(A Political Cartoon)
Inspired by Charles Bukowski's .
"And the Moon and the Stars and the World"
in not more than 10 lines
In rapt concentration he looked up to the skies
Twitching his eyes knowing it was worth fighting for
At the pinnacle of his power accused of telling lies
How to stomach a plethora of unlikely bore
Detractors took pleasure in testing the waters
Pushed him to the wall questioning his every move
Opened himself to all the moon and stars in the world
In extended numbers more than he could chew
In his own swashbuckling ways fighting back smiling
A month down the road it was just only the beginning
