For Republicans, Free Speech Is In The Ear Of the Hearer

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

Headline: “G.O.P. Bills Target Protesters (and Absolve Motorists Who Hit Them)”

Punish protestors (those who hate Trump)
And it’s fine if cars give ’em a bump.
Drive ’em all out of town.
Even run ’em all down.
That’s the GOP creed on the stump.

GOPers Target Maxine Waters

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

Censure Waters? That sure takes some nerve!
But Republicans tried it with verve.
Though they’re outraged (they claim)
By her words, they di’n’t blame
Trump for HIS. (They grade Trump on a curve.)

Trump’s Donation Scam (Limerick)

Monday, April 5th, 2021

Headline: “How Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations”

Donald Trump raked in money; a mint
From his fans, who had nary a hint
Of the sums they had given.
To shock they were driven
By boxes (pre-checked) and small print.

Sidney Powell’s Risible Defense (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021

The basis for Sidney Powell’s defense in the Dominion defamation case is that her claims about Dominion were too wacko to be believed by reasonable people.

Sidney Powell’s defense to the suit
For defaming Dominion’s a hoot:
Since her claims re Dominion
Were dubious opinion,
The judge has to boot the dispute.

Malaise At Mar-a-Lago? (Limerick)

Sunday, March 21st, 2021

Mar-a-Lago is partially closed,
Due to Covid. No shock: Trump’s opposed
To the wearing of masks;
In rebellion, he basks.
The result? His club’s rep has been hosed.

The Bullies’ Bullseye On Asian-Americans (Limerick)

Thursday, March 18th, 2021

You’re of Asian descent? Then watch out!
There’s a bullseye on you, without doubt,
Placed by Trump and his cronies —
Those bigots and phonies.
All it took was a “Kung Flu” Trump shout.

The Meddling “Former Guy” (Limerick)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

“Republicans are sounding the alarm that his attempts to meddle in primaries could hurt the party’s efforts to win back the majority”

GOPers are worried and fretting;
They’re afraid that Trump’s meddling’s abetting
The Dems in the House.
For they bet on a louse,
Whose candidate picks have them sweating.

What Will It Take For Pence To Stop Repeating Trump’s Lies? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

My latest limerick was inspired by a recent Mike Pence op-ed in The Daily Signal. Here’s how he begins: “After an election marked by significant voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law, I share the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Dear Mike Pence, I am forced to surmise
That you haven’t stopped backing Trump’s lies.
He endangered your life!
Yet your statements are rife
With Trump myths. That’s bizarre and unwise.

Enough With “The Former Guy!” (Limerick)

Monday, March 1st, 2021

Is Donald a boor, or a bore?
How ’bout both? Yes, forget either/or,
For at CPAC his game
Was old lies, hate, and blame.
Don’t need more of the same toxic snore!

Postmaster General DeJoy Generates The Opposite Of Joy (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

Headline: “‘Get Used To Me’: Defiant DeJoy Previews More Cost-Cutting Measures”

“Get Used To Me!” taunts Gen. DeJoy,
Whose ploys appear meant to destroy
The deliv’ry of mail,
Which now moves like a snail.
He treats mail like a worthless old toy.

Budget Director Blues (Limerick)

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

Neera Tanden’s Budget Director nomination appears doomed because … “MEAN Tweets!” Double standard, much?

Trump’s Tweeting career was extensive,
His Twitter posts mean and offensive.
Did this mar the support
From his party? (Loud snort!)
But those “MEAN” Tanden tweets? They’re expensive!

“Cancel Culture” Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Thursday, February 18th, 2021

“Cancel Culture’s” an epithet (new)
That Republicans relish and spew.
Yet they’ll censure and scold
GOPers who’re bold;
Who vote “guilty” re Trump … though it’s true.

A Nickname For Trump? (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 17th, 2021

Headline: “In televised town hall, Biden says he wants to end national fixation on ‘the former guy'”

Though it’s boring and lacking in bite,
Biden’s nickname for Trump seems just right;
It’s “the former guy.” Wow!
Biden, please take a bow
For a name Trump will hate, cuz it’s trite.

Obsequious Republicans (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2021

GOPers are weary and sick
Of defending that scurrilous Dick.
Yet they’re loath to abort
Their debased Trump support.
Are they cowards, or frauds? Take your pick!

Two-Faced Mitch (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2021

Mitch is trying to have it both ways:
First he joins in the “Don’t Convict!” nays.
Then he spouts a critique
Of Trump’s actions, with pique.
For hypocrisy (rank!) he wants praise?

In Acquitting Trump, GOP Senators Acquit Themselves Poorly (Limerick)

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

Trump’s acquittal by GOP wimps
Gave us more than a generous glimpse
At pols who enrolled
In the “Trump Cult” and sold
Off their souls; fawning wretches and simps!

Yet Another “If Trump Could Write Limericks”

Thursday, February 11th, 2021

With Trump finally out of office, I thought I was done writing “If Trump Could Write Limericks.” But apparently not.

So my crowd got a bit out of hand?
No big deal! I would never command
Them to kill, even maim,
And my language was tame.
This impeachment hoax ought to be banned!

Them’s Fightin’ Words! (Limerick)

Tuesday, February 9th, 2021

Headline: “Trump’s impeachment lawyers argue he only wanted supporters to ‘fight’ in ‘the figurative sense'”

Trump repeatedly told his mob “Fight!”
But he claims that he never meant “Smite!”
Funny thing though: his crowd
(MAGA-Cultish and Proud)
Clearly knew how to earn Trump’s delight.

Lou Dobbs Loses Job (Limerick)

Monday, February 8th, 2021

Headline: “Why Fox News canceled Lou Dobbs”

Lou Dobbs has been ousted by Fox
Cuz a lawsuit has Fox in a box.
Will Jeanine and Maria
Be next? Great idea!
May Smartmatic clean all their clocks!

Revenge Tour For Trump (Limerick)

Saturday, February 6th, 2021

Headline: “Trump Plotting Petty Revenge Tour Against Republicans Who Abandoned Him…”

Donald’s planning a punishment-tour
Because Trump is a boor to his core,
And his thirst for attention,
Revenge, and dissension
Can’t resist retribution’s allure.
