Resigned to go but still pushing the envelope big time, in his patented small-minded way.

Notes In Passing.

At the last possible moment, as he counts down the hours,
Before dawn arrives and he leaves with red downcast face
With twitchy fingers, with the last grasp of his fading powers
Don leaves Joe a post-it, writ with ill and begrudging grace.

The first word he's addressed to Joe not meant to mislead,
Nevertheless the closest thing Don could get to a farewell note,
Not a welcome nor a final word, Don refuses to concede,
Simply 'Good luck, Joe.' Don confirms 'and that's all I wrote.'

It's amazing Joe didn't reach for a flippin' Zippo and burn it,
Or rip it, rend, rive or tear it rather than cooly and calmly read it,
But, with a wry smile, add his footnote, sign it, seal it and return it;
'Don, I can't accept you wishing me luck, you're sure gonna need it.'

‘Deer Joe- gude luk – good luck.’

 

 

(Let’s hope there’s no more to be said on the misdirected unwrapped parcel of wholesale lies that is Don now that Trump, Inc. has been withdrawn from public consumption .)

    1. No, I admit to using poetic licence here. Who could imagine what came crawling out of his tiny mind and transferred onto some POTUS letter-headed A4 sheet via his favourite coloured Crayola. But it’s sure to be something petty and small. After all he has to leave mucho room for his massive signature!

      1. right! Man, I wonder if anyone of those handwriting analysts ever went to work on his signature?
        I rather thought the content of the sticky note might be more along the lines of “F*** you, loser! – DT” but who knows.
