Your 5-7-5 poem flows with humor and your artwork choice enhances your political message. I enjoyed reading your poem and good luck in the contest.

LOL - what a clever little poem. Your 5-7-5 just provided some light relief for me after reading an extremely sad story. I am smiling, and will be for the rest of the night, I think. Good luck in the contest.

Oh, Heavens to Murgatroyd!
If I am forced to look at one more photo of this...man's arrogant, fat, flushed, fleshy face one more time (and I use the term "man" quite loosely here), I fear I'll go postal!
The mere sight of his smug mug makes me sick to my stomach.
Nice 5/7/5, however, very well composed.
You can't help the way Trump Tweets or looks anymore than anyone else can.
Best of luck.

    Hi Dean, Thank you for your review despite your dislike for Trump. We are on the same page with presidential dislikes. I felt the same way about Obama. Still, you had yours for 8 and now we have ours for at least 4. We have to share the angst as well as the warm fuzzies.
reply by Dean Kuch on 24-Jan-2017
    Oh, no. I disliked Obama as well. I voted for John McCain.
    I adhere to no political party. I vote for who I feel will do the best job for our country.
    A rebel in poetic expression, and a rebel in politics.
    May God continue to bless America.

    I liked McCain, too. I think people think they dislike other people, but it's not usually the person--it's their point of view. If we disagree with their point of view, we tend to say, "I dislike the person." For instance, I think Obama has some fine qualities and some not so fine qualities, but I don't "hate" him. I don't like his philosophy or his policies--but don't dislike the man. And everyone is entitled to their point of view.

    I dislike Trump because I met the man in 1992 when he was Commissioner of the now defunct (thanks to the Donald) United States Football League.
    I was forced to eat half of my season tickets to Michigan Panthers games because of his stupid move to try to go head-to-head against the NFL in the fall.
    I KNOW the NFL paid him to ruin the league, and he did a darn good job of it.
    That's why any time The Donald tries to become an NFL owner (four failed attempts at gaining a franchise in Vegas), the NFL owners unanimously reject his application for ownership. Who wants someone involved in a league who could do something as underhanded as take money to ruin a rival league?
    When asked by reporters why he was so nonchalant about the league he was heading being forced to close up shop, and subsequently putting hundreds of players out of work, you know what Trump said?
    "Oh well. That's why God invented baseball."

    Hi Dean. I'm not into football, but I know how much it means to the man I live with and to my kids. Yikes!! They love it.

    Just gleaning what I can from your comments this stuck out for me:
    "I KNOW the NFL paid him to ruin the league, and he did a darn good job of it." I'm not making excuses for either side, but what was the NFL's part in the fiasco? When sneaky deals occur, the little guy (fans/citizens, etc.) are the ones who are disappointed and take the brunt. These things always come back sooner or later as payback to the wrongdoers. Nobody gets away with bad things, even if it seems like they do.

    I have a Trump story, too, having done some work for his casino in NJ. However, any personal disagreements mean zilch when it comes to saving MY country. I'm on board with him all the way. Everyone has the right to love him or not--just don't burn down the country in the process.

    I hope he succeeds, I really do.
    I just have my doubts.

    First of all, we have to unite for our common good. If we keep on bashing each other, how can it work out? He wants to bring us all together as one nation, can people drop the chalupa? I don't know.

This work has reached the exceptional level

love it. succinct, but witty. nice double meaning of tweet and the photo is really funny. You did a great job conveying a message in a somber tone that is actually funny in content.

A well-written contest entry. I think you completed the challenge of the contest well. Your words flowed well and combined easily forming the message of the poem for the reader.

*smile* Yes, I don't think there's any danger of our growing bored with the Donald anywhere near his phone. I do wonder how they are allowing him to keep it near him. --sigh-- Thanks!

    Thank you, Robyn, for your great review. I doubt he will allow anyone to take it away from him and I champion his use of it.

This 5-7-5, Teet, has the correct syllable count and speaks to my favorite subject. I can hardly wait for Trump's impeachment.

    LOL! Well I guess we are on opposite sides. That's how I felt about Obama and it never happened. We each have to be tolerant of the other's point of view. You had 8 years, we will have at least 4. It flip flops back and forth. I do thank you for your review.

It's funny - took me awhile to read "tweet" as the sound a bird makes. Shows how that words meaning has changed over time. Kinda sad really! I thought, once I figured out the twist with "tweet" that this was very creative. Nicely done.

The objective correlative of the poem is a sarcastic reminiscence of a political system where premium for Donald's tweets overshadows the supposed cheery yearnings of the people.

The work highlights the drought of such cheery outputs amidst proliferating dimensins of the tweets.

The work constitutes a significant commentary that adds to the call on leaders to come up with actions that are benefifial to the people as opposed to playing to gallery, while the people thirst and growl for satiation.

Excellent work! Bravo!
