MY MOUTH DOES NOT CONTROL MY PEN.
Pardon my utterances,
What I proclaim publicly,
Is not what I sign officially.
My actions speak louder,
Than my proclamations.
Pay attention to my actions,
My mouth does not,
Control my pen.
Speeches meant for my constituents,
Actions run the country.
Regardless of my pronouncements,
I shall void all Obama-era policies,
By Executive Order or Legislation.
Publicly advocate death sentences,
For drug offenses and drug use,
Pardon drug lifer scorned by Obama,
For a non-violent drug offense.
Talk tough on Chinese trade,
Grant concessions to ZTE,
A Chinese telecom company.
I publicly warned Alhaji Buhari,
To stop killing Nigerian Christians.
Privately, I sell him Tucano Fighters,
And offer him helicopter gunships,
To continue killing Christians.
Now, you get the picture.
Watch my actions, not my utterances,
Action speaks louder than words.
The deal of Politics is different,
From the deal of Real Estate.
Welcome to Trumpism,
What you hear publicly,
Is not what happens privately.
The dealing of the Art,
More important and effective,
Than “The Art of the Deal.”
Politics, no different,
From selling snake oil.
Promise heavenly prosperity,
And deliver hellish poverty.
