​PETITION FROM THE ‘SHITIZEN’ TO THE ‘UNION OF SHITHOLE’


Your Ex-cellencies, 

*

Look, this shit of mine,

I write it often,

I write it open,

For my peace of mind.

*

I’m the first class shitizen

(Struggling to be a citizen)

From the Republic of Shithole

Petitioning the Union of Shithole.

*
To you under his ass,

Who look down on us

And what you see is all shitholes

As we look up and see all assholes,

*

If Trump calls us Shithole residents,

How won’t you be Shithole Presidents?

When he looks up he sees you as Assholeans,

Then down he looks and sees us as Shitholeans!

*

Therefore, Your X-cellencies, this shit is on us whole,

For we’ve turned our continent into a bloody Asshole!

With our situation neither getting eased in the East,

Change! Else we continue to waste away in the West!
