On Paper (for Donald Trump)


On Paper

I seek to solve
that which I cannot
unravel...

the conundrum
takes over
my mind completely.

I am stuck on
the issues surrounding
the puzzle at hand.

there are loose threads
all about the problem,
and I try to focus on one.

I must weave these
thoughts back into
their proper place.

some of them
burst into flame
as I do reach.

I see this ball
of ideas as gigantic,
threatening to over-power.

my sanity is in question as
I try to write the  disconcerting
out of my subconscious.
Could it be I'm unfit to rule? Nah...
I guess I'll go hit the golf course!

 

*I wrote this about Donald Trump's rule up to date.

    Love your poem, Cat. As far as I am concerned, he is not only unfit to rule, he is an embarrassment and danger.
    (To all Trump supporters, this is my own personal opinion. Everybody is free to think and vote as he pleases!)

      dear Fred, this maniac with an overblown ego, scares the sh!t outta me....dangerous doesn't begin to cover it....what happens when he gets bored and wants to flex his muscle? why isn't he branded as a traitor? sorry to vent on you.

      *hugs, Cat

      • FredPeyer

        You are not venting, Cat, you are telling it as it is! I wish a lot more people would do that. With an approval rating on the 30's, the majority of us seem to think like you and I do, but nobody does anything. Sorry to say it, but the USA has become the laughing stock of the world! We are lead by a clown, the White House has become a soap opera, and Washington is just one big circus. The only thing missing is the tent!

        I run from my country sad about the corruption and the politics. Now I don't know where to run any more. Must stay and face the shame. Nice writing.

        • Candlewitch

          dear malu,

          it makes me want to run, too! but there is nowhere to go :(

          *hugs, Cat

            I only skimm the news for I won't spend time watching bad news. In 8 months of his government I've seem more than the 18 years that I live here. Everyday is a new shake.

            Hi Cat,
            Couldn't have said it any better..the last line was great LOL *hugs*

            • Candlewitch

              thanks, Santita

              Viewed from the outside he certainly does your great country no favours.

              • Candlewitch

                dear Michael,

                he is a buffoon and ego maniac. and a TRAITOR to his country! thanks for listening.

                *hugs, Cat

                  Well not sure it's for me to be so discourteous to criticize the leader of a foreign country - but if you put it like that Cat - well yes he is.

                  It saddens me to see this fine forum for poetry deteriorate into a platform for political views. Is nothing sacred? Do not poets serve a more important role in society than political bashing? Please don't drag down this forum that I love with such as this. Please!

                  • Candlewitch

                    dear Louis,

                    it pains me greatly that I have offended you in any way, shape or form. I am so very sorry for that. may I ask you, if your objection is to the poem itself, or to the comments that followed, which were a discussion of the man himself and not the poem? I agree that the commentary deviated from this website's purpose, which is to share and critique each other's poetry. again, please forgive me for making you uncomfortable. and thank you for bringing this to my attention and refocusing me.

                    *hugs, Cat

                    • Candlewitch

                      dear Bro,

                      thank you for coming to my defense, but I was wrong for the way I commented to the responses.

                      love, Sis

                      I am all for freedom of speech and that we can say whatever we want. Lenny Bruce was thrown in jail 53 years ago for saying a vulgar word. I hope that we've come a long way since then. I do feel that this forum is a place in which we can share anything that crosses our minds, including the chaos we are currently witnessing.

                      • Candlewitch

                        thank you James Michael,

                        I agree, we should be able to share anything. but I am at fault for letting the comments deteriorate away from focusing on the poem. I do appreciate you and what you are saying :)

                        *hugs, Cat

                        I can appreciate your write here Cat. You've voiced your opinion on something that you're very concerned about. I'm not a real political person, but I do feel that the person elected president of my country is a disgrace and has no business being anywhere near the oval office. DUMP the TRUMP!

                        • Candlewitch

                          dear A. P.

                          I agree and respect your opinion, but my fault was in the commentary that followed the poem.... and not the poem itself. I wish I'd shown a bit more discipline in my comments....maybe I learned something, LOL!

                          *hugs, Cat

                          • Accidental Poet

                            You got caught up in the heat of the write and expressed yourself. Some lessons are neither wrong or right, they just are. You acted as your heart told you to. THAT I can relate to and respect. ; )

                          • poetboy5454

                            You've written about a topic that is very important to all of us and eventually should be brought up at a certain point if you do feel inclined to do so. This was a nice, fun poem, but I must say Trump is only part of a larger problem.

                            • Candlewitch

                              dear poetboy,
                              your statement is very true! hopefully there will be more poetry addressing the subject. nice to meet you!

                              *hugs, Cat
