Hold the Phone

If only The Donald would do just that…

Our President is quick to tweet
when he's upset while we're asleep.
His twitter-pating heart attacks
and takes our breath away.

His frenzied fingers type at will.
His spinning mind is never still.
Trump streams his conscious thoughts through tweets
that trump what's rational.

If only he would hold the phone
and voice his thoughts to God alone
He just might sleep more peacefully.
And likely we would, too.
