The Post-Democracy President


To hell with the Congress!
To hell with the law!
To hell with debaters
Who hem and who haw!

While time is a wasting
To salvage my lot,
The Congress is frozen
And doesn’t do squat.

They dilly and dally.
They dally and dill.
And nothing is moving
On Capitol Hill.

And since their dysfunction
Is hurting my cause,
I’ll bypass the process
And make my own laws.

By stroke of my ballpoint,
A tittle and jot,
I’ll sidestep the Congress
To get what I sought.

And with all the power
I manage to seize,
I’ll then have the freedom
To do what I please.
