Linda shared this yesterday from Lin Wood’s GAB feed. It’s too good not to share even if I really don’t get poetry, much to a number of nuns’ dismay. This one, though, is in cuplets that even I get. (Edited for stanza clarity.)
Twas the weekend before covfefe, and all thru the land,
The lefties were trembling at the cards in Trump’s hand.
The patriots were nestled, all snug in their beds,
While visions of perp walks danced in their heads.
The laptops recovered in a raid days ago,
Shed new light on the crimes of our treasonous foe.
When up on the web there arose such a clatter,
Big tech blocking accounts like free speech didn’t matter.
Impeachment was threatened, amendment 25,
“The Trump administration must not survive!”
They screamed from the rooftops, on every news show.
“This bad bad bad orange man has just got to go!”
But Donald J Trump had a card up his sleeve,
a card so glorious no one could believe.
You see, he had caught them. He set a big trap.
He knew they would try this election fraud crap.
He watched them all do it, all in real time.
He was sure that Mike Pence would certify their crime.
His intel had told him they’d planned a false flag,
To make sure Trump’s destruction was all in the bag.
The Dems told Antifa “Show up in disguise.”
“Wear your MAGA hats backwards so no one will get wise.”
“When we start the debate, you all storm inside.
Don’t worry, the police will open doors wide.”
“We will blame all your damage on Trump and his fans,
So never again will Trump thwart all our plans.”
Trump knew Dems would do this, he sent special ops,
They dressed like Antifa and grabbed the laptops.
Upon them was evidence of aggregious crimes.
The Deep State had done this crap so many times.
Straight to the military the evidence went.
Charges of treason were now imminent.
No screaming or crying would stop what was to come.
Resignation and prison, and Gitmo for some.
Military tribunals will convict all these traitors.
Who stole an election because they were haters.
When the trials are done and the votes are done right.
Crimes done in the darkness have come to the light…
Trump will be sworn in to finish his eight.
And we will continue to make America great.
Call me a glutton for punishment, but there is hope in all of this. Just hang on. President Trump and his people would not have come this far to just let it all go in a stolen election.
Are we there yet?
And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:
Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.
Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone
Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.
Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.
Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there.
Auntie DePat’s requests as we are all, ahem, adults, not uncivilized pygmies:
If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.
The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.
Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.
One other vital note:
Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.
Normally, in this space, a reading from the day’s Mass is featured. Today, the readings simply do not fit our situation. However, a passage from Ecclesiasticus, a book commonly called Sirach for it’s author, does somewhat fit. This book is part of the Greek or Helenistic Canon of the Old Testament that was removed from the Septuagint in the 300 years or so following Christ’s time on Earth, and is one of the seven books not in protestant bibles.
Ecclesiasticus, Chapter 10
A wise judge shall judge his people, and the government of a prudent man shall be steady.  As the judge of the people is himself, so also are his ministers: and what manner of man the ruler of a city is, such also are they that dwell therein.  An unwise king shall be the ruin of his people: and cities shall be inhabited through the prudence of the rulers.  The power of the earth is in the hand of God, and in his time he will raise up a profitable ruler over it.  The prosperity of man is in the hand of God, and upon the person of the scribe he shall lay his honour.
 Remember not any injury done thee by thy neighbour, and do thou nothing by deeds of injury.  Pride is hateful before God and men: and all iniquity of nations is execrable.  A kingdom is translated from one people to another, because of injustices, and wrongs, and injuries, and divers deceits.  But nothing is more wicked than the covetous man. Why is earth and ashes proud?  There is not a more wicked thing than to love money: for such a one setteth even his own soul to sale: because while he liveth he hath cast away his bowels.
 All power is of short life. A long sickness is troublesome to the physician.  The physician cutteth off a short sickness: so also a king is today, and tomorrow he shall die.  For when a man shall die, he shall inherit serpents, and beasts, and worms.  The beginning of the pride of man, is to fall off from God:  Because his heart is departed from him that made him: for pride is the beginning of all sin: he that holdeth it, shall be filled with maledictions, and it shall ruin him in the end.
 Therefore hath the Lord disgraced the assemblies of the wicked, and hath utterly destroyed them.  God hath overturned the thrones of proud princes, and hath set up the meek in their stead.  God hath made the roots of proud nations to wither, and hath planted the humble of these nations.  The Lord hath overthrown the lands of the Gentiles, and hath destroyed them even to the foundation.  He hath made some of them to wither away, and hath destroyed them, and hath made the memory of them to cease from the earth.
 God hath abolished the memory of the proud, and hath preserved the memory of them that are humble in mind.  Pride was not made for men: nor wrath for the race of women.  That seed of men shall be honoured, which feareth God: but that seed shall be dishonoured, which transgresseth the commandments of the Lord.  In the midst of brethren their chief is honourable: so shall they that fear the Lord, be in his eyes.  The fear of God is the glory of the rich, and of the honourable, and of the poor:
 Despise not a just man that is poor, and do not magnify a sinful man that is rich.  The great man, and the judge, and the mighty is in honour: and there is none greater than he that feareth God.  They that are free shall serve a servant that is wise: and a man that is prudent and well instructed will not murmur when he is reproved; and he that is ignorant, shall not be honoured.  Extol not thyself in doing thy work, and linger not in the time of distress:  Better is he that laboureth, and aboundeth in all things, than he that boasteth himself and wanteth bread.
 My son, keep thy soul in meekness, and give it honour according to its desert.  Who will justify him that sinneth against his own soul? and who will honour him that dishonoureth his own soul?  The poor man is glorified by his discipline and fear: and there is a man that is honoured for his wealth.  But he that is glorified in poverty, how much more in wealth? and he that is glorified in wealth, let him fear poverty.
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.
