Probing Logic (Limerick)

September 20th, 2018

Apply logic: Who’s likely to lie
About something that most would decry?
The woman who asked
That G-men be tasked
With a probe? Or “NO-FBI Guy?”

Limerick Ode To Christine Blasey Ford

September 19th, 2018

Thanks to Peter Daou for inspiring my limerick with this tweet:

Woman reports sexual assault.
Woman gets slimed and vilified.
Woman gets called a liar and opportunist.
Woman gets death threats and is forced to leave her home.
GOP MEN: Why did she wait to come forward?

When a gal reports sexual assault,
She’s reviled and she’s slimed. Oy gevalt!
She’s sent death threats galore,
As she gets this what-for:
“Why’d you wait to speak out? You’re at fault!”

Donald The Prognosticator (Limerick)

September 19th, 2018

WP Headline: “Trump’s insistence on an upcoming ‘red wave’ could make a blue wave higher”

I enjoy watching Donald emote
About upcoming mid-terms; he’ll gloat
About wins and successes.
My hope and best guess is
His base will think “no need to vote!”

Trump’s Fact-Free Opinions (Quatrain)

September 12th, 2018

Woodward Describes Trump: ‘Don’t Bother Me With Facts, I Have Opinions’

The Donald tells minions
his long-held opinions
(though wholly unbacked)
will trump any fact.

Sue Collins Only Wants To Be “Bribed” By Plutocrats (Limerick)

September 12th, 2018

Headline: “Collins calls crowdfunding to get her to oppose Kavanaugh a ‘bribe'”

Anti-Kavanaugh crowd-funding’s bribery?
That’s Sue Collins’ opprobrious gibery
About voters pro-choice
When raising their voice
About threats based on Kavanaugh’s scribery.

Trump’s Truth Deficit (Limerick)

September 11th, 2018

Here’s a story that many find boring:
The federal deficit’s soaring.
But no doubt Trump will rate it
Fake news and inflated…
As he brags to his fan base adoring.

Trump’s Witch Hunt (Limerick)

September 6th, 2018

“That piece in the Times isn’t mine!”
Trump’s cohorts are standing in line
To deny that it’s theirs
Amid yelling and glares
While, to Donald, each one is a swine.

Trump Fears “Fear” (Limerick)

September 5th, 2018

Woodward’s latest, a Trump book called “Fear,”
Will be seen by his fans as a smear:
“There is nary a good word
Re Trump from Bob Woodward,”
They’ll sneer and they’ll jeer and Bronx cheer.

Sasse’s Trump Critique Lacks Freshness (Limerick)

September 3rd, 2018

Headline: “Republican senator slams Trump’s DOJ attack: US ‘not some banana republic'”

Dear Senator Sasse, words are cheap.
Without action, you’re naught but a creep
Who seeks credit for drivel.
Don’t shirk! Do not shrivel.
Be statesmanlike! Act! Take the leap!

Trump-Tweet Billboard Trolls Ted’s Campaign (Limerick)

September 3rd, 2018

Headline: “Activists to remind Texas about Trump’s ‘Lyin’ Ted’ Cruz tweets with mobile billboard”

The Donald’s campaigning for Cruz.
I’m amused (aren’t you?) by this news:
A huge sign filled with tweets–
Donald’s anti-Cruz bleats–
Will be giving both scoundrels the blues.

Donald’s Bad For Our Health (Limerick)

September 2nd, 2018

Donald Trump and his pals make me roil.
They have soiled us and make my blood boil.
How I pray we soon foil them;
In prison embroil them.
In the meantime, o’er lim’ricks I’ll toil.

Does Trump Despise His Own Supporters? (Limerick)

August 30th, 2018

Headline: “Trump Secretly Despises His Own Supporters”

Donald Trump shows contempt and disdain
For Jeff Sessions; he’ll often complain
That Jeff’s accent and schools
Are both southern. Trump-tools
Are undoubtedly viewed in that vein.

What Trump Would Tweet, If He Could Write Limericks

August 29th, 2018

What Trump Would Tweet, If He Could Write Limericks:

The “Witch Hunt” must end! I’m the best
And most honest, as all should attest.
I’ve drained swamps and dumped regs
And I’ve banished the dregs.
Don’t agree? Then you’re under arrest.

The Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief Strikes Again (Limerick)

August 28th, 2018

Trump’s latest conspiracy theory
(And they all make me terribly weary)
Is that Google is biased;
Bad press appears highest!
Poor Trump — fact-based news makes him teary.

Dishonorable Donald (Limericks)

August 27th, 2018

I rarely agreed with McCain,
And his votes gave me cause to complain.
But Trump NEVER was fit
To clean John McCain’s shit,
So how DARE he treat John with disdain!

**********

I never supported McCain.
My vote McCain never did gain.
But compared to the rest
Of his party, with zest
(Even dead) my support he’d attain.

Resign Already! (Limerick)

August 24th, 2018

Hey Donald, it’s time to show spine.
Save your nation and fam’ly — resign!
You destroy and debase;
You’re an Oval disgrace.
While you’re at it, take Pence, your Veep-swine.

Hatch Still Hitched To Trump (Limerick)

August 24th, 2018

Hatch after Cohen plea deal: ‘I think Trump is a much better person today than he was then.’

Orrin Hatch seems a dignified chap,
But he’s really a Party-first sap.
His virtue is feigned,
His deceit unrestrained.
A Trump lapdog, the man’s full of crap.

The “What’s The Big Deal?” Defense (Limerick)

August 22nd, 2018

Trump’s personal lawyer’s confessed
To committing at Donald’s behest
And direction some crimes,
While his party-mate slimes
Are pretending to be unimpressed.

Trump’s Really Really Extra Bad Day (Limerick)

August 21st, 2018

“Guilty” Manafort ain’t going free,
And Cohen has taken a plea.
So brace for more tweets
Packed with self-serving bleats;
Whiny Trump can’t let anything be.

Rudy’s Nuts and That’s The “Truth”

August 19th, 2018

Rudy Giuliani to Chuck Todd: “Truth isn’t truth.”

Says Rudy, truth doesn’t exist.
(That lesson in law school I missed.)
Seems reality’s dire
Cuz Trump is a liar,
And the truth can no longer assist.
