Limerick Ode To the Destroyer-In-Chief

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Be it treaty or deal, Trump will break it.
There’s a health law folks need? He’ll forsake it.
Then post-wrecking with relish,
He’ll greatly embellish
Praise due him, when others remake it.

Those Military Bereavement Calls (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Making service-death phone calls is tough
And, alas, Donald lacks the right stuff.
So although I believed
He should call the bereaved,
Never mind. They have suffered enough!

What Trump’s Done To Our Nation’s Reputation (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Headline: “Thanks to Trump, America’s word is now worthless”

The word of our nation’s now worthless
Thanks to Donald, whose decency’s birthless.
Despite sweeping appeals,
Trump’s destroyed all our deals.
(So sorry for verse that is mirthless.)

Thanks to the Washington Post’s Paul Waldman for inspiring this limerick!

Limerick Ode To Trump Suck-Ups

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Trump enablers and suck-ups, I trust
You’re aware that your scheme has gone bust.
Trump took YOU for a ride
And has cast you aside.
Donald’s self-lust trumps all. You’re just dust.

Envy, Thy Name Is Donald Trump (Limerick)

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

In a mind that’s severely unsound,
The dangers of envy abound;
That’s why Trump knocks and blocks
Great achievements — Barack’s,
Thereby driving us into the ground.

Limerick Ode To Our Braggart-In-Chief

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

How sad that Trump’s sooooo insecure,
Such a braggart and bully and boor.
Some were hoping he’d grow
In the Oval, but no…
Though there’s MORE of the “man” to endure.

*****

Headline: “A pair of crises tests Trump’s presidential empathy”

Testing Trump’s empathy is like testing a jellyfish’s spine.

*****

Headline “Democrats Seek to Make Ryan a Villain”

Isn’t Ryan ALREADY a VILLAIN?

*****

Like Trump and his supporters, I too miss the good old days — days when somebody else (even Dubya) was occupying the Oval.

*****

“Trump: ‘Disgusting’ press able to write whatever it wants”

Me: Disgusting president able to say whatever he wants.

*****

How I long for the good old days when our policy of containment dealt with foreign enemies; NOT the threat who’s occupying the Oval!

*****

“Jimmy Carter offers to hold peace talks with Kim Jong Un”

How about holding peace talks with Trump/Corker or Trump/Tillerson?

*****

Since Trump’s so obsessed with size (Little Marco, Liddle Bob) from now on I’m calling him Tubby Trump.

*****

“Pence Walks Out of Game Over Anthem Protest”

Headline SHOULD Read: “Pence Wastes Taxpayers’ Dollars Staging Sham Walk-Out”

*****

Offended by birth control and gays? No problem!

Trump/Sessions Doctrine: Religious freedom means freedom to discriminate.

*****

Breaking News: “State Dept: Tillerson did not call Trump ‘moron'”

That’s factually true; he actually called him “fucking moron.”

*****

Headline: “Most Partisans Have Few Friends In Other Party”
Could it be all that stress from dealing with RELATIVES in other party?

*****

Trump’s Small-Minded Name-Calling (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

“Trump Mocks Bob Corker’s Height, Escalating Feud with a Key Republican”

Childish name-calling’s Donald’s delight,
Like his small-minded mock’ry of height.
He’s a YUUUUUGE stature snob,
Which explains “Liddle Bob.”
Trump thinks nicknaming Corker shows might!

Trump/Pence Flag Abuse (Limerick)

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Donald Trump was again on the hunt
For distraction — a tax-funded stunt,
So he told his Veep-peon
To locate a knee on
The ground and to flag the affront.

Taking umbrage at “sins” and “misdeeds”
Is Mike’s hobby; that’s how the guy feeds.
Off he flies to a game
With his pre-ordained claim:
Those Flag-bashing blacks are bad seeds!

Open Limerick To Donald Trump

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Dear Donald, the news isn’t fiction.
So enough with your “made up” depiction!
It’s your tweets that are fake;
You’re a bum, liar, snake!
How I ache for your fel’ny conviction.

Trump v. The Press (Limerick)

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Donald Trump’s always fighting a war on
The media, trying to score on
The press via Twitter.
The fellow’s a bitter
And nasty old man and a MORON!

Donald and Rex (Parody Dialogue)

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Parody Dialogue (I’m almost positive it never took place.)

TRUMP: You’re to hold an immediate press conference and announce that you NEVER called me a “moron.”

TILLERSON: “Never’s” a strong word.

TRUMP: And that of all 50 U.S. presidents, I’m the smartest.

TILLERSON: We’ve been through this before, sir: 50 states. 45 presidents. That’s why we call you “45.”

TRUMP: I know that!

TILLERSON: Anything else sir? Perhaps I should say you have a 180 IQ.

TRUMP: Good idea, but make it 200.

TILLERSON: I was being sarc…

TRUMP: In fact, make it an even 225.

TRUMP: (Turning to General Kelly) You see? Now THAT’S how you negotiate!

The Party Of Crocodile Tears (Limerick)

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

Enough with your “thoughts” and your “prayers,”
Dear GOP pols — no one cares!
All that just-pretend keening
Lacks value and meaning
When the keeners sell NRA wares.
