The secret meaning of Donald Trump’s “Snake” poem


By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor


On its way to vote one Tuesday

Down the path along side the lake

A tender hearted nation saw a slick, silver-tongued snake

His orange-red hair and skin had been all frosted with the dew

“Oh well,” the nation cried, “I’ll take you in and vote for you”

“Vote me in oh tender nation

Vote me in, for heaven’s sake

Vote me in oh tender nation, ” sighed the snake


The nation took that snake into its beautiful White House

And watched it curl up beside a book by Leo Strauss

And though he couldn’t read, he got the message pretty quick

And with sharpened fangs prepared to prove himself a toxic prick

“Vote me in, oh tender nation

Vote me in, for heaven’s sake

Vote me in oh tender nation, ” sighed the snake


The nation clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried

“If Hillary had won, by now I’m sure we’d all have died”

Now she watched his pretty speeches and then she kissed and held him tight

But instead of saying thanks, that snake gave her a vicious bite

“Vote me in, oh tender nation

Vote me in, for heaven’s sake

Vote me in oh tender nation, ” sighed the snake


“I elected you,” cried that nation

“And you’ve bit me even, why?

You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”

“Oh shut up, silly nation,” said the reptile with a grin

“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in

“Vote me in, oh tender nation

Vote me in, for heaven’s sake

Vote me in oh tender nation, ” sighed the snake


Why does Trump keep repeating the lyrics to that Al Wilson song about the ungrateful snake? You don’t have to be Sigmund Freud to suspect that something weird and powerfully unpleasant is going on in the deep dark depths of the President’s unconscious mind.

If you asked Trump, or the average Trump voter, he might tell you he loves “The Snake” because it sums up our predicament with respect to illegal aliens. If we let the damn Mexicans in, they’ll bite us! If we let the damn Muslims in, they’ll blow us up!

But there is a serious problem with that interpretation. Watch closely – if you can stand it – as Trump reads the poem.

Trump obviously relishes the poem. In fact, he relishes it too much. It turns him on.  Ponder the implications of that.

At a deep, unconscious level, it’s obvious that Trump identifies with the snake.  Not the woman. The snake!

The snake, Uncle Sigmund used to say as he chomped on a cigar, is the ultimate phallic symbol. That’s why, in the Garden of Eden, when the snake reared his ugly head, the primordial couple had to cover it up with fig leaves.

Al Wilson’s song is about a male psychopath who seduces and betrays a woman. Confronted, the psychopath excuses himself by saying “you knew I was a bad boy when you let me seduce you, so what did you expect?”

It’s obvious why Trump identifies with the role of psychopathic seducer. What else has he been doing all his life? Using and discarding women. Using and discarding clients. Using and discarding voters.

We knew all about Trump before we took him in.

We knew Trump (in all likelihood) hired prostitutes to piss all over a bed Obama had slept in.

Sex slavery lawsuit links Trump’s Mar-a-Lago to pedophile ring: report

We knew Trump is a serial sexual assault perpetrator, according to a long list of women (and they’re just the ones with the guts to go public.)

We knew Trump was a client of Jeffrey Epstein, the Mossad’s pedophile pimp, and (according to a lawsuit) raped a 13-year-old.

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,’’ Trump told New York Magazine back in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

We knew Trump has been a mob frontman ever since he was “made” by Roy Cohn.

We knew Trump Tower is the Russian-Israeli mob’s New York headquarters.

We knew Trump bought beauty contests so he could do things like barging into Miss Teen USA’s dressing room and then boast about it.

I could go on like this all night. But I shouldn’t have to tell you what you already knew before you took Trump in. Just looking at his demeanor for a couple of seconds should be enough to reveal to anyone with eyes that the current President of the United States is a flim-flam man – an egotistical narcissistic scumbag and borderline psychopath who specializes in “taking in” an ever-growing number of victims.




  1. I did not know Al Wilson’s poem, but Kevin’s version rang a bell, and I knew I’d heard
    the story before. Wikipedia was then able to inform me that the story was already
    known to the ancient Greeks :

    Oscar Brown 1963 and Al Wilson 1968? In the sixties the snake may have referred to
    the dangerous drugs, such as Heroin and LSD that a large number of people started
    using then. In Europe anno 2015 it might refer to the millions of refugees that were
    illegally crossing the borders then. Remember that it is not the snake itself that is
    dangerous : It is his teeth that contain the poison.

  2. Yep, the woman in the story were those Trump voters and hopefuls. And it looks like he will end up being the snake, but isn’t most of Washington – nothing but snakes? Those who really call the shots and put the President they want in the WH use Voters { votes} as there ” alibi”. The President campaigned on promises to his followers and then once in the WH he pulls a snake job. The establishment then uses the media and has them remind everyone that – you- America – voted for the President – he’s your snake – not ours. The cover-ups , alibis are well thought of way before the people will ever figure it out.

  3. A woman found a sick snake beside the road and took it home to cure it. After it was cured it bite the women and while she was dying she asked the snake why it did kill her. So the snake answered, “You knew I am a dangerous reptile and you took me home and healed me despite of your knowledge about me. That is simply my nature to kill”.
