The Twitter Tweeting Twitching Thumb

Updated on July 22, 2017

The reason for this hysterical satirical poem

I heard of Mr. Trump tweeting before during and after his Presidential campaign.

I heard Mr. Trump on the stump say he would not lie to the American people.... And then he lied. He lied about lying.

Mr. Trump said he would stop tweeting when he became President ..... And then he lied

I thought about this many months.... then when he tweeted that his tower was wire tapped by his predecessor.



A man who cannot take responsibility for his words

Should leave tweeting to the birds

The Twitter Tweeting Twitching Thumb

© by Shyron Shenko


The twitter tweeting twitching thumb

It is better on the twitter device

Than on the button of the nuclear bomb

But it is a danger either way


The Ogre who lives in a tower

Thinks everything is a game of power

As over the whole country he reigns

Bragging of things he will change

Anything goes wrong he looks for others to blame


When he was told of the larger crowd

At his predecessor’s inaugural ball

To the ogre it was bitter as gall

He began looking for ways to make his predecessor fall


His jealous streak won’t let him be

He hates anyone who’s respected more than he

Then one day the ogre heard

What a hateful old Judge on Faux News had to say


Thinking the ogre did not hear what he had to convey

From his chambers the hateful old Judge twittered away

“Was Candidate Trump Spied On?”

This left the Donald half crazed


The Ogre accused his predecessor

Of Malicious and vicious intent

Of having him wire tapped

With the FBI’s consent


The hateful old Judge

Set off a fire storm of tweets

By tossing the ogre a few treats

Knowing he would fall for anything tweeted


As the hateful old Judge insinuates If not outright states

That President Obama had Trump wire Tapped

As anything democratic he hates

And especially how President Obama Rates


As his Twitter Tweeting Twitching Thumb

Is beginning to grow numb

Let us hope he does not mistake

The buttons on his twitter device for the button on the bomb


A man who cannot take responsibility for his words

Should leave tweeting to the birds

But, maybe if he tweets it’s just as well

He still may end-up in a padded cell



Terrible! Just found out that Obama had me "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

— Donald J. Trump

      Hello my dear friend, thank you for the comments. I guess you know by now they won and soon Medicare will be gone to give the filthy rich more of a tax break, the tax reform bill passed the House.

      John is home from the hospital and he saw the surgeon's PA today and they wanted to start drug therapy and he would not sign for it, I think she was surprised and looked to me to convince him, but like I told him all they want is money, and I agree that he does not need any medication, his pain was gone after the surgery.

      Sorry you have diabetes.

      Hope everything else is well with you. Blessings my dear friend.

      I still don't have a Twitter account.

      Anything would seem to be possible, but I really don't expect much in the way of change so far as the presidency is concerned until the next election cycle. Pence would usher in even more discrimination against people who are not white and blue-eyed, married to someone of the opposite sex with a house in an upscale neighborhood, with 2 kids, 2 cars, and a dog. It seems more and more that Republicans hate the current Constitution which tries to guarantee everyone have equal rights and protections, but of course if the government chooses to ignore these rights and protections the Constitution becomes nothing more than a piece of paper for house-training puppies.

      We are living in another rendition of the Dark Ages. As Trump would say -- sad.

      Hope all is well with you, John, and Chipper. Take care dear friend, and many blessings to you all . . .

      Au fait, thank you for the comment, and compliment. I absolutely agree with you. Pence would be worse, it is like people use to say "at least we know what we have in the WH right now, impeach him and we could and probably would get worse with Pence who would do things in secret and we would not know until we got slapped with things that we did not bargain for, and most of us (myself included) did not vote for.. I would hope the election would be overturned if it is proven that Mr. trump colluded with the Russians.

      Blessings my dear friend I do hope all is well with you.

      The birds might manage the presidency of the U.S. better too.

      Forgot to mention that I especially like the graphic at the top, too.

      Trump seems to be a president without a party. He's so insulted the other Republicans that they're starting to see him more as a liability than a benefit. I don't favor impeachment though, because I think Pence would be worse. Pence would be more presidential, yes, but he knows how to get things done and to avoid causing a constant and continual chaos. Sometimes it's better when things don't get done because they're things you don't really want to happen. With Trump in office, given his agenda and the Republican agenda, I think it's better that nothing is getting done. I'm afraid if the circus was removed that lots of bad things would start getting done.

      Hope you are all enjoying our cooler weather. I know I am. It could be even cooler and I wouldn't complain. Blessings dear friend. Shared this on FB. Hope it brings some views.

