“A bigger button”, Mr. Trump?

Could you be compensating for something?!

With savage wit, LeRoy strikes a devastating blow against empire and its rulers!

From Bush through Obama to Trump, LeRoy charts an epic course through the inferno of U.S. politics. Yet his verses are rendered with such wit and inventive force that the reader is entertained, rather than overwhelmed, and supported by a wealth of deeply researched historical record to inspire progressive forces at this critical time for humanity.

In the age-old contention between prophets and rulers, score one for the prophets, and witness that the pen really is mightier than the sword!
