Trump Addresses the BS*

Hi folks
I’m in front
of this
massive yard

perhaps
the word
sewer-country

camped out
in this
big fake
love

a lot of love

very very love

one per cent
or zero which is
fake media news

this love is
putting America

first putting
America
very very important

in this
word-sewer

this
word-swamp

you have a lot
you here
tonight
might even be
crowd record-setting

we oughta
by the way
with a lot of people
lot of people
ask

who the Boy
who the Boy Scouts
who the President
who the Trump
who the Cent
or Zero

to the
word-cesspool?

 


* President Trump addresses the Boy Scouts National Jamboree in West Virginia, 24th July 2017. He began by saying who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?…….
