Roy G. Biv Pt. 3: Yellow (Day 321)


Years ago, Mr P set detailed plans in motion,
To install his own president across the ocean.
He baited his hook with loans and promised power,
and, Lo!, caught some Republicans within the hour.

The ‘Pubs had been sidelined in 2008,
By a Black politician who filled them with hate.
With destroying his legacy as their guiding rule,
The party chose Roy as its figurehead fool.

The enemy-allies launched a massive attack.
There were murders, and robots—they held nothing back. 
Defaming opponents and promising the moon,
Roy yucked it up like a big orange buffoon.

Sure, they won, but most knew the election was potted,
And in all the best newsrooms, the scam had been spotted.
Soon Roy’s Russian ties became the main attraction, 
So the frenemies, frightened, cooked up some distractions:

They’d attack the defenseless, the children, the elderly—
In due time, they’d goad Kim into World War III.
