Standoff in front of the America’s Closed Shop

I elbowed through the excitingly rowdy crowd;
’til I reached his store.
I saw a big sign on the front-door glass:
“Closed
Out to Lunch”.
I wonder when he would come back
his starving employees are still locked inside
they’re likely in desperate hope
of
him
dropping by the bank on the way back after lunch,
bringing back a huge stack of money,
and paying their salaries
in
time
for this month.

alas,
what’s a mess
only one year after the great re-opening,
this famous store was temporarily closed
by the amateurish manager
who has been
ad
infinitum
turning it upside down.

his explosively aggressive nature has pissed many people off:
his own staff – one after another
has jumped
off
his leaky ship
into cold water
and drifted all over on high sea.
his patrons around the world have been so fed up
with his abusive language
and also his extreme
exploitation
of
which
he has proudly proclaimed as the Art of the Deal.

it was clearly that he believed it must be fake,
when one of his deckhand has officially declared
the famous store was built by their smart forefathers.
sadly, it has been governed
by a whole bunch
of insane
idiots.

as usual, he is furiously pointing
his middle finger
at
everyone
except himself
in
his damned old
game of blame.

for better or worse
those sightless worshipers of his
who must share the same blame
for
blindly following him
on his dangerous path.
these type of unconditional supports
would certainly drive him
further down
into
the shit-hole
of the so-called America First
also for the illusion of how to “Make America Great Again”.
