Parlez-vous Parler? (Limerick)

Wednesday, January 20th, 2021

Parler’s back, but its site is awry.
Tech troubles abound, as folks try
To communicate there;
A disheart’ning affair,
If you’re seeking a safe place to lie.

Limerick Duo, Celebrating Trump’s Departure and Biden’s Inauguration

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

Dear Donald, good riddance, buh-bye!
I cheer your departure. Here’s why:
You’re a liar and thief.
You’ve caused death, mayhem, grief,
And you’ve left our great nation awry.

Dear Joe Biden, the challenge you’re facing
Is immense, cuz the man you’re replacing
Has done infinite harm,
But we’re betting the farm
On YOU to erase the debasing.

Limerick Ode To the “Unity” Community

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

I cringe at each “unity” call
From Donald’s defenders. What gall!
Still making excuses
For Donald’s abuses,
They’re enablers and hypocrites all!

Three House Democrats Catch Covid-19 While Sheltering With Republican Mask-Refuseniks (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

Headline: “Three Democrats Now Have COVID-19 After Republicans Refused To Wear Masks During The Capitol Attack”

Three Democrats, trapped in tight space,
Taking refuge from Trump’s raging base,
Were infected; made ill
By GOP swill
Who refused to wear masks — a disgrace!

Capitol Offense (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

Trump This Morning:

Q: “What is your role in what happened at the Capitol? What is your personal responsibility?”

President Trump: “If you read my speech…people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.”

The Donald is NOT done aggressin’;
Instead, he continues expressin’
A contrition-free stance.
Admit fault? Not a chance!
It’s so good to see Trump’s learned a lesson.

Banished and Bereft (Limerick)

Saturday, January 9th, 2021

Donald Trump doesn’t “get” the to-do;
So WHAT if he triggered a coup!
But he’s run out of luck
And for once he can’t duck
The backlash from acts he should rue.

Donald Trump, who’s a bully full-blown,
Lost his bullhorn; his phone’s a mere phone.
No more weapon of choice —
Just a much-weakened voice;
He’s bereft of his base and alone.

Banned At Last (Limerick)

Friday, January 8th, 2021

Donald Trump has been banished from Twitter,
And Donald’s undoubtedly bitter.
His corrupt tweet decorum
Has cost him this forum.
Now how’ll he pass time on the shitter?

Ciao, Elaine Chao! (Limerick)

Thursday, January 7th, 2021

Headline: “Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is first Trump Cabinet member to quit after riot”

To resign from the Cab’net this late
Isn’t noble or worthy or great.
It’s a way to survive
And avoid “25.”
A cowardly action? Damn straight!

Enough “25th” and “Impeachment” Talk; It’s Time For Action! (Limerick)

Thursday, January 7th, 2021

Trump’s to blame for the Cap’tol attack;
He incited his mutinous claque,
And still shows no remorse.
His sedition, perforce,
Deserves more than mere bluster and yack!

Georgia On His Mind (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 5th, 2021

Headline: “Judge Shoots Down Last-Ditch Trump Lawsuit Looking to Overturn Georgia Loss”

Poor Donald keeps losing in court;
Filing spurious suits is his forte.
Each “disgraceful” court loss
Makes him bitter and cross,
As Trump’s time in the Oval grows short.

Dishonorable Honors (Limerick)

Monday, January 4th, 2021

A Medal of Freedom for Jordan
And Nunes? More fitting’s a warden;
It is past time to dump
Them in prison with Trump,
For a cell’s what the three should be stored in.
