SATURDAY NIGHT ON TRUMP

 Saturday Night, and time again for Trump to be depicted.
It’s clearly not a show to which he’ll ever be addicted.
He doesn’t find it funny, says it’s biased and it’s jarring.
He thinks it once was better, that’s when he himself was starring.

 It seems to me unfortunate, this self-defense by Tweeting
Objecting to comedians is always self-defeating.
They laughed at Lincoln, FDR, the Bushes and Obama
It’s a very basic feature of our democratic drama.

 So he’d better grin and bear it for there’s simply no escaping.
He’ll be constantly subjected to much mockery and japing.
He may shake up party politics and bureaucrats will cower. 
But he'll never stop the jesters' role of speaking truth to power.
