Like all cats, lions, too, nine lives are given;
And thus Trump, king of beasts political,
Of his allotted share has eight now riven:
Of McCain's guts he was most cynical,
And Meg's blood, Carly's mug, too critical,
Then Christian Carson mocked and called mendacious;   
Twin towers lies (which proved veridical!),
And gestures which the Times declared "outrageous;"
Then Muslims banned, and Clinton canned: this cat's's tenacious!

Notes: Spenserian verse: eight iambic pentameters followed by a last hexameter; ababbcbcc
