A Quintet Of Limericks & Some Quips about Trump, the NFL, Kneeling, & Fake Patriotism

*****
Dear Donald: Ballplayers have a 1st amendment right to peacefully protest racism, just as you have a 1st amendment right to make an ass of yourself on Twitter.

*****

You must stand for the flag; don’t go kneeling!
Such a “diss” at a game sends Trump reeling.
How he’ll rant and he’ll rage!
I suspect at his age
Trump can’t bend without fainting or squealing.

*****

Neo-Nazis can protest at will,
Wielding arms as they menace and kill.
That’s just fine with Prez Trump.
But black athletes? He’d dump
’Em for kneeling; he treats ’em like swill.

*****

Trump Tweet: “The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!”

And now some edits for accuracy:

“The issue of kneeling has EVERYTHING to do with race. It is about respect for TRUMP! NFL must respect ME!”

*****

Being Jewish, I know little about kneeling … except that it hurts.

Why is church kneeling good, but field kneeling a “diss?”

*****

Trump’s been having one hell of a day;
Each athlete and flag-tweet foray
Ran aground with a thud,
Like turds in the mud.
Former allies are fleeing him. YAY!

*****

I’ve been waiting anxiously for evidence of Trump-voter remorse.

But I never expected it to come from Trump-donor team owners!

******

Despite Kelly’s strong will and precision,
The Donald needs MORE supervision;
He’s divisive and worse.
Hence my need to write verse
And provide him with well-earned derision.

*****

I can’t catch. I can’t run. I can’t throw.
I’ve no clue where those ball things should go.
But the Donald’s a tease,
And his sports-feud re knees
And flags makes me yearn to go pro.

*****
