about this item
Poetry. Like the first collection, Waldman opens with a preview poem, and then he starts in with a list, one titled "Trump, By the Book" with the opening lines: "Challenges what a common thesaurus can do: lamebrained, schizo, preposterous,bugged out, imbecilic, dense, ludicrous,one and only trumpus dinosaurus,"Waldman follows that with a dream poem in the president's voice.This format continues throughout the two main sections of the book: after each commentary there's an italicized dream poem in Donald Trump's voice. Toward the end, there's "Donald Trump, Dream #32" which begins:"A big stage, me with Batman, Superman, Popeye, and a trim Miss America.That was Candy from South Carolina.Batman called me a real American,said I was more potent than Superman.Candy called me Mr. America,said I should move to South Carolina."TRUMP SONNETS, VOLUME 2 is sad, disquieting, angry, smart, hopeful, and often very, very funny. It's an apt follow-up to TRUMP SONNETS, VOLUME 1.
