A Way with Words

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: July 21, 2018

Exposing President Trump's verbal challenges…

A way with words, that's what he has.
A way that topples trust.
His use of "fine" and "really great."
His tendency to cuss.

The way he speaks then walks words back.
I wish his words stood still.
I wish they were not Jell-O like.
Their movement leaves me ill.

I wish we could believe the man
and take Trump at his word.
But much of what we hear him say
is basically absurd.

His way with words is hardly paved.
It's primitive at best.
It's marked by mud that's often slung
and stones he throws when pressed.
