A TRUMPERICK

 

 

A TRUMPERICK

 

The ‘reality show’ mentality

Is becoming, these days, normality

Which helps to explain

Again and again

Why voters support such insanity.

    Humpty Trumpty promised a wall
    But grumpy Trump couldnt build one at all
    All his discourses
    And all his sacked friends
    Brought them Joe Biden
    A sane leader again

    ...... (we hope)

      Let's hope - at least he has empathy and he's a gentleman.

        Love this lol.

        The 'reality show' is a myth as they only show the unreal that people believe - or is that politicians?

        Wonderful painting Michael.

        Is Miss Berles sane - usually?

          Yes - she's still Biden her time.

            We said that twice, though I only typed it once (???). That's extra berles used up.

            Indeed so. We shake our heads at the choices U.S. voters have made in the past, but it could happen here too -- some say it already has, with Boris! I forget who said, "We get the leaders we deserve," but it is probably true. A witty piece of social commentary, Michael!

              It begs the question whether inteligent people are always bright. I guess not. Thanks Robert.

              I cannot quite put my finger on just what those who watch get out of such shows - is it reassurance that they are not alone? A world full of idiots succinctly portrayed there, Michael.

              Agree with Dave on this current issue -- and I luuuurve that picture my gifted friend.

                Not the sort of thing I normally paint - I was in my girlie mood that day.
                Oh dear - is that being sexist? Not intended that way

                Great painting, great poem. But we have come to expect that from you! :-)

                • Michael Edwards

                  You're too kind - thanks for stopping by.

                  Humor with a biting edge. Truth spoken out loud. Spoon feeding of the masses with falsehoods and none willing to do the work to find the truth.
                  Brilliant artwork and likewise on the Trumperick. - Phil A.

                    I think of it as a form of mass radicalisation. Thanks Phil.

                      And those 'reality' shows are comparatively cheap to produce - looks like society might be going down the gurgler without a life jacket...!
