FALSE EQUIVALENTS (a mini-monoverse)

1060x600-bdce9d9af75f08fb755843d27c62a391“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” – President Donald Trump

It’s a shame

Trump’s so lame

Victims blamed

Not the same

Fanning flames

 

Forty-five’s

Hedged reply

“many sides”

Justified

The bad guys.

 

Sad display

Modern day

KKK

Had their say

Saturday

 

Fascist boss

Double-cross

Should be tossed

Human cost

Life was lost

 

Speeding car

Drove too far

In the park.

Traumas are

Mental scars

 

This debate’s

Fueled by hate.

We can’t wait

For ill fate

To create.

 

Who’s to blame

For fanned flames?

Racists named.

Trump won’t shame.

They’re the same!
