Fa – the Green Dragon

A Place for the Odd Musings of an Expat Bristolian




So-called President Humpty Trumpty

And his White House hacks

Prefer their brand of truth these days

Known as alternative Facts.

Every last man a liar and the Conway woman too

Make up stuff as they go along

Which they publicly like to spew

The distinction between the truth and their lies

Is lost on the alt-right moron who buys

Into Trumpty’s ideological game

Like me or else I’ll tweet to defame.

I’ll say nasty things all over the place

Lots of things, I can’t say to your face.

If you still don’t like me you’ll force me to sue

Along with the others I’ll get even with you

But just in case you don’t know the rules

Here’s the plan cooked up by my fools

Perish the truth and freedom as well

Fascism will bloom like the fires in hell.

I’m the new leader, commander in chief

My Generals just yes-men Oh what a relief.

I like this dance to the tune they call power

Better than chasing girls in my tower.

Switch off the lights and don’t leave the fan on

Where’s my court jester the so-called Bannon?

He’s down in the cellar drinking again

He does that they say because he’s ashamed

Of all the hatred he spouts on the right

Day after day and night after night.

So Trumpty you’re so-called and that is all

Preach that to your so-called crowds on the mall

Who you claimed showed up to see you sworn in.

If truth be said the mob was quite thin.

And one final word, we’re all at a loss

The so-called appointment of Betsy DeVos

I have reached the regrettable realization that I may have squandered my life. I did a quick count recently and figured that I have visited about 66 countries, and lived for more than 3 years in 3 of them. During this time I completed 14 corporate moves (relocations) and have changed my address more than 23 times. I should have settled on a profession that would have kept me in one place with no packing and unpacking. When I think of the time I have spent bundling my life into and out of boxes. Ah well, it's all water under the bridge. But I am grateful for the experience. At the end of the day I will be able to say with a certain authority, "been there, done that". A note about this site’s Header Image The Header image for this site is of the Smith Avenue High Bridge. The bridge was built in 1889 and carries Minnesota State Highway 149 across its span of 2770 feet, 160 feet above the mighty Mississippi River. The picture was taken from the river looking to the north-east and downtown Saint Paul. The bridge is about 1040 miles from New Orleans. One of the reasons I like this view is that I come from a city which has a spectacular bridge. It’s the Clifton Suspension Bridge http://www.ikbrunel.org.uk/clifton-suspension-bridge which spans the Avon Gorge and the River Avon in Bristol, U.K. It’s about 1350 feet long and stands 245 feet above the river below. Sadly it has claimed the lives of more than 400 people who have committed suicide by jumping from the bridge. As a side note, not all attempts were successful. two small girls thrown off the bridge by their deranged father survived the fall when they were fished from the river by the crew of a passing pilot boat. The bridge was opened in 1864 and was designed by the 24 year old architect, Isambard Kingdom brunel. It took 35 years to complete.
