TRUMPTY DUMPTY

Trumpty Dumpty promised a wall
Trumpty Dumpty did nothing at all
All of his crowing and all of his lies
couldn’t derail his November surprise

Trumpty Dumpty knew Covid was real
but lied to us all with a con artist’s zeal
Despite his assurance it would all disappear
at burying dead we are now without peer

Trumpty Dumpty birther supreme
tried to belittle Obama’s esteem
Obama served twice, but the vote doth confirm
Trumpty fell short of his own second term

Trumpty Dumpty empathy-free
Couldn’t care less about you and me
From heroes to vets and to kiddies in cages
all grist for the mill for the grift of the ages

Trumpty Dumpty man with a scam
paid little in taxes to old Uncle Sam
Now district attorneys and creditors too
are all lining up for comeuppance is due

Trumpty Dumpty trickster in chief
had a great fall to much global relief
[Despite interference by forces abroad
Inane allegations about voter fraud
the process held firm and was simply not flawed]
Now all the king’s horsemen and all the king’s men
can’t stop this nightmare from reaching its end

COMING SOON: Kilmer and Other Classics for Trump fans
“I think that I shall never see
Person, woman, man, camera, tv…”

INSPIRED BY David Lewis’ comment here:https://www.huffpost.com/entry/meghan-mccain-trump-loses-arizona_n_5fae10e1c5b663b496dac4b7

David posted
Trumpty Dumpty wanted a Wall;
Trumpty Dumpty did nothing at all.
All of his bluster and all of his lies
Couldn’t buy Trumpty Dumpty a bag of McFries.

Years ago, I created the beginnings of my ownTrumpty Dumpty idea, but never completed it. So, when I saw David’s comment, I was inspired to revisit the concept. So I modified and expanded on his!

I just read an article:
After Admitting Mistake, AstraZeneca Faces Difficult Questions About Its Vaccine

It reminded me of an article last week in USA Today titled: We’re Celebrating Thanksgiving Amid A Pandemic. Here’s How We Did It In 1918 – And What Happened Next.
https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/nation/2020/11/21/covid-and-thanksgiving-how-we-celebrated-during-1918-flu-pandemic/6264231002/

[BEGIN EXCERPT]
The problem [in 1918]? Researchers didn’t know influenza was a virus.

“The vaccine that was made was a vaccine against (a bacteria), which they thought was the cause of influenza,” Markel said. “So not only were vaccines of this era crude and not all that effective, the vaccine that they did produce was for the wrong organism.”

Vaccine science was nowhere near the scientifically advanced level of 2020, said Markel… The study of virology was in its infancy, and researchers didn’t have the tools to see viruses. Though bacteria are much larger and can be viewed under a light microscope, viruses require an electron microscope, which had not been invented in 1918, Markel said.

The vaccines that researchers developed did not stop an impending third wave of the flu.
[END OF EXCERPT]

FROM THE ADEPT:
“It is the height of hubris and the pinnacle of naivete to think that the same species of human–those who brought you the 1918 vaccine; the Tuskegee syphilis experiment on humans without their knowledge or consent; pharmaceutical drugs that are recalled, toxic and contaminated, rife with side effects and known to cause cancer; those who sell substandard medicine and products to “developing” nations; those who accept bribes to look the other way as they approve pharmaceutical drugs known to be poisonous; those who caused and profited from the opioid crisis; those who sell tainted formula to infants–[it is folly to think that they] know more, care more, are more ethical, more empathic, less motivated by money or less prone to making mistakes just as they did in 1918.”–The Ageless Adept
