Election Stress (Limerick)

November 4th, 2018

Headline: “There’s Plenty To Stress Over In The ‘Anxiety Election'”

I’m nervous! I’m anxious! I’m stressed!
Leave the house? That entails getting dressed!
Pre-Election Day tension;
Fear, anger, dissension!
I might just pull a “Baldwin.” Need rest!

GOP Indecency (Limerick)

November 2nd, 2018

Donald Trump and his GOP peers
Are exploiting our cultural fears,
Using tactics divisive
And vilely derisive;
Throwing decency out on its ears.

Trump v. Ryan

October 31st, 2018

Headline: “Trump Bashes Paul Ryan Over Birthright Citizenship”

The Donald is having a fight
With Paul Ryan, and Ryan is right.
I’m in need of a breather;
Agreeing with either
Is painfully draining. Good night!

How Trump Marks The Market (Limerick)

October 29th, 2018

Headline: “US shares drop on renewed tariff threat against China”

Another bad day for the market!
But needless to say, Trump won’t “Hark!” it.
Dow’s up? He takes credit.
Dow’s down? He will edit
Causation; blame Fed. (He’ll tweet-bark it.)

No Peace Prize For Trump? Womp Womp! (Limerick)

October 28th, 2018

Headline: “Trump Says He Probably Won’t Win Nobel Peace Prize”

Trump predicts he’s unlikely to win
The Peace Prize (Nobel.) Take a spin
On a guess as to why
Trump says HE’S not their guy:
“They don’t want to.” (Cue SAD violin.)

Trump’s “Blame Everyone But Himself” Mentality (Limerick)

October 25th, 2018

“As wave of attempted bombing continues, Trump chooses to blame the victims.”

Who’s to blame for the bombs that were sent
To kill people Trump loves to torment
Via Twitter and speeches?
The victims, Trump screeches.
The Divider-In-Chief must repent!

The Divider-In-Chief Speaks Out Against Division? (Limerick)

October 24th, 2018

“Trump calls for unity after explosive devices sent to prominent Democratic figures”

Donald’s rallies encourage disunity.
He stokes violence with cocky impunity.
So Trump’s just-pretend qualms
When Dems are sent bombs?
Just another PR opportunity!

Leading By Example (Limerick)

October 23rd, 2018

Headline: “Man Cites Trump After Groping Woman on Flight”

Trump’s impact is rather immense,
And it often defies common sense.
Grope a gal sans permission?
No need for contrition;
Just rely on the “Donald Defense!”

Trump’s So “Loves” Our Military (Limerick)

October 19th, 2018

Headline: “Trump says he hasn’t visited troops overseas because he’s ‘very busy’

Why not visit our troops overseas?
Donald’s terribly “busy” – can’t squeeze
In a trip of that kind.
Playing golf’s quite the grind!
Then there’s lying and shooting the breeze.

Trump Fed Up With Fed (Limerick)

October 19th, 2018

Braggart Trump is fed up with the Fed;
It’s “crazy” and “loco,” he said.
When the stock market falls,
It’s his fall guy. What balls!
Blame his tariffs? Ha! Blame Fed instead!

*****

(After I posted the following limerick on Facebook, Ryan Zinke (under pressure from Democrats, reversed himself and pretended that he’d never even fired Mary Kendall.)

Ryan Zinke is Trump’s kinda guy;
The Interior’s leader says “Why
Should I let an I.G.
Investigate me?”
Then he fires her: Kendall, buh-bye!

Melania Trump — Bullying Victim??? (Limerick)

October 15th, 2018

So, who’s “the most bullied?” Melania!
So says Donald Trump’s FLOTUS. What mania!
Yes that poor little rich girl
Is naught but a bitch girl.
My nausea from her just won’t wania.

Kanye and Donald, The Looney-Tunes Twins

October 12th, 2018

Kanye West simply can not refrain
From ranting; he’s soft in the brain.
Why does Trump seem to treasure
That man beyond measure?
Kanye ALMOST makes Donald look sane.

Stealing Georgia? (Limerick)

October 12th, 2018

Kemp’s afraid that more Georgians might vote,
So he blocks them from regist’ring. Note,
He’s intent on defeating
Ms. Abrams by cheating
To keep his Gov prospects afloat.

Feigning Victimization (Limerick)

October 9th, 2018

The GOP’s whining. They’re mad!
What a “sore winner” streak they have had!
They’re “the victims,” they wail
With an “angry mob” tale.
We were “mean” to their dissolute cad!

Stench On The Bench (Limerick

October 8th, 2018

Brett Kavanaugh’s bringing a stench
To what once was a dignified Bench.
Lies and acts dissolute
(Which he’ll loudly dispute)
Make it clear that he’s far from a mensch.

The GOP’s “Confused” Victim Con (Limerick)

October 7th, 2018

Republican pols like to claim
They believe an accuser; their aim
Being sympathy feigned,
Which quickly is drained
By their “victim’s confused; wrong guy” game.

A Man’s “Forceful Denial” Trump’s All??? (Limerick)

October 7th, 2018

Republican pols love to cite
Brett’s “forceful denials” to smite
Sundry claims as untrue.
But since when do a few
Screamed denials prove one side is right?

Republicans Destroy Yet Another Institution (Limerick)

October 6th, 2018

The Dems once again were outplayed
By the GOP’s latest charade.
Our Supreme Court’s despoiled,
Human decency foiled
By the power-crazed Mitch-led brigade.

GOP’s sole goal–
maintain control at all cost–
destroys Supreme Court.

Susan Collins v. Decency (Limerick)

October 6th, 2018

In making her Kavanaugh case,
Susan Collins neglected to face
Brett’s intemperate speech
And behavior; his breach
Of standards judicial was base.

*****

Intemperate Brett
shielded by Mitch and Donald;
Supreme Court sullied.

How Many Lies? (Song Parody Lyrics)

October 3rd, 2018

With Apologies To Bob Dylan:

How many lies can a candidate tell
Before you call him a sham?
How many times must Brett K lose control
Before Lindsey Graham tells him, “Scram!”?
Yes,’n’ how many beers must a nominee drink
Before he blacks out an assault?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
