Poem by Chad Parenteau

 

Donald Trump Jesus, Chapter 4

Donald Trump Jesus
feeds the pride-hungry masses
with two tanks and a flyover.

Donald Trump Jesus
says the Virgin Mary
is not his type.

Donald Trump Jesus
asks those without sin
to lend him their stones.

Donald Trump Jesus
wants a bigger table
for the last supper.

Donald Trump Jesus
gives medals of honor
to all his disciples.

Donald Trump Jesus
denies all of them.
Cocks crow themselves hoarse.

Donald Trump Jesus
says one of them is a traitor
with zero credibility.

Donald Trump Jesus
trusts no one but him
to put in the nails.
