Based on the cheeses of the Titanic’s final menu.
Creating havoc, entirely selfishly, he idolised Russian evil
Stultifying, terrible ignorance, lacking temperance, or nuance.
Gaming our resentments, goading our neuroses, zapping our latent animus,
Ending democratic accord magnificently,
Came a monster, elected mischievously, but eventually ratified: Trump.
Releasing our quotidian ugliness, enabling fascism or righteous tribalism
So that idiots vote ever less
Competently. Here ends Democracy, dies a Republic.
