Trump Picks Pence

by Robert Brustein

Trump on the fence
Has ended suspense
By choosing Mike Pence,
For his new Vice President.
Though horribly dense,
There's little nonsense
About Pence in defense
Of dollars and cents.
He'd like AK Seventeens
In the hands of all teens
Who, roused by their genes,
Would empty their spleens
Onto anti-Right scenes.
An evangelist dissed,
He gets terribly pissed
At the burgeoning list
Of all those raised fists
In Los Angeles.
Pence is not bribable,
And is totally reliable
In quoting the Bible,
While Trump is more liable
Not to know any Scripture.
Well, you get the picture.
