Trump’s Legacy

You stand behind your pedestal of fame

Sewing discontent and anarchy

Making duplicitous claims

You say it was stolen, then you try to steal it.


Your legacy will be one of infamy

On one side, remembered as a hero

The other, as a liar who spread bigotry

Most of us know which is the truth.


But you don’t like the truth, do you?

Because you sparked something with your lies.

Your supporters call it a revolution

But that’s just a guise.
