A Question in Verse

I wonder whether there is a chance that President Trump's core base of support might begin to show signs of cracking in the midst of the Coronavirus crisis.

So, for those who might be open to reassessing their support as November approaches, I offer a question in the form of verse for their consideration. Here goes: 

WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUG When is enough enough? When do I yell, "That's it"? At what point will falsehoods, disguising and lying Allow me to say I must quit? When is enough enough? When do I say, "No more"? How much of deceiving, distain and dividing Directs me to close the last door? Now I know there are those who won't change their pose, Who won't bend or don't know how. But there may come a time I can't toe the line, And maybe that time is now. When is enough enough? How willI I finally know? Which cynical acts raising doubts and misleading Convince me that I have to go? When is enough enough? Which is the ending tweet? The one with such rancor, such smallness or preening That finally lets me retreat?  Now I know there are those who won't change their pose. Who won't bend or don't know how. But there may come a time I can't toe the line, And maybe that time is now. When is enough enough? When do I shout, "That's all"? Which rants filled with anger with blaming and shaming Permit my defenses to fall? When is enough enough? What do I need to find? When will preserving, protecting, defending Demand that I now change my mind? Now I know there are those who won't change their pose, Who won't bend or don't know how. But there may come time when I can't toe the line, And maybe that time is now. Good Health and Good Luck Ray
