I Had Left the President Outside

I had left President Trump outside.

I don’t know what got into me

but one moment I was reading about him

in a New Yorker article a week before

his fall, and I remembered I had put the oven on

& forgot all about him. The ex-President

was having a hard enough time without being abandoned

on a plastic chair with a cold southerly sweeping in & being compared

to Nixon a week before his fall. How the mighty have fallen, Shelley

might have intoned so I did the decent thing and brought the magazine in

where conditions were more conducive to the ex-President. Besides,

with the hail beginning to clatter outside, I wanted to finish the article.

  1. he was indeed a deeply flawed individual and the article in the New Yorker published a few weeks ago portrayed him as such — and I guess I felt some compassion for him in his fall in the same way I felt compassion for Hillary Clinton when she lost πŸ™‚ and, of course, the paralells with Macbeth and Lear are there hence the crown image πŸ™‚
