Joe Exotic, the famed and currently incarcerated subject of the wildly popular Netflix docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” has an interesting take on who he would want to portray him if a screenplay on his life story ever made it to production -- and his list is very short indeed: Donald Trump
"Trump is one crazy mother trucker," quipped Joe. "My place ended in ruin, just he's done to the country. My life's gone to hell, and that's the story of everything that crazy bitch has touched."
Maybe Joe is on to something -- because when one read's Emmett Lee Dickinson's poem "A little Madness on TV" (below on the left), one can't tell if it sounds like it's about Joe Exotic or Donald Trump.
Dickinson's poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "A little Madness in the Spring" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
A little Madness on TV
Is binging whole the Tiger King,
Oh Lord he is a Clown –
Who watches this horrendous scene –
This whole Experiment of Greed –
A whole new Twilight Zone!
By Emily Dickinson:
A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown –
Who ponders this tremendous scene –
This whole Experiment of Green –
As if it were his own!
