded and the people he hurt with the Trump U, unpaid vendors/subcontractors and Mohawk casino scandals. And these incidents are merely the tip of the iceberg. To his die-hard supporters, all I can say is this: Fasten your seatbelts, my friends. The worst is yet to come.

      Sorry for the long post. (I will now climb down from my soapbox.) Hugs, my friend. :-)

      Interesting. There are always two sides to every story and this tells the story of one candidate rather frankly. It seems that much more could be said about the conduct of Mr. Clinton in particular, the truth about Monica Lewinski, Benghazi and National Security documents on an unsecured personal server and more, but I'll leave it at that. Yes, saying someone is fat is horrible. Words hurt.

Why does he spend his money campaigning for president while he could have used it for so many good courses? What shocks me the most is the fact that so many Americans want him as their president.

      Hello Ann. I know how you feel. We only have two choices, Trump and Hillary. Both are disliked by many but Hillary is more like the people. She was raised by a working mother and fought her way to the top, and of course married a man who brought our country out of a deficit into a surplus when he left office. I remember those good old days and hopeful they will return with Hillary. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      We don't have much choice here either but our future candidates are a little closer to the people - most of the time! I must admit I'd be hard-pushed to choose anyone right now.
