HIDEAWAY

entry picture

(A man afraid of his own people)

 

Hideaway (Come on)

A man with two feet of clay

A man who will talk True Grit

The truth of it

He’s full of shit

And needs to hideaway.

 

Hideaway (Come on)

Far from the light of day

Leaving behind this mess

Of black unrest

And their protest

Where he can hideaway.

 

Hideaway (Come on)

Far from the crowds that bay

Where he can hunker down

His bunker now

From blacks and browns

In his own hideaway.

 

“Come on, Trumpies,

You sure it’s safe down here?

I still have cause to fear

Those voices seem to me to be so bigly near”.

 

“Hideaway (Come on)

Please let me hide and stay

Those folks don’t seem overjoyed

A bit annoyed;

So who’s George Floyd?

Please let me hideaway”.

 

“Come on Trumpies

Make way for me to pass

A whiff of tear gas

Then I can stroll to church for photos bold as brass”.

 

Hideaway (Come on)

A man with two feet of clay

A man who will talk True Grit

The truth of it

He’s full of shit

And needs to hideaway.

If I allow that the police were acting under orders, Greg, it doesn’t remove the despicable motivation of the man who ordered it in order that he could make a piece of bizarre propaganda. That observation that he is the only President to make policy of dividing rather than uniting the nation is absolutely on the money.
And thanks for the “Like”, Stephen.

As you say, John, they also tear-gassed the crowd to clear the way.

Quite right, MC. My mistake. I shall amend accordingly to avoid my further embarrassment. I gather also that the “lights out” was a fake news pic from a few years ago.
None of which, of course, impacts on Trump’s hideaway to “inspect” his bunker.

Any security detail assigned to the protection of the president will
tell you that any such walkabout by a president is their worst nightmare, done against their advice. Attacks - like that suffered
fatally by Garfield, almost fatally by Reagan and endured by Ford &
others, are more likely to occur in such close proximity situations when an assailant can get within striking distance from out of
nowhere.
P.S. It's Floyd...not Lloyd.

"This is a great thing that is happening" - the ghost of George Floyd (according to Donald Trump).

Not wishing to sit on the fence here

I do feel rather like a fulcrum.

Which way I fall depends on who pulls or pushes the hardest.
I would love to 'just' sit and watch, like being at the centre court in Wimbledon.

Waiting for that call to go out... "New Balls Please"

Does Donald need to grow some?
Or does he feel at ease asking a lacky to kick someone in theirs?

Yes to both my questions and both of you.

My head is spinning with all the spin from 'our' leaders I think I'll stay sitting on the fence in case I fall over and get tramped in the rush of people waiting to bash the nearest policeman (wherever they may be).

You’re not suggesting for one minute, MC, that he bravely strode through antagonistic crowds with his head held high, are you? Rather than that security services routed a peaceful protest so that he could pose for a selected audience in front of that church?
Or that they turned the lights off in the White House to save the lecky while he completed his brief inspection of his secure bunker?

JC - I realise you may not hold the man in high regard. However,
knowing the number of presidents killed in office or subjected to attempts to do the deed, Trump still took a very public walk that
evening after the disturbances in Washington DC. Not the sign of a man hiding away.
