Trump’s Class Dismissed

Trump tries to dismiss leaked tapes
as no more than locker room talk.
But Americans recognize the difference
between locker rooms and sexual assault.

Republican leaders try to dismiss Trump
after too many months accepting his excesses.
And right-wing voters want to dismiss
the Republicans who date to turn against Trump.

And even now, from profiling Muslims,
to mocking those who accuse him,
to race-baiting about the Central Park Five,
Trump dismisses facts, reason, and civility.

Trump has dismissed class altogether,
and we all just can’t wait for the bell to ring
and this horrific class to be dismissed
so we can be free of him once and for all.

So much to share, so little time,
so come on by to raise a glass and a topic
at your local progressive social club.
