A Discordant Note (Limerick)

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Some look at our system with awe,
But the man who keeps breaking the law
Gets to help load the court
With wingnuts who’ll thwart
Donald’s punishment. Rather a flaw!

Trump Incites Violence Against Journalists (Limerick)

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Donald constantly bashes the press,
Which adds to the media’s stress
And imperils their lives;
With his words Trump contrives
To inspire his base to aggress.

That Mitch Is Quite A Stitch! (Limerick)

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

The Week: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that the Senate will ‘vote to confirm’ the successor of outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy ‘this fall,’ adding that ‘it’s imperative that the president’s nominee be treated fairly.'”

Mitch McConnell says Dems must be fair
When it’s time to fill Kennedy’s chair.
Forget fairness; send coal
To the Leader who stole
Our great Court. Tell that thief “This is guerre!”

Not Everyone Deserves Civility (Limerick)

Monday, June 25th, 2018

I endeavor to practice civility
To the best of my practiced ability.
But Trump and his cronies–
All cold-hearted phonies–
Have earned NAUGHT but my heartfelt hostility.

More Melania Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Headline: “Melania Trump promotes ‘kindness, compassion, and positivity’ at youth conference”

Dear Melania: You must be kidding:
Preaching kindness to kids? That ain’t fitting.
But you might tell your spouse
To stop being a louse.
I suspect, though, he won’t do your bidding.

Trump Staffers Have Forfeited Civility (Limerick)

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

If you’re working for Trump, do not snivel
And bitch that we’re not being civil.
Tearing kids from their moms
Without planning or qualms
Proves your pro-fam’ly stance is just drivel.

Shedding No Tears For Trump Staffers (Limerick)

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

A once sure-fire key to success
Was to work in the Oval; largesse
And prestige would soon flow.
Donald’s staff? Ho, ho, ho!
Toxic stress shall be yours — no redress!

Sarah Sanders Hungers For Sympathy (Limerick)

Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

Headline: “Sarah Huckabee Sanders Thrown Out of Virginia Restaurant”

Poor Sarah is very upset:
A rest’rant, Red Hen, would not let
Sanders dine there because
She’s a Trumper. (Applause!)
No cake for her either, I’ll bet!

If Only Trump Could Write Limericks…

Saturday, June 16th, 2018

Headline: “Trump grumbles that North Korea deal not earning wide praise”

My deals are the best! They’re top drawer!
I’ve saved millions from nuclear war.
So where is my credit?
Fake News of course shred it.
I’ll sue till they tell me, “J’adore!”

Child Abuse Backed By The Bible? (Limerick)

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Headline: “Sessions cites Bible to defend immigration policies resulting in family separations”

Donald’s immigrant policy’s rough.
“Tent cities” for kids? Worse than tough!
Then there’s Sessions, who claims
Holy verse backs his aims.
When will God-fearing folks say “Enough!”?

Two-Way Scam? (Limerick)

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

Is the Donald Kim’s dupe? Yes and no;
Trump must know he got naught. Even so,
He pretends to have won
And proceeds to have fun
Scamming fans via victory show.

Putin’s Investment Pays Off (Limerick)

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

The G7 vibe has been blighted,
So Putin is surely delighted.
Trump gives Vlad his best-pal-eyes,
Maligning our allies;
Once united, we’re naught but benighted.

Open Limerick From Donald Trump

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Collusion? You won’t find a trace!
And claims of obstruction? Off base!
My ethics? The highest!
But Mueller is biased.
So I’ll pardon myself, just in case.
