The First Coming of Cruz?

Gaining on Trump, much worse he looms,
Corrupt mind and body will lend us our doom.
He out Dicks Cheney, the dark force of past,
A ruthless life form, Cruz menace is vast.

Not a muse, more like he’s fused,
Into a sleezy chameleonic state.
He’s acting a part like a hidden fart,
Hoping fabricated personas won’t smell.

Disguise fashioned words as Christian creed,
That transmute fake into a noble steed.
A honeyed sincerity masks cold dead eyes,
As calculation is voiced in nasal and brittle lies.

Carpet bomb ISIS, inane, tough-guy plaint,
Then trump a Trump with build-a-wall taint.
Gluten-free is pansy talk for liberalized PC,
And we’ll gut health care for those who want it free.

Empathy culture we damn, unmanly it is,
Southern culture is manly, Ted applies a fizz.
A manly audience hides race and sex bias,
While blaming PC culture for emasculated trysts.

Vote Cruz over Trump, cold and dark over blight,
Be fooled again by an idolatrous Christian sight.

He’s more the devil than a Bush who meant well,
And worse than Cheney, whose tricks Dick can’t sell.
