NOW COMES the stone face even the dream is scared to lodge;
devoid of any sway to arouse interest amongst mankind
Eyes stubbornly disruptive and unwilling to conjoin adjacent brows;
on an oversize-head, decked with irreconcilable facial features
NOW COMES this foul face even the Creator now questions;
with unkind eyes so unsightly dazed the devil bowed to pray
True, this dude, rude and crude, rules like a mindless bull;
prowling furiously with medically-defied brain lobes
NOW COMES the forsaken face so mean a look; how hollow could a head be?
ill-favored brow, housing an unhinged frame of decomposed brain nerves
Eyes of a polliwog, marked by deep vengeance and deliberately harmful;
what a daring he-monster in a human skin ―unrepentant son of Typhon
NOW COMES this face so horrific to the core —even his own mother despised;
his last major fight was with the devil but the devil lost that brawl
How could the world deal with this shockingly repellent brute;
O God, rebuke this bug called Trump that souls of masses endure.

Can I take a whack at that face? I have loathing, wordy brushstrokes of drooling prose, outside the vanguard of poetry to augment your classic masterpiece. Biko nu.
