Revisiting “What You Should Worry About at Night”

Revisiting “What You Should Worry About at Night”

  1. Frighteningly Ignorant and/or Dishonest Words
    from a, Like, Very Stable Genius

They’re bringing drugs.
They’re bringing crime.
They’re rapists.
He’s not a war hero.
He’s a war hero because he was captured.
I like people that weren’t captured.
I know more about ISIS

I would bring back waterboarding,
and I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse
than waterboarding.
If she gets to pick her judges,
nothing you can do, folks.

He’s the founder of ISIS.
He’s the founder of ISIS.

  1. Like, Really Smart: Found Poem #5

Actually,
throughout my life,
my two greatest assets have been
mental stability and
being, like, really smart.
Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard
and, as everyone knows, went down in flames.
I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star…..
….to President of the United States (on my first try).
I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius
….and a very stable genius at that!
