I was looking at The Word Exchange: Anglo-Saxon Poems in Translation, and came across Alan Jenkins's translation of "Vainglory" into modern English. If I didn't know that the book had been published when "President Donald Trump" was a punchline, and that the poem itself was from a thousand years or so ago, I would think that the description of "vainglory's victim" had been based on you-know-who.
