Donald Trump has reportedly been finding that he has a ‘lot less time to write poetry’ following his inauguration as American President. Sources close to the President have admitted that he is finding this situation ‘highly distressing’ and as a result they are increasingly concerned about his wellbeing.
Trump’s love of writing poetry is well known, and forms part of the cultured ‘Renaissance man’ persona which made him so popular with the American people. He became particularly well known for writing 14-line sonnets, which generally focused on the beauty of the natural world.
Trump has previously published two collections of his poetry to critical acclaim. The first, titled ‘bad hombres’ was released in 2011 whilst he released the ‘grab them by the p*ssy’ collection last year. It is understood that Trump was working on another book of poems, to be titled ‘the lying corrupt media are so unfair to me’, but shelved the plan following his election as President.
However Trump has been finding that his commitments as President are leaving him with increasingly little time to write poetry, and he’s sometimes spending as little as three hours a day on his hobby. A senior White House source revealed that Trump had been planning to spend much of the weekend writing a poem on the Hudson River, but got distracted ‘when a minor celebrity tweeted something rude about him’.
The source did however provide us with one of Trump’s more recent works, written on Valentine's Day, which we’ve decided to publish in full:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
If you’re a journalist,
I’m going to put you in jail.
