A Basketfull of Deplorables
Author: BobR    Date: 09/14/2016 13:18:27

Ever since I heard the phrase "Basket of Deplorables", I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. I thought it should be the name of a book. So - with apologies to Edward Gorey and "The Gashlycrumb Tinies", here is my rendition of "A Basketful of Deplorables"...


A is for Ann Coulter, a harpie for life
B is for Steve Bannon, who beat up his wife
C is for Chris Christie, who swallowed his soul
D is for David Duke, a klan man a-hole
E is for Elephant, the sad GOP
F is for Frank Gaffney, pollster and SOB
G is for Newt Gingrich, who's - frankly - a douche
H is for Sean Hannity, who needs a punch in the bouche
I is for Islamophobe, Trump's supporters are some
J is for Jack Kingston, Trump supporter so dumb
K is for Katrina Pierson, surrogate with no brain
L is for Rush Limbaugh, our society's stain
M is for Paul Manafort, most despots his allies
N is for Nazi, at all of Trump's rallies
O is for Omarosa, a suck-up for Trump
P is for Reince Priebus, a cancerous lump
Q is for Queer Fear, his supporters all feel
R is for Racist, how Trump seals the deal
S is for sexist, vile mansplainers all,
T is Trump, never lacking in gall,
U is for uneducated, the crowd cheering wildly
V is for Vladimir, Trump supporter (though mildly)
W is for white folks who say "ALL lives matter"
X is for Xenophobe, telling refugees "scatter!"
Y is for Yahoo, non-white people hating
Z is for Zero, their empathy rating

So to all the deplorables a-stink in their basket
Here's hoping Trump's candidacy lands in a casket

(special thanks to Raine who helped with a couple of the letters)
