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!

Trump’s Case, In Brief (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

Trump denies he incited a coup;
Says his voter fraud claims are all true;
And rejects any blame.
But the rioters claim:
“We did JUST what Trump told us to do.”

My Limerick Question Of The Day

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Embracing the fringe politicians
(Pols enamored of lies and seditions)
Is the GOP’s course.
Will this soon be its source
Of failing electoral missions?

Republican Appeasement (Limerick)

Monday, February 1st, 2021

GOPers, dishonest and lazy,
Keep appeasing the evil and crazy;
They excuse acts and views
Of both Trump cult and Qs.
That’s why GOP prospects look hazy.

Kevin McCarthy Makes Nicey-Nicey With Trump (Limerick)

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

Headline: “McCarthy Kisses Trump’s Ring After Briefly Acknowledging Ex-POTUS’s Role In Insurrection”

Rep. McCarthy’s still kissing the ring
Of the Donald — a very odd thing.
You’d expect some disquiet
From Donald Trump’s riot…
Which endangered both left and right wing.

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!

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.

The Stubborn Myth Of The Stolen Election (Limerick)

Sunday, December 27th, 2020

Donald’s myth of a stolen election
Lives on, though debunked; no injection
Of fact removes fiction.
Despite contradiction,
Convictions spurn falsehood detection.

Madman-In-Chief (Limerick)

Friday, December 25th, 2020

Trump’s failures have driven him mad,
So he’s NOT merely downcast or sad.
Filled with grievance-fueled spite,
Donald spoils for a fight.
What a turmoil and blight-causing cad!

The Unpersuadables (Limerick)

Monday, December 21st, 2020

Headline: “Engaging With Trump’s Die-Hard Supporters Isn’t Productive”

Engaging with Donald Trump backers
Is as fruitless as talking to hackers.
Any woman or man
Who remains a Trump fan
Is (like Trump) indisputably crackers.

A Homeless Ex-President? (Limerick)

Saturday, December 19th, 2020

Headline: “Mar-a-Lago neighbors to Trump: Spend your post-presidency elsewhere”

Dear Don, you can’t live in your club;
Your neighbors say “Nyet!” Quite the snub!
Mar-a-Lago is out
Cuz you promised, you lout,
That you’d never move back. There’s the rub!
