You heard from John Roche, RIT professor and poet, right before the election. Then, John hoped his Trump poem series would mercifully come to an end. Alas, not yet.

 

Yes, Donald!

You are correct. Frederick Douglass is still
alive,
Still doing amazing things!
So is Mother Jones. So is Susan B.
So are Martin and Malcolm
and Caesar Chavez.

So is Ned Ludd.
So is Spartacus!

And you might be surprised,
But I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you or me.
