I wrote “What I Tell You Three Times Is True” during the heated presidential campaign last summer, never imagining the poem would be relevant after election day.
I’m excited to have my Trump poem, “I Read the News Today, Oh Boy” included in Yellow Chair Review.
I’m primarily a pretty traditional narrative poet but I’m also interested in visual poetry like this poem. I wanted to express my frustration with the media’s obsession with Donald Trump. I used 50 words for our 50 states, and the title is a line from The Beatles’ song “A Day in the Life” by John Lennon.