      Peg, thank you for your comment and compliment. I don't think we are as divided as it appears, I truly believe that we will all become closer as time goes on, at least I hope so.

      Blessings my friend.

      You have a true talent for satire shown here in your poetry. I agree, it is rather frivolous of a President to tweet emotional responses to situations that come up, much like the rest of us who use social media to express our feelings. He should be above that. Unfortunately for the American people, the political situation in both the current and previous administration seems to have divided us rather than united us as a country. When I read comments from people who "hate" the Trump followers, it reminds me that at least half of the voting population are among that group falling into the "hated" realm. The other day I read a comment on Facebook where a woman said she rarely uses the word "hate" but she went on to say she hated our President and all of his followers. Half of our country hates the other half. How sad. Politics has really taken a turn for the worse in general.

      Shauna, thank you for the comment, the tweeting is not as bad as the dismantling of the EPA, Education (public schools) and all the other things that keep our country strong and safe.

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Linda, thank you for the comment, me too, I just keep praying for our children, their education, our environment and all the things that we worked for all our lives and this man trump will take away. I am sorry for what I said to my husband before the election, "I Almost wish trump would win so people would see what a nincompoop he is."

      Dear Martie, thank you for the comment. Trump himself said he will not tweet once he becomes president (he lied) he said it is not presidential (first truth I heard him speak.

      Dear Paula, thank you for the compliment and comments.

      I love the sign also, Tweety and Sylvester too.

      Trumpster should be his name

      Because cheating, lying and tweeting is his game

      He said and knows it is not Presidential

      But, he keeps tweeting just the same

      So no need to tip-toe out

      It makes me happy GF anytime you give me a shout

      Hugs to you too.

      Lol, Shyron. The second I saw the title, I knew what your hub would be about. What a cool poem and so apropos! This man has taken lying to new heights (or should I say, lows); Politico recently published that he has lied approximately 70% of the time. When will his devout followers finally admit that their "emperor has no clothes"? And I loved the Tennessee Bird Walk video.

      Trump, in particular, should not tweet. He is making an utter fool of himself. Or perhaps I should rather say that he is shooting himself in the foot. He is clearly not a wise man.

    • fpherj48 profile image

      Paula 8 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      Shy....You should get angry more often! You write great poetry when you're mad! LOL Actually, you write wonderful poems even when you're not mad. I LOVE the sign being held by the couple~~it's too cute. Makes me think of "Tweety Bird" one of my favorite cartoon characters! I had a yellow canary years ago that I named Tweety....and Yes, of course, a black & white Putty Tat I called "Sylvester!" Original, aren't I?

      It's quite curious why the Trumpster doesn't seem to realize that his tweeting is foolish, annoying, un-Presidential & causing those who hate him to want to bitch-slap him. Clearly, he is unconcerned with it all. I can feel the vibes on this thread and they're none too pleasant.

      Guess I'll tip-toe back outta here...like I came in....Hugs to you, GF........Paula

      I fear you are right and that trump hates America and would sell us all out or maybe he has sold us all out.

      I hope you saw the Rachel Maddow show tonight, she explained how the smear of Hillary Clinton was perpetrated and even Bernie Saunders.

      It is horrid and has been going on for years. What scares me the most is that people believe the smear against Hillary.

      Trump cares nothing about our soldiers or anyone else.

      "He hates anyone who’s respected more than he." That's all of us everywhere in the world, isn't it?

      Trump did indeed tweet lies even as his lies about being wire tapped were being outed by FBI Chief Comey as he testified in the House Intelligence Committee hearing on television. Yup Trump tweeted more lies about his previous lies. The man is layered in lies. Doubt any of us have ever heard him tell the truth about anything.

      Not much was made of it, but on March 9th this year Trump sent more of our troops into Syria. Can't say I agree with that. I want our people brought home. Alive.

      Going to share this on FB. Really like your words:

      A man who cannot take responsibility for his words

      Should leave tweeting to the birds

      Blessings to you and John. Take care . . .

      Shy, I'm wondering how much more the American people can take before calling for impeachment? I bet his thumbs are swollen from tweeting, usually his tweeting is 2-3 in the morning. How High Is The Water Mama? White on my friend......

      I have had to back off of Trump lately. He makes me so irate that I lose all touch with "my reality" the reality of everyday life. I can't believe we are in this position, and I can't believe his followers don't see the truth. Anyway, of course I loved your poem...but it made me mad all over again. LOL
