Trump and DeSantis


Whatever you do
don’t get caught between
Al Capone and Bugs Moran.
In a gang war there’s no such thing
as an innocent bystander
who can survive.
It’s dog eat dog
plug or be plugged
rub out or be rubbed out.

You have a choice.
You’ve got to throw your lot in
with one or the other.
But there’s no lesser of two evils.
Both Capone and Moran think nothing
of doing children in
if necessary.

Better hurry
and make your decision
unless you want to end up in a plot
six-foot under.
It’s either Capone or Moran
and there’s no two ways about it.

Turn your fedora brim down
and your coat collar up
put on your black gloves
and with gat in shoulder holster
and chopper in violin case
go out for a night on the town.

Just light your butt
and squeeze the trigger.
Shoot first
and don’t ask questions later.
The Boss knows what he’s doing.
Keep your nose clean
and your lip buttoned
or you might find yourself
at the bottom of the Wabash.

There’s still one hope
of going straight
and leaving a life of crime behind.
After tiring of massacres
Al Capone and Bugs Moran
might get together
for a Havana and a beer
