Humpty Trumpty Hit a Brick Wall: David Finkle
David Finkle was depressed
He does not want to feel repressed
His voice would be heard loud and clear
Humorous, satirical, ironic have no fear
Humpty Trumpty sat on his high-throned wall
Humpty Trumpty better start listening to the American people before he takes a huge fall!
Poems that are filled with harsh realities, truths, and stretches of the imagination, as they are vividly described and actions depicted. He leaves no stone or person unturned.
The poems are his opinion and some you will find quite telling, others straightforward and some will make you think to yourself is this really what this president has done! Humorous, short verses that allow readers to really decide for themselves the ineptness of our leader enhanced by Roberta Granzen’s illustrations.
Throughout the book the author sites many different people that the president either incited or tweeted in an adverse manner. As I read the short poems or four line stanzas I realized that the tone of each one leads us to understand the seriousness of the actions of the person that is supposed to lead our country. If you look beyond the words and read each poem carefully deep structure or underlying meanings should alert us that America is in trouble in many ways.
Each new tweet the author states brings him closer to defeat! The fact that he had heads of states, chiefs of staffs, senators and Congressman to advise him and he does not focus on their suggestions but discounts them and fires them is disheartening. Added we realize that the President has only one viewpoint HIS!
The verse titled February 28 th is quite illuminating as the author creates a poem focused on who can the President blame today?
“Who can I blame today? Who can I name today? Who can I shame today? ……. Who can I blast today? There must be someone here. There must be someone near! This poem says it in a straightforward way. He deals with Tillerson, the health plan, even wanting to cancel Meals on Wheels which so many count on in order to have food. Stating that, “ that is surely not a man who feels. A man who tells kids “ No free lunch.”
Author David Finkle poses many pointed questions such as: What has he done since Day 1? Has he read the new health bill? Added in he relates that, “early Jared Kushner saw that his famous dad-in-law played no active lying game. So he said, I’ll do the same.
Sean Spicer went bye bye and he has told his final life. Scaramucci, known as Mooch,” Now is prezzie Trump’s new pooch. But should he just once offend, it’s the doghouse as his end!
The book is told in journal format from day one of his term to the 365th day. Finkle created what you might say is a memoir of one year of the President’s life giving readers much pause for thought about the seriousness of what he is doing to our country.
The author states that the President misunderstands the constitution. He just treats it underhand. He adds that happens as the 49ers take a knee VP Pence and family, head off to the gate acting on Trumps rule of hate.
The illustration of the President of Korea, the one of Theresa May and the last you have to see for yourself tell their own stories.
McCain, Corker, Flake: How much will they take? They will take no more
Trump, whom they deplore. But, the verse titled December 26 sums up what the author relates as Trump’s one up or better than you attitude: You got a button? Your button’s nuttin’. You got a charger? My charger’s larger. He goes on with other analogies that I will leave to the reader.
Boasted about being on the cover of Time and that his tweets are never petty and he’ll just life and lie and lie-take news for his base to buy.
One person that most people wonder why she is even
There is Sarah Sanders who will cheer at his first successful year. Totally delusional.
Funny, thought provoking, hitting like a curve ball in many directions and at many people, this book even at the end debates who wants what shutdown: Schumer, Trump or McConnell.
The humor runs through each of the 366 verses and we wonder at the end what will the final outcome be. Author David Finkle is straightforward, honest to a fault and yet manages to enlist and engage readers as this reviewer read the book in one hour and then again wanting to make sure that I grasp each and every message he delivers.
So: Humpty Trumpty sits on his high wall
He mulls over his next move and stands up over 6 ft tall
Humpty Trumpty listen and learn before it’s too late
America is number one what happened to your slogan: MAKE AMERICA GREAT?
