America’s Bad Romance by Jennifer Lagier

I want your ugly
I want your disease
I want your everything
As long as it’s free” – Lady Gaga


Go ahead–lie.

Spin actionable treason into fresh innovation.

Deny investigative journalists access.

Disseminate fake news.

Label whistleblowers

sad, over-rated.


Tweet cognitive dissonance,

threats, juvenile tantrums.

Promise vague generalities.

Flatter uneducated supporters.

Persecute opponents.


Use the Presidency

to enable nepotism,

even scores,

line the pockets

of your billionaire friends.
