Trump-ty Dump-ty

Those who continue
to rail against Obama's "socialism"

and are seriously considering
a vote for Donald Trump

might do well to remember

that even an actual
total redistribution of wealth

would leave them
with far more money

than a policy

where the president
files the country for bankruptcy

and then keeps
the nearly 17 trillion dollars
in gross domestic product

for himself.

And since Trump
owns all transportation

and has a giant fence
around both borders

(to avoid a polite
Canadian invasion
and all that entails)

such folks will now
have plenty of time

and plenty of justification

for their two favorite
pre-"Trumpocalypse" activities

of complaining

and giving up
on contributing anything
to society.
