Trump's Initiative

Donald Trump
now has to contend
with the fact

that he has a much higher likelihood
than Hillary Clinton

of experiencing a
legal snafu

during an inconvenient time

in that U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel
has already scheduled a trial

on November 28th

for a class-action lawsuit
brought against him

by disgruntled students
of the now-defunct
(huge surprise)

Trump University

who in advance
and under expectation
of further instruction

gave his course 98-percent approval ratings
without the cloak of anonymity
and paid up to $35,000

for seminars
that wound up being
more like infomercials

and which did not deliver
the previously-promised material.

If Trump wins the presidency

may the rest of us
who are not gullible rich people

hold on to the slim hope

that he will forget to deliver
on all his campaign promises.

(And if that doesn't work
may we all remember
to duck and cover.)
