Mueller Closes In (Limerick)

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Trump distracted at G20:

Mueller’s hunt for the truth’s been protracted,
And the Donald is rather distracted.
Though he’s tried to obstruct,
Trump has failed, so he’s fucked;
Robert Mueller’s still uncounteracted.

The Innocent Don’t Lie (Limerick)

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Headline: “Lies, lies and more lies: This is not how innocent people act”

If Trump isn’t guilty, then why
Does the Donald repeatedly lie?
The same goes for his cronies–
Untruth-spewing phonies–
They’re innocent? Ha! That don’t fly!

Mueller Tightens The Noose (Limerick)

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

Making progress in cooking Trump’s goose.
Can Trump save his own bacon?
The Donald looks shaken.
How long can he stay on the loose?

Trump, Christmas’s Savior? (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Josh Dawsey: ‏ “Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke introduced POTUS by calling him ‘the man who brought Christmas back’ at tonight’s tree lighting ceremony, per pool report.”

That the Prez brought an end to the blight
Of a Christmas that’s gone;
Brought it back — a new dawn…
Will he magic’lly make the day WHITE?

Evergreen No More (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Those poor evergreen trees have been dyed!
They’re the pigment of blood, though they tried
To maintain their true shade.
Putin-red? They need aid!
I’m afraid they are fit to be tied.

Trump V. Yellen (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Headline: “Trump said Janet Yellen wasn’t tall enough to run the Fed: report”

Why did Trump fail to reappoint Yellen?
Now we know, and the reason is tellin’:
She’s too short for the job
At five-three. What a snob!
I am yellin’ for reasons compellin’!

Limerick Ode To An Internet Troll

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Headline: “Donald Trump, Internet troll”

Is the Donald an Internet troll?
He’s embraced a provocative role
Via lump-of-coal tweets
Filled with lies, memes, and bleats
That betray the huge hole in his soul.

Truckling Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

I find myself smiling and chuckling
At this new-to-me word: I’ve learned “truckling”
Means obsequious actions,
Like Donald’s attractions
To tyrants … and bootlicker suckling.

Trump V. Reagan (Limerick)

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018
Headline: “Trump brags, ‘I blow Ronald Reagan away’”
According to Trump, he’s “far greater”
Than Reagan. Was Reagan a traitor,
Like Trump? Surely not,
Nor a petulant tot!
(Though Trump bests him at image inflator.)

Dear Donald (Quatrain)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

No matter how high
you raise your chin,
We see at least three;
You’ll never look thin.

Limerick Ode To Concern Trolls

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Pundits tell us to exercise care
Re subpoenas; that Dems should beware
Of behavior too zealous.
Great caution they’d sell us…
Just like GOP warnings they’d air???

Border Surge Stunt (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Trump’s surge on the border’s a stunt.
He did it as part of his hunt
For votes and support,
Using fear to exhort
His base, keeping bias up front.

Golfer-In-Chief Trump (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

In the course of election-month drama,
Trump had scant time for golf — what a trauma!
Donald’s golf time was sparse
In November — poor arse —
So he managed to tie Prez Obama.

(Inspired by this Washington Post Headline.)

Trump Must Pay! (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

For his crimes and his wrongs, Trump must pay.
It’s essential! We should not delay,
Else the normalization
Of crass aberration
Shall forever remain on display.

Free Market Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Headline: “Trump Threatens GM”

Donald Trump tries to bully and bait
GM’s management. I can not wait
For the free-marketeers
In the GOP spheres
To speak out and the Donald berate.

Trump V. Chief Justice Roberts (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Headline: “Trump Resumes Feud with Chief Justice”

Though the Donald can carp, bash, and mock,
He will find he lacks power to block
Or to fire this man:
Justice Roberts. Can’t ban
The Chief Justice. Trump’s in for a shock.

Trump Gives Thanks (Limerick)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Headline: “Trump says he’s thankful for making a ‘tremendous difference in this country'”

Even people whose life seems to suck
Act grateful today. Some thank luck.
Some thank friends, fam’ly, God.
But a narcissist — odd —
Like Prez Trump thanks himself. What a schmuck!


Alternate, Non-Thanksgiving Holiday Version:

Even people whose life seems to suck
Express gratitude. Some thank their luck.
Some thank friends, fam’ly, God.
But a narcissist — odd —
Like Prez Trump thanks himself. What a schmuck!

Yet Another Episode of “Rules Only Apply To Democrats” (Limerick)

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Headline: Trump Dismisses Ivanka Email Story as ‘Fake News’

Remember Trump’s dominant theme?
“Lock her up!” — a Republican meme.
Where are similar rants
Re Ivanka? Those chants;
Could it be they were only a dream?

Unconstitutional Stench of Whitaker Appointment (Limerick)

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Headline: “Senate Democrats Sue to Block Whitaker Appointment”

Will a judge block Matt Whitaker’s rise
To Acting A.G.? I surmise
His appointment’s unlawful–
Unspeakably awful…
But just fine in Trump-bootlicker eyes.

Limerick Ode to Truth-Decider Trump

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Headline: “Trump Suggests Only He Can Decide the Truth”

What’s true? Donald Trump gets to choose!
That’s just one of his lunatic views.
As a matter of course,
Any claim by a source
That makes Donald look bad is “fake news.”
