TRUMPERWOCKY – An Ode to Fake News

“Beware the Trumperwock at run!

The tweets that bite, the lies that catch!

Beware the Jared bird, and shun

The frumious Pencersnatch!”


Don took his nuclear code in hand;

Long time Dear Leader foe he sought –

So rested he by the DMZee

And stood awhile unthought.


by GeekChickPro


Then, as in disarray the DL stood,

The Trumperwock, with hair of flame,

Came whiffling through Panmunjeom wood,

And tweeted as he came!


One, two! One, two! And through and through

His tweets went snicker-snack!

He felt Kim’s dread, and in his head

He went victorious back.


“And hast thou slain the Jong-unwack?

Come to my arms, my devilish boy!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”

She chortled in her joy.
