DC’s TMZ’d (Limerick)

Thursday, March 21st, 2019

Headline: “Trump Brought TMZ Politics to Washington”

When Trump went from prez-nominee
To our president, most hoped he’d be
A new man; changed, matured
By the job he’d secured.
But it’s Donald who’s altered DC.

GOP Still Stooping To Trump’s Level (Limerick)

Thursday, March 21st, 2019

Donald’s John McCain smears are obscene,
And pettiness spews from his spleen.
Yet few GOPers
Denounce him, as fleers
From decency sink to his mean.

The Ultimate Diss (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

CNN Headline: “Nancy Pelosi: ‘I’m not for impeachment,’ slams Trump as ‘not worth it'”

That diss! How did Nancy unearth it?
It’s the ultimate slam! Did she birth it?
Despite fervent beseeching,
She’s anti-impeaching.
Her reason? Trump just is “not worth it.”

Is Golf A Path To Fitness? (Limerick)

Sunday, March 10th, 2019

You’ve decided it’s time to commit
To golfing. Your goal? Getting fit.
But is golf the right fix?
Take a look at Trump pics.
I suspect playing golf isn’t it.

Trump Dumps Yet Another Press Chief (Limerick)

Saturday, March 9th, 2019

Headline: “Instead of a New Press Chief, Trump Could Try Committing Fewer Crimes”

Trump’s approach to bad press isn’t wise;
He blames staffers, replacing the guys
And the women whose quest
Is good press. I suggest
Cutting down on his crimes and his lies.

“Otherwise Blameless?” (Quatrain)

Saturday, March 9th, 2019

Headline: “How could anyone think Paul Manafort lived an ‘otherwise blameless’ life?”

NOT a limerick:

Judge Ellis while sentencing Paul
Said his life has been “otherwise blameless.”
But that claim just ain’t true. Not at all!
Seems both Paul and Judge Ellis are shameless.

Limerick Ode To Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Friday, March 8th, 2019

Justice Ginsburg’s birthday is coming up on March 15th, and I couldn’t resist writing her a limerick. In fact, I even snail-mailed her a copy. Remember snail-mail?

Here it is:

Happy birthday dear Ruth. You’re the best!
You have met ev’ry challenge and test
With zest, brains, and class,
Plus just enough brass…
While the President feathers his nest.

Open Limerick to the Flag-Humper-in-Chief

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

Joy Behar, on Trump at CPAC: “If he hugged that flag any closer he would have to pay it hush money.”

Dear Donald, when out on the stump
Please don’t lunge at our flag and then hump.
Such an act’s unbecoming
And vulgar — mind-numbing.
What’s your next flag-act? Taking a dump?

The Harasser-in-Chief Feels Harassed (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

Headline: “Trump accuses Nadler of harassment in wide-ranging probe”

Poor Donald is feeling harassed;
All he’s done in his crime-laden past
And as president’s being
Examined. We’re seeing
The House do its job at long last.

Trump at CPAC (Limerick)

Saturday, March 2nd, 2019

Sub-headline: “In an epic two-hour speech, the president claims the Russia probes are ‘bullshit’ as he regaled a conservative crowd after his North Korea summit failure.”

At CPAC Trump ranted and raved;
In a two-hour speech he behaved
Like a fellow who’s filled
With self-pity and thrilled
With his wing-nutty forum depraved.
