Anger Management

With only a month to go
before the Republican National Convention

Donald Trump has just fired
his campaign manager

Corey Lewandowski

in an effort to bolster
his campaign

which has been plummeting continuously
toward an as-yet-unknown nadir

with Lewandowski
the dangling Band-Aid

over the gaping wound
called his mouth.

And really
any decision that is bad for Trump
is good for the country

so we should all applaud
his unconscious act of patriotism.
