Day 781, The Budget
The White House sends Trump’s budget out today,
Almost nine billion more to build his wall.
Which leads some folks to speculate Trump may
Push his “emergency,” should Congress stall.
The Congress said there’s no emergency,
A resolution Donald will not sign.
But that should lend some sense of urgency
To that nine billion in Trump’s budget line.
The chant of, “Build the wall!” was bigotry
Which Trump encouraged in his bigot base.
That Mexico would pay—now history,
But Trump’s persisting, mostly to save face.
So, mark the White House budget DOA.
Now, we await what Nancy has to say.
