President Turd by Jennifer Lagier

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” – Emma Lazarus

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” – Donald J. Trump


The statue of liberty weeps as
right-wing Panderer-in-Chief
disparages dark-skinned immigrants,
labels them undesirable, unwanted.

He prefers white folks, like Norwegians,
encourages their unfettered migration
into the cesspool of what once was
an egalitarian, welcoming land.

Republican enablers down pedal his racist vulgarity.
From the other side of the aisle, a handful
of outraged politicians take the xenophobic dotard
illegitimately inhabiting the White House to task.


Dr. Jennifer Lagier
