Donald Trump liked to use Oscar Brown Jr.’s story of the snake at many of his rallies before he became President of the United States. Over a year later, I would like to submit a different view of this work:

 

On our nations way to work one day

Down our nations paths

Trending: Democrats say Trump betrayed intel community; GFY!

A man who promised better things intrigued a proud nation

His assurances of a better life for the poor and middle class

Excited a country that thought they were left behind

The people thought the powerful mistreated this person

Who had led their nation for many years

“He is right”, the nation thought

“I’ll support you and make you great again”

“You will be more prosperous and taken care of” promised Mr. Trump

 

Our nation supported him and his ideas

Our media kept him warm by covering all he did

Many times our citizens found Mr. Trump hurt by his own deeds

Many times our citizens were told that he lied

“I promise you better times.” Bellowed Mr. Trump

“I promise you we will be great again”

 

He became more popular and powerful because our nation’s people

Thought he was beautiful and would lead us to a better future

By ridding our nation of it’s corrupt past

But, instead of making his promises realities

He changed when he was given what he yearned for

He said he never made the promises he did and

Twisted his past words so they made him great again

 

“I believed you,” cried our nation

“And you now talk of eliminating what made us great before.”

The nation simply asked, “Why did you do this to us?”

You know your leadership will make us all weak

You know your past and now present will corrupt us all

Now all of our futures will look different from what we thought it should be

 

“Oh shut up, silly nation,” said our new President with a grin.

“You knew damn well I was a snake before you supported me”

“I promised you better times.”

“I promised you would be great again.”

“You will be more prosperous and taken care of,” laughed Mr. Trump.
