Mask Mandate Madness (Limerick)

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Headline: “Biden on Trump’s Attack on Him for Not Introducing Mask Mandate: ‘To Be Clear, I Am Not Currently President’”

“Where’s the national mandate for masks
Biden promised to give us?” Trump asks.
For logic, I mourn,
Cuz I sure could have sworn
That’s among Donald’s President-tasks.

Pandemic? WHAT Pandemic? (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Pretends Pandemic Is Over”

Donald Trump and his cronies pretend
That COVID has come to an end.
But magical thinking
Solves nothing: No shrinking
Of death counts — infections ascend.

Golfer-In-Chief (Limerick)

Sunday, May 24th, 2020

“Pious” Trump, did you worship today?
Cuz you surely seemed busy at play
At a golf course you own.
Yet we heard you intone
“OPEN CHURCH!” edicts. (Too swamped to pray?)

Trump’s “Pious” Edict (Limerick)

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

Headline: “Trump slams governors, demands they open houses of worship ‘right now’”

“You must open the churches right now!”
Ordered Trump, as if Donald somehow
Had the right to enforce
Such an edict. Of course
To his base, Trump’s a great sacred cow.

Pusher-In-Chief (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

The Pusher-In-Chief says he’s taking
A dangerous drug. Is he faking?
Since he’s crazy enough
To swallow that stuff,
Shall we swallow the claim Donald’s making?

Trump’s Rush To Reopen (Limerick)

Monday, May 4th, 2020

Donald’s rush to reopen stokes dread
Cuz he’d risk causing many more dead.
Though he claims he’ll abide
By data as guide,
Trump’s metrics are hatched in his head.

Trump Shows How Much He Loves Workers (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

Those who work in a meat packing plant
Are risking their lives, yet there’s scant
White House will to protect them
From ills that infect them.
Trump shields owners. But workers? He shan’t!

Workaholic-In-Chief? (Limerick)

Monday, April 27th, 2020

Headline: “White House officials say Trump works so hard, he often misses lunch”

Poor Donald has no time to munch!
It’s crunch time. He’s busy! No brunch!
He’s not watching TV.
No, not Trump — Busy Bee!
You believe this? Then YOU’RE OUT TO LUNCH!

Dr. Trump Strikes Again (Limerick)

Saturday, April 25th, 2020

To those who still back Dr. Trump,
He apparently thinks you’re a chump,
Who will gladly imbibe
Any crap he’ll “prescribe,”
Be it poison or waste from his rump.

The Purge (Limerick)

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

The president’s loyalty purge
Continues apace. Any urge
To speak truth to Trump’s power
Makes Dower Don glower;
Facts that Trump doesn’t like SHAN’T emerge.

Fauci On Firing Line? (Limerick)

Monday, April 13th, 2020

Headline: “Trump retweets call to fire Fauci amid coronavirus criticism”

Dr. Fauci did something offensive;
He told us the truth — sin expensive!
Breach the loyalty shrine?
Then your job’s on the line
When your boss has derangement extensive.

Enough With Trump’s “New Somber Tone!” (Limerick)

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

Headline: “The Media Once Again Heralds Trump’s New Somber ‘Tone'”

Donald’s “somber?” Oh give me a break!
He’s just sad for himself and can’t fake
Any hint of compassion.
(Preferring to cash in?)
The man is a dangerous snake!

“Trump to New York: ‘Stop complaining'” (Limerick)

Thursday, April 2nd, 2020

Headline: “Trump to New York: ‘Stop complaining'”

Donald Trump to New York: “Stop complaining,
And act grateful, or I’ll be refraining
From sending more aid.
You have thrown too much shade.
My fake sympathy’s rapidly waning.”

Non-Brief-Briefer-In-Chief (Limerick)

Monday, March 30th, 2020

Headline: “As the pandemic rages, the president brags”

Here’s a typical Trump tweet of late:
“My press conf’rence ratings are great!”
On TV, Donald prates
As his ego inflates,
While for briefings from experts we wait.

Health-Menace-In-Chief

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

Headline: “CNN and MSNBC Staff Push Back on Airing Trump’s Coronavirus ‘Lies’”

From the Donald the truth’s rather rare.
Crisis briefings? There’s lying to spare.
Trump is flooding our nation
With false information.
Knock his dangerous rants off the air!

Trump Prioritizes Economy Over Lives (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

Headline: “Trump says he wants the country ‘opened up and just raring to go by Easter,’ despite health experts’ warnings”

The Donald’s inclined to retreat
From the fight for our lives, in defeat:
Forget germs! Fill each church!
Watch his policy lurch,
As he spouts off in presser and tweet.

Put A Sock In It, Donald! (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Donald’s briefings for COVID-19
Should be banished from speaker and screen.
They’re a rally replacement
And lie-packed debasement.
Let the experts (sans Donald!!!) convene.

Under-Deliverer-In-Chief (Limerick)

Friday, March 20th, 2020

Headline: “Over-promising and under-delivering during a crisis is a toxic combination”

Over-promising, under-delivering;
The Donald has citizens quivering
With anger and fear.
His failures are sheer:
Lead to death and more feverish shivering.

Open Limerick To Donald Trump

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Dear Donald stop being a sleaze;
Cease calling the virus “Chinese.”
Do not spread racist blame!
COVID-19’s its name,
Coined by pros; folks with real expertise.

Trump’s Magic Touch (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 17th, 2020

When the Donald appears on tv,
A deep Dow drop’s a fait accompli.
Into freefall it goes,
Which compounds all our woes…
And with bars closed, there’s nowhere to flee.
