The Trumpiad

Written in the style and verse-form of "Don Juan" by Lord Byron, "The Trumpiad" is an epic poem in twelve cantos about the first year of the administration of the forty-fifth U.S. president. It's a cri de coeur, a pungent satire, and a richly allusive Jeremiad on the times we live in, as well as a throwback to the mock-heroic epics of Alexander Pope’s "Dunciad" and Ariosto’s "Orlando Furioso."
