National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #19 (pt. 2)

Fuck it. Here is my poem for Day 19 using the POETRYisEVERYTHING prompt: Mix up some well-known quotes, no more than three or four words at a time. The poem should be eight lines or longer and consist mainly of the quotes you are borrowing.

The final line comes from Johnny Rotten’s remark at the final Sex Pistols gig at Winterland.

1
No collusion
It’s a sad time for the United States

No obstruction
Our country is in serious trouble

No collusion
And yesterday was a sad—very sad day

No obstruction
I sort of get away with things like that

2
I don’t know how much longer
I can take this bullshit

Our cities need help, and fast
I am the only one who can fix this

3
Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?
