US President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, at Bastille Day military parade in Paris last July

Trump summoned a military aide
And demanded an army parade
Where soldiers can prance
Like what happens in France
In a tawdry and sad masquerade.

    There was a military parade in Dublin a few years back but that was different.

    Not sad or tawdry in any way.

    Oh no.

    …did the aide point out that the military were otherwise engaged at the moment…round the world trying to intimidate people…undermining democracys and assisting regime changes…propping up tyrants and faciliting genocide…enabling apartheid and slavery…

    Like all good wannabe dictators, Cadet Bone Spurs wants the uniformed ranks to worship at his feet. Will Trump look for a uniform with colouredy bits on the breast pocket to fulfil his role as Colonel In Chief?
