A tweeter named Donnie was mad.
He ended each message with “sad.”
When asked who he hated
he huffed and berated:
“If you dare question me then you’re bad.”
A golfer named Donnie did tweet,
“Another tough round I won – sweet!”
His caddie agreed
Though he had to concede
That his boss was a terrible cheat.
A deplorable named Donnie did call
for building a beautiful wall.
“Bad hombres stay out!
No thugging about
except if you’re good at baseball.”
A husband named Donnie did cry:
“She won’t look me straight in the eye.”
Melania said “True,
I cannot stand you.
You’re orange and fat and you lie.”
