Anti-Trump Day 2060

#1 Post by FranktheFrank » 12 Apr 2019, 13:18

Anti-Trump day got off with a bang,
rioting in Cleveland, the rooting out
of Christians who failed to send their children
to transgender and cross-dressing schools.
Far right politicians forced to attend
homosexual education lessons:
theory and practice.

One part of the Trump barricade left
standing for a length of 100 yards
as lesson in futility, the far liberals
had won long before Trump ended
his second term. The armed forces
infiltrated LGA activists, drugs legalised,
abortion the norm, the border opened
up to anyone pleading poverty.
Canada closed its border to the USA
building a 3000 mile barricade fence,
no one in and no one out.

The population of the US soared
to 1200 million, the ethnic mix
changed, only 30% of whites remain.
Illegal to refer to colour except
that whites are the enemy.
President Clay-Williams boasts that whites
will be out-bred in ten years.

Selective termination proved valuable
in keeping population growth down,
Camps for anyone over 76,
sent yellow stickers to attend
for rehabilitation, slogans read:
‘You’ve had a full Life, go out on a High.’
Raw pure undiluted cocaine.

Gross domestic product fell 90% by 2045
GDP per capita fell to $8000 and still falling
Health care ended in 2038, only the rich can afford
to insure themselves. China the sole manufacturer
of consumer goods, only the vast prairies can feed
a desperate population, people live on oats
and bread, the little meat available
comes from Argentina from huge state farms
run with forced labour supervised by the CIA,
there are no major cities left
in the sub-continent of South America.

100 million terminations a year, 25 million
premature deaths of young mothers in labour,
5 million deaths from underage children,
they die alone in city backstreets
without health care, without love.
Aids is rampant there is no hope of cure
for practicing homosexuals and bisexuals.

Inner cities run by gangs, the Mafia
is now small potatoes, the bigger
gangs from South America
and China.

In the US where some cities
still have police forces these are controlled
by gangs, Christian activists have gone
underground and are hunted down
no mercy for such reactionaries,
no pity, burn, shoot the SOB’s.

Twenty million white Americans seek to settle
in Canada via Britain's back door.

I love that hilarious, opening stanza:

Anti-Trump day got off with a bang,
rioting in Cleveland, the rooting out
of Christians who failed to send their children
to transgender and cross-dressing schools.

If your goal was to mimic the fears of a right wing white nationalist, with a touch of evangelical delusion, Id say you succeeded. The sad part is, there are people in my country who will actually vote based on such paranoia.

You have indeed captured the arrogance of those who claim to follow Christ, deciding abortion is murder, people who are gay are subhuman, and people of color are a threat. Good job

There is a social divide
a battle for supremacy
the poem attempts to show that
what went around comes around
it is human nature.
Where slaves were burned by white owners
blacks now in RSA persecute whites
where British took land from Africans in Zimbabwe
land is taken from white farmers outside the rule of law.
Where Christians, so called, burned witches
in time homosexuals will torment Christians.
Already free speech is limited, one cannot say in public
a contra view regarding homosexuality, abortion, transgender
without being attacked by liberals.
To be a Christian these days is to be attacked and mocked
John Bunyan in 'Pilgrim's Progress' showed that in time
to be a Christian will be when one is persecuted and reviled.

Thanks Bob and Ken
in my poems the point of view expressed by N is not
necessarily the point of view of the poet.

Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of protected attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Very well expressed.
A circular motion, what we do comes back, hits us with a force.
A natural event. Frank.
