TRUMPIN’ IN THE TRUMP
(apologies to B.D.!)

How many trumps must a trump trump down,
before you trump him a trump?
And how many trumps must a white trump trump before he trumps in the trump?
Yes, and how many trumps must the trumpin’ balls trump before they’re forever trumped?

The trumper, my trump is trumpin’ in the trump, the trumper is trumpin’ in the trump.

How many trumps can a trumper be trumped
before he is trumped to the trump?
And how many trumps can some trumpers be trumped
before they are trumped to be trump? Yes, and how many trumps can a trump turn his trump pretending he just doesn’t trump?

The trumper, my trump, is trumpin’ in the trump, the trumper is trumpin’ in the trump.

How many trumps must a trump trump up before he can trump the trump?
Yes and how many trumps must one trump trump before he can trump trumpers trump!
And how many trumps will it trump till he trumps that too many trumpers have trumped?

The trumper, my trump is trumpin’ in the trump, the trumper is trumpin in the trump.

HIDDEN

Five American soldiers,
drop down over Vietnam,
hide in the jungle.

Five American soldiers
get very lonely.
They catch a spider,
call him Black Widow.
They catch a grasshopper,
call him Green Widow.
They catch a butterfly,
call him Flower Widow.

Five American soldiers,
one dies from snake bite,
one steps into a swamp,
one steps on a mine;
fourth one catches a bullet.

The lucky survivor
shoots a Vietnamese soldier.
From that guy’s pocket
drops a photo.
On the back it says:

Nguyen Diep Tranh,
14 years old,
child soldier.

UNTERGETAUCHT

Fünf amerikanische Soldaten
springen ab über Vietnam,
verstecken sich
im Dschungel.

Fünf amerikanische Soldaten
fühlen sich sehr einsam.
Fangen eine Spinne,
nennen sie Schwarze Witwe.
Fangen einen Heuschreck,
nennen ihn Grüne Witwe.
Fangen einen Schmetterling,
nennen ihn Blumenwitwe.

Fünf amerikanische Soldaten,
einen beißt eine Schlange,
einer steigt in den Sumpf,
einer steigt auf eine Mine.
Einen erwischt eine Kugel.

Der Überlebende
erschießt einen Feind.
Aus der Tasche des vietnamesischen Soldaten
fällt ein Foto.
Hinten steht:

Nguyen Diep Tranh
14 Jahre alt
Kindersoldat
