The History We Write™ project started in the fall of 2016 as then President Barak Obama’s 2nd term as president of the United States was drawing to a close. Many realized that, within the context of US history, this had been a historic presidency that was deserving of a unique place and footnote in history. However, within many communities, there was also a palpable anticipatory concern that those who are often tasked with writing such history–in documentaries, textbooks, magazines–would not be sufficiently generous with what some consider one of the most of impactful US presidencies. A small group of like-minded individuals decided something needed to be done, and We the People was born.

The first official project under the HistoryWeWrite™ banner was the full color, table-top The Obama Legacy: A We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency. Several other projects preceded the launch but have since been added to the HistoryWeWrite™ brand. They all share the same goal. Whether it’s an account of life before, during and after the September 11,2001 terrorist attacks, or a challenge to the misinformation that often passes as conventional wisdom, or an over-sized chronicle of racism in the United States, the goal is to present an alternative perspective based on facts that are often purposely or inadvertently omitted from mainstream dialogue.

With that said, We the People present for your education and entertainment, the flagship product: The Obama Legacy: A We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency, available in Kindle, Paperback and Hardbound.

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…”

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!
