The rise of Donald Trump is something that continues to be equally fascinating and scary. Every day, the news is full of his hate-ridden diatribe, sensationalist policy announcements, and self-aggrandizement.
We're not going to get into his politics here: this has been done elsewhere to a far better degree than we ever could. Instead, we are doing what we do best: to use the power of poetry, in order to oppose, deride, fight against and stand up to the undesirable entity that is 'Donald John Drumpf’'.
It has been said that poetry never changes anything. We of course disagree. This isn’t a pro-Clinton, pro-Sanders or even a pro-Democrats booklet (although some of the poets do allude to feeling the Bern…). It isn’t even necessarily an anti-Republican publication. It is however, unabashedly and unapologetically, anti-Trump. Enjoy.
