In today’s New York Times, Nicholas Kristoff announced the winners of his Donald Trump Poetry Contest.

Talker has been accumulating our own share of Trump poems by Rochester poets. Like Kristoff, we haven’t had any pro-Trump submissions!

We’ve had Orange Golem, Trumped and Yes, Donald! by John Roche. And 45 by Frank Judge.

Shawn Dunwoody’s Psalms of the Glackx was written in 2001. But after the recent election, Shawn thinks the psalm is especially relevant. He plans to perform Glackx frequently in the next four years.

Ray Ray Mitrano’s “the privilege of mind with US as your safety-net” was written four days after the presidential inauguration. While Trump is not mentioned, we include the poem.

We are looking for more Trump poems to add to our Prospering Poet’s Page.

Still, it’s only fair to include Trump’s own prose poem in a mixed medium genre. (below)
