On Hearing the News that You’re a Great Big Loser

Schadenfreude is an ugly trait,
to enjoy another’s ill-starred fate.
In the sea of life, we’re all storm-tossed,
and yet … ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, you lost!

I don’t quite know what happened there:
to laugh at losers isn’t fair.
To win with grace, that’s best by far,
but … ha, ha, tee-hee! Ha, ha, ha!

I apologise for that outburst
but it just slipped out, unrehearsed.
I need to show more dignity.
However … ha, ha, ha! Tee-hee-hee!

Ha! Laughter is a wondrous thing!
What a gift – tee-hee! – of joy you bring!
You’ve brightened up – ha ha! – my day.
Ha ha, tee-hee! … now go away.

  1. The red wind doth blow,
    The US says “NO!”
    And what will The Donald do then, poor thing?
    He’ll tan up his face,
    Keep running the race,
    And sue his opponents and friends, poor thing.

    The red wind doth blow,
    The US says “NO!”
    And what will Ivanka do then, poor thing?
    She’ll preach for pro-life,
    Stay a Stepford wife,
    And to daddy’s name she will cling, poor thing.

    The red wind doth blow,
    The US says “NO!”
    And what will Melania do then, poor thing?
    With no more free rides,
    To the gutter she’ll slide,
    But she really doesn’t care…do you?
