locutus vulgaris

as expressions go, it wasn't much
i've heard worse from school kids
but you know, there's this thing
called decorum, and a certain high office
requires high behavior

no, the expression wasn't the issue
it was the thought behind the words

one of the few things that hasn't varied
from stumping to the big house
is the never-ending wish to make
america great again, as long as
you spell great "w-h-i-t-e"

or "aryan", or "norwegian". the ideal
of blond hair, blue eyes as wrapper
for a superior type of person
you know, the stable genius sort

anyway, it got me off on a tangent
thinking that the borg collective
would have quite a time with donald
trying to assimilate his non-stop mouth
but once done, i know exactly
what his hive name would be
