The President Is…

I cannot bring myself to link to the inspiration for this one. It exists on twitter, in the president’s own tweets, for those who crave punishment. It is a bad photoshop, of Tr*mp’s head on the body of a boxer (the pugilist kind, not the dog, which would have been both better and worse). Edit: Or you could look here.

The President is muscular
And oh, so well-defined
The pinnacle of manliness
If only in his mind

The President is generous
He’s loving, thoughtful, kind
The quintessential altruist
If only in his mind

The President’s intelligent
Just look how he’s opined!
A genius of the highest rank
If only in his mind

The President’s a narcissist
He leaves the world behind
And lives where he’s a demigod
But only in his mind

For anyone who’s read this far, chances are you are a regular, so a little update. I am actually quite well and happy, but for whatever reason, whenever I have tried to find the rhymes in the world around me, they have escaped me. I’ve had things I wanted to comment on, and in situations where a few years ago I would have had to hold back the rhyme and meter that asserted itself…nothing. Thought about going back to basics and just posting limericks, but even those were like pulling teeth. So maybe the President being a narcissistic idiot will be therapeutic for me, and this is a new beginning. Or maybe not. We’ll see.

As always, comments are open, and there are a lot more words that rhyme with “mind” in case people want to continue the verse.

Oh, and… there have been a couple of times over the past nearly 2 years when I found myself reading through this site, for multiple different reasons. Sometimes I was embarrassed by what I wrote, sometimes I was proud, and sometimes I was just astonished at the sheer volume of output. But always, I was moved, that I have had so many readers with wonderful things to say. Also Mabus, but that is another matter. Thank you all so very much, from the bottom of all three of my hearts.

    Great to hear from you again, Cuttlefish!

    Let’s hope the Muses smile on you frequently from now on.

    If so, you’re going to become Olympian (one step beyond Kardashian!)!

    The “President [sic]…” is Cuttlefish’s missing muse? (Apologies for creeping everyone, including the mildly deranged penguin, out!)

    Said penguin points out the creep is merely the current occupant — not a president — of Wacko House, gloating over a Big Red Button which, if it actually does anything at all, turns off Twitter (and, perhaps, Fox).

    The “President [sic]…” is Cuttlefish’s missing muse?” What a horrible thought!

    I was thinking rather of the original Greek muses. From memory, there are confusingly two muses of poetry, Erato being one. I forget the other.

    Anyway, we can hope that a real muse, rather than the strutting oaf who besmirches the presidential office, will (continue to) inspire Cuttlefish. A mildly deranged penguin would be preferable to the Rambo wannabe.

    I am happy to see you, Cuttlefish.
    I hope you and your Muses find each other again and come out fighting.

    “in case people want to continue the verse…”
    (This maybe could go between your 3rd and 4th verse.)

    The President’s in martyrdom
    Unfairly so maligned
    Despite his stalwart selfless smarts
    All only in his mind

    Thankyou Digital Cuttlefish and glad to know you are okay and happy.

    Incidentally, I love your rhymes but I’m also happy if you write prose posts too in case that helps.

    Polyhymnia – muse of epic, as opposed to erotic, poetry.

    (couldn’t resist – my high school Shakespeare teacher made us memorize the names and roles of all nine, and I suspect this the first time I’ve ever thought of her (the Muse, not the teacher) in all the decades since).
