Written in August 2016 back when the presidential election still seemed a bit silly - obviously I didn't expect him to win!


Bedtime for Donzo (Ian Roure)

He's off with a whirl and the papers fly
No one can stop him though some will try
He's painting the slander in your mind's eye
On his shaky easel...

He's out in the world where the humans go
He's opened the gates now he's in our show
Out of his mouth angry noises blow
He must think he's people...

"What's the worst thing that I could say today
That'll have 'em all going on so?"
It's been a hard day throwing the wrenches in the works
Now it's bedtime for Donzo
Bedtime for Donzo
