Garland v. Trump

August 11th, 2022

Dear Donald, it seems that your bluff
Has been called, and in you’re in quite the huff.
Garland’s move to unseal
That warrant? Big deal!
Seems you’ve shot yourself right in the duff.

Trump’s Trumped-Up Victimhood (Limerick)

August 11th, 2022

Donald’s so-called “unjustified raid”
Was approved by a judge. Don’t be played!
T’s were crossed. I’s were dotted.
His crimes have been spotted.
Our nation by Trump’s been betrayed.

My Open Limerick-Letter To Would-Be Trump Attorneys

August 9th, 2022

Trump’s besieged and (I’ve heard) on the hunt
For lawyers to take on the stunt
Of defending his ass.
Dear Esqs, you should pass…
Or at least get full payment up front.

The Grifter Strikes Again (Limerick)

August 8th, 2022

Dear Donald, I see that once more,
You’re begging for dollars galore.
I’m amused that you claim
It’s for lawsuits. How lame!
Bills from lawyers are bills you ignore.

Boris v. Trump (Limerick)

July 7th, 2022

Boris Johnson’s resigned, at long last.
But at least he admits his time’s passed.
He’s not tried to incite
Armed mobs just for spite…
Or promised loyal felons a blast.

Pence Ain’t A Saint (Limerick)

June 29th, 2022

Headline: “Pence: ‘We must not rest’ until abortion is outlawed in every state”

On One/Six, Pence behaved like a man;
He helped scuttle Trump’s scurrilous plan.
But enough with the praise!
Re abortion, he’d raze
Women’s rights with a nationwide ban.

“Thanking” Trump For Dobbs (Limerick)

June 26th, 2022

Headline: “Trump takes credit for Dobbs decision but worries it ‘won’t help him in the future'”

The Donald takes credit for Dobbs.
Does he merit such “credit?” Yes, gobs!
The three judges he picked
For SCOTUS have kicked
Gals back ages … and that was their jobs.

My Roe v. Wade Rant (2-Verse Limerick)

June 24th, 2022

Five SCOTUS extremists decreed
In a dastardly GOP screed
That Roe v. Wade’s dead.
So it’s “Off with her head”
For pro-choicers, no matter the need.

If you value our lost right to choose,
You must vote; forget whining and booze.
Your life’s on the line!
Dump the GOP swine
And make sure all Republicans lose!

Dear Trump: Stop Spamming Me! (2-Verse Limerick)

June 4th, 2022

Dear Trump, I’m confused. Pleased explain
How I got on your list. It’s insane
That you think I would fall
For your bullshit. What gall!
Never try to exploit me again!

I’m most certainly NOT a supporter.
I would much rather be a Trump thwarter.
Save your “donor wall” space
For your idiot base
Who’ll fork over to YOU their last quarter.

Mother’s Day Redefined

May 8th, 2022

Mother’s Day Redefined:

When Supreme Court Justices and other misogynist Republicans celebrate women being FORCED to be mothers.

******

Chief Justice Roberts should focus less on the leak & more on the “I believe in stare decisis” perjurers sitting on his bench.

Pelted With Produce?

May 3rd, 2022

Headline: “Donald Trump worried ‘dangerous’ fruits could be thrown at him by protesters, a new deposition reveals”

Sounds unlikely, unless they’re Italian opera fans.

Elon’s Musky Madness (Limerick)

April 26th, 2022

There’s a new Social Media threat
Making fans of democracy fret:
Under Musk, Trumpy lies
And misinfo will rise;
A calamitous “Net” blow — net-net.

Florida’s CRT Cops Strike Again (Limerick)

April 17th, 2022

Headline: “Florida says it rejected math textbooks for referring to critical race theory”

Frenzied Florida’s CRT-craze
Is now targeting math books. This phase
Features conjured up claims
Of doctrinaire aims;
Textbooks banned in a bigoted blaze.

Supreme Hypocrisy (Limerick)

March 26th, 2022

Dana Milbank’s column about “counterfeit commoners” inspired this two-verse limerick:

With hypocrisy Cotton’s replete,
As he trashes the “legal elite”
At Judge Brown Jackson’s hearing,
His rhetoric searing
With “Fake Commoner” Cotton deceit.

It appears that Tom Cotton forgot
His two Harvard degrees. Oh, what rot!
One’s in gov., one’s in law.
Is “eliteness” a flaw?
Then he has it, which hampers his plot.

Jackasses Attack Jackson (Limerick)

March 24th, 2022

The Republicans’ racist attacks
On Brown Jackson ignored all the facts.
And their dog whistle smears
Even pissed off some peers:
Sasse assessment? “Jackassery” acts.

Limerick Ode To Governor Ron “Don’t Say Gay” DeSantis

March 12th, 2022

gay GAY gay gay GAY gay gay GAY,
gay GAY gay gay GAY gay gay GAY.
gay GAY gay gay GAY,
gay GAY gay gay GAY,
gay GAY gay gay GAY gay gay GAY.

This And That

March 8th, 2022

Headeline: “No Big Macs for Putin as McDonald’s Halts Russia Operations”

(Which probably puts the kibosh on Trump’s visit to pal Putin)

*****

Yesterday temps got to 67 in NYC. Tomorrow they’re predicting snow.

I’m not sure what’s more erratic these days, weather or mail.

State Of The Union Madness (Limerick)

March 1st, 2022

I’m bracing myself for the post-SOTU madness:

The “State of the Union’s” tonight,
And I hope Biden’s poised for a fight.
Cuz no matter his words,
He’ll be pill’ried by turds;
Spiteful GOP herds love to smite.

Probing Limerick

January 27th, 2022

Headline: “Plea Deal for Man Involved In Matt Gaetz Probe”

If a man “dates” a minor, then smite ’im,
And kindly don’t call them an “item.”
An underaged girl
Shouldn’t be given a whirl…
And the law should step in and indict ’im.

Book Purge Surge (Limerick)

January 17th, 2022

Headline: “Book bans are back in style”

Banning books is, alas, back in fashion;
GOPers suppress them with passion.
The same folks who maintain
“Cancel-culture’s” a bane…
Purge and “burn,” turning book lovers ashen.
