The president is afraid of makeup stains on his mask
and unsightly smears on his photographed face.”
—letter to The New York Times from Sarah Crichton
So, could it be that what he’s fearing
Is gobs of orange makeup smearing?
Could that be why he takes the view
That wearing masks is up to you?
And why he mocks as sissies those
Who cover up the mouth and nose,
So even some not in his base
Now emulate his unmasked face?
A shame so many die so he
Can keep his visage blemish-free.
