Hocus Pocus: The Results Are Bogus


Hocus pocus, the results are in, and they’re bogus,                    trumpwolf

been a three-ring circus act;

no one knows what’s fiction and what is fact.

Clowns, jokers, and fools,

they play by their own set of rules.politiccc

Hocus pocus, no one seemed to notice,

a wolf in sheep’s clothes,

pulled the wool over their eyes, right under their nose.

Desperate, we listen to foolish men,

and along comes the charlatan,

to line his pockets even more.nero

Rome is burning, who’ll save the poor.

Nero, oblivious to the surrounding ruin,

kept playing his tune.

Hocus pocus, a state of deep hypnosis, spelyyy

wake up from under this spell,

this dream’s not going to end well.

A bag of tricks, dirty politics,dirty-polit

now were in a fix, what about those cabinet picks?

We’ll follow the leader, we’ll listen to him; he did win.

Stick our necks out, go out in a limb,

don’t be worried, he’s got our back.trumptower

All is wonderful and terrific, get ready for the sack.

Hocus pocus, we let the jester joke us.

He’s keeping it a family affair,kids

he needs all the kids there.

His business is going to prosper,

there’s nothing improper.

Don’t expect those tax returns,taxxx

it’s no ones business what he earns.

His towers and casinos, all his properties,

conflict of interest; just political legalese.

Hocus pocus, all the show and glitter; we lost our focus.

The bankers and business buddies stand in wait,

for favors and positions, they salivate.

His legions still stand in support,ttrump

no one’s jumping ship or ready to abort.

All he needs is a chance, we’ve got to give him that,

the art of the deal isn’t about being a diplomat.

Behind closed doors; wheeling and dealing,

the sky’s the limit, there’s no ceiling.

Hocus pocus, the mad man broke us!

he gave Putin the nod to hack,putin

with a wink, an all out attack.

Hand in hand with the Kremlin,

he’s their own little gremlin.krem

Hocus pocus, it’s bitter, going to choke us.

The rich will get their tax breaks,

the poor, they’ll eat cakes.

We’ll have war after war, bankrupt the country,

rob the treasury, we’ll be paying for a century.

There goes the deficit!

Forget about the planet, it’s about had it.

Hocus pocus, floundering and hopeless.

In these coming times of tribulation,

will go the health, the wealth of the nation.

Oh, Capitalism; what a beautiful thing.

when a man can become a king.

Hocus pocus, a mass hypnosis,

Democracy is dead;

all I see is red.

  1. Thanks so much Christy. I was actually afraid to read the comment, expecting to get a blistering. it means a lot to know I am not the only one. Thank you so much. I can only hope that I and others that feel this way, are wrong.


  2. You nailed it, Stephanie! “Hocus-pocus” perfectly encapsulates the demogoguery that unfolded this fall. I’d like to find a pen with a sword attached. Until then, your words cut through the witches’ brew of dog-whistle racism, white surpremacy, xenophobia, and “other” hating.

    1. Thanks so much Dean. I am always grateful for your comments, because you get the point I am trying to make. I try to push and challenge myself to come up with something simple on the surface, but with an underlying complexity. I didn’t get much response to this at all, or really any of my Trump pieces. I didn’t really expect to. What really matters though, is hearing from people that see through the facade and share real concerns and worries for the future. We can’t know what will happen. From the antics and behavior we have seen, and everything that has transpired since the results of the election, it sure doesn’t look like it will be anything good, but damaging and far reaching. I am so happy, you understood the witches brew metaphor. As always your comments inspire me. I don’t know if I can keep writing worthy material.


    1. Hitler was just a little guy too. Not saying he’s Hitler though. Come back in four years and let me know if you think all was good. I am not the only one that has concerns. All I need to do is look at his cabinet member picks, and read his immature tweets. That should be enough for concern and he’s not even in office yet. I am sorry that you disagree with me, but isn’t that what makes America great? We can disagree for now.

      1. All is not good, and it won’t be in four years. But the perfect mix of good and evil is working together for a good that’s coming to all in maybe 20,000 years, more or less. If you disagree with this, or disbelieve this, it’s OK. I don’t disagree with you; things are bad now. They could get exponentially worse soon. Are you ready for hell? Regardless, we’ll all come out smelling like a rose, no matter what happens.

  3. I am in perfect harmony with you about the 20,000 years more or less, By that time, i believe we will long be gone, and some other species that is able to survive and thrive, will hold dominance over the planet, and we will be nothing but dust. I am not ready for Hell, but I am pretty much helpless to stop the oncoming tide.
