According to a news item, some conservative Christians believe that US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat from New York, is part of a coven of witches casting spells and hexes on President Donald Trump.




Bruja? Ha!

Alexandria's liberal coven
Ain't showin' the Donald much lovin':


They damn him to toastiest hell
With a magical socialist spell.


"Away with you, big orange meanie!
You're a latter-day Ben Mussolini!


No undergrad lefty in denim:
You're an overweight snake spouting venom!


You're a horror from Stephen King's fiction!
With progressive diverse malediction,


We'll set you ablaze, make you burn (oh!)
Deep down in dread Dante's Inferno."


So, Trotskyite witches (both sexes)
Condemn 45 with their hexes.


Will they work, these Cortezian curses?
All their hoodoo, their chanted black verses?


We won't know for certain, I fear,
Till the fourth of November, next year.

As soon as I read:

"Will they work, these Cortezian curses?
All their hoodoo, their chanted black verses?"

I heard Vachel Lindsay's "HOO HOO HOO," and I also heard, Bo Diddley's "WHO DO You Love."

There is more word-wealth in a poem than meets the eye.

Thereís a Dr. Spock quality to this that reminds me of the Grinch who stole Christmas. Maybe itís the rhythm? Anyhow... love the poem, the theme and the woman!

Consider me a fan of both the poem and the witch.
