Simple Mindedness

the ones who voted to put the man in the White House
are given the label simple minded
personally I wear that label
with pride
for goodness sake
rather be simple minded
than just one more lackey for
Hillary Rodham Clinton
I am not about to go into all the reasons
that Trump made sense to me
rather than  the Clinton team
America wanted change
from corrupt politicians and we got it
after the election
after the swearing in
and the days after
the president was surprised
at the viciousness
of the attacks on him
was heard to say
After the election I thought everyone
would pull together
eh, I suppose that was a
simple minded thing to say
