Don’t Be Duped By Health Bill “Hold-Outs” (Limerick)

June 23rd, 2017

“Can’t remember,” he’ll drawl.
But he’ll somehow recall
That he’s NEVER done anything wrong.

He’s bereft of his once go-to gift
Of BSing his way
Out of any foray.
No more heyday for fraud, lies, and grift!

To sound reason? Your would-be deflection

For colluding to lose the election.

Your return, though you’re still looking pale.
Life without you is cursed,
But your health must come first,
As you help put the Donald in jail.

Voter’s Remorse? (Limerick)

June 6th, 2017

Regs, health care, Paris, his wife’s stupid garden–

“Fake News” Hypocrisy (Limerick)

May 30th, 2017

Trump, who loves to slam “unnamed sources” as “fake news,” retweeted “FOX & friends” today:

Jared Kushner didn’t suggest Russian communications channel in meeting, source says.

It’s “fake news” when they’re used, Donald cries.
And yet sources unnamed
Who’ve loudly proclaimed
Stuff he likes? Those are upright and wise.

Trump’s Sicilian Stamina (Limerick)

May 28th, 2017

Every time I’m reminded that Trump took an electric golf cart ride, instead of strolling with European leaders in Sicily, I laugh out loud.

To take a brief stroll cheek to cheek
With European heads?
Riding golf cart instead’s
Made you look like a peaked, aging sheik.

Kisses Saudi’s derrière,
Shares top secrets with the Russians;
Guess who owns this millionaire.
