Stink Eye

image from 

Stink Eye

“The evil eye exists and should not be taken

lightly.”--Firdaus Shazz.

The eyes

have it--


the truth.

Trump’s minions

are under

his grifter’s spell.

His verbage

of lies


the slime

that binds them

to his con.

For me,

his eyes

betray him

They shine

with evil


He has no

poker face.

This is incredibly powerful writing, Glenn! I agree, his eyes betray him. Thank you so much for adding your voice to the prompt ❤️❤️

I really, really like the conclusion that sums it all up, simple, brilliant, a concept that never occured to me...

Nice work, Mr B.

They say if you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it! Seems to be well proven in this case! The sad partis people still believe what they want to hear repeated over and over again rather than the truth right in front of them. A great use of the prompt, Glenn!

There should be a warning--that photo is horrifying.
Yes, all so true. But everything about him is disgusting.

Grace said...

I cannot bear to look at his face. He got the devil'e eyes, yikes.

Gillena Cox said...

Yikes indeed. Potent quadrille Glen.

Nice write, about a loathsome traitor. Amazing how close we came to losing it all this substandard example.

Tricia said...

Yes, the stink eye for sure. (And I've heard he's good a "poke her" but poker, probably not) ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘Š

I bet if you cut him open you'd find oily, slimy gears and a crusted, charred black heart. I think we need to put him and Putin in a pit and make them do a celebrity death match.

He's entirely obvious, and still they follow. Even worse are the ones who see it for what it is, but can't bring themselves to speak the truth for fear of losing their power. said...

He is Evil Incarnate.

I feel his evil every time I hear his name or see his face ๐Ÿคฎ

Couldn't agree more, Glenn! He gives me the creeps.
