Trump’s Bitches And Sulks About Poll Numbers Slump (Limerick)

Sunday, August 18th, 2019

Headline: “Trump Blames ‘Racism Witch Hunt’ for Low Poll Numbers”

Donald’s numbers seem stuck in a slump,
And the media caused it, claims Trump:
It’s “a Racism Witch Hunt.”
(His pass-the-blame glitch-hunt —
Self-pitying tweet from his rump.)

Try To Relax! (Limerick)

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

When pressure has taken its toll,
Relaxation’s a laudable goal.
But getting there’s hard
If your path remains marred
By Donald’s eluding the Hole.

(National Relaxation Day is August 15.)

*********

Strawberries grow wild
in our “little house” front yard.
We’re farmers! Who knew?

“#IMAFARMERLIKENUNES TRENDS AFTER REPORT DEVIN NUNES’ ‘FARM’ IS ABOUT ‘100 SQUARE FEET”

Trump’s “American Carnage” (Limerick)

Sunday, August 4th, 2019

Headline: “So Much for Ending American Carnage”

Seems “American Carnage” is over;
Cuz of Donald, we’re all in the clover.
Yet another vow “kept”
By the crude and inept
Evil-spirited, white-hate-crime drover.

Limerick Ode To The Hate-Crime-Inspirer-In-Chief

Sunday, August 4th, 2019

White Nationalists feel empowered
By the Donald, a bully and coward.
So it’s hardly surprising
That hate crimes are rising.
I can’t wait till the Oval’s been scoured.

Mitch McConnell Miffed at “Moscow Mitch” (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

Some stories cry out for a limerick:

“The hashtag #MoscowMitchMcTreason began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fired back against the nickname ‘Moscow Mitch’ in a fiery speech from the Senate floor.

“MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, a former GOP lawmaker, dubbed McConnell ‘Moscow Mitch’ after McConnell on Friday blocked two election security measures.”

Mitch McConnell’s new name makes him twitch
And complain; he’s been dubbed “Moscow Mitch.”
I’m surprised that he’s peeved
And not rather relieved;
Trump’s received the much worse “Putin’s Bitch.”

Open Limerick To Democratic Pols

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

No matter what Democrats do,
We’ll be labelled a socialist crew.
Don’t deny or adapt;
By such spews, don’t be trapped.
And, instead, to your conscience be true.

The Trumpy Basics (Limerick)

Sunday, July 21st, 2019

There’s no doubt that the Donald’s a racist.
Both he and his base are the basest.
Trump misleads by example.
His evils are ample.
He’s of all of our pols the disgracest.

Trumpy Disavowals (Limerick)

Saturday, July 20th, 2019

Headline: “Trump Disavows His Disavowal”

Stay tuned for Trump’s disavowal of his disavowal of his disavowal.

*****

Disavowals by Trump can’t be trusted.
If needed, they’ll soon be adjusted;
When he faces his base,
Red meat is his ace.
So do NOT be appeased. Be disgusted!

When The President’s A Liar…

Friday, July 19th, 2019

Headline: “Iran denies Trump claim that US destroyed drone over Gulf”

Donald claims that we downed Iran’s drone,
But Iran doesn’t grumble or groan.
No, instead it denies
It was hit in the skies;
When two liars face off … nothing’s known.

Paul Ryan’s Belated Trump Critique (Limerick)

Friday, July 12th, 2019

Headline: “Paul Ryan: Trump ‘didn’t know anything about government’ and ‘I wanted to scold him all the time'”

Craven Ryan is finally “brave,”
Slamming Donald, the President/Knave.
When it mattered, he’d cower.
Now Paul’s out of power;
Missed his op to stop Donald’s crime wave.

What I Won’t Call Donald Trump (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019

I’m often inclined to admonish
The Donald; his actions astonish.
Trump’s the King of “Fake News,”
But I’d never accuse
Him of being the slightest bit “donnish.”

Thanks to Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day feature, I now know that “donnish” means bookish and pedantic.

A Trumpian 4th (2-Verse Limerick)

Thursday, July 4th, 2019

Donald’s pulling out all of the stops,
Treating tanks and our troops just like props;
Using taxpayer cash,
He’s subverting this bash
To flex his tyrannical chops.

Trump’s despoiling the 4th; he’s hell-bent
On saluting himself; this event
Is to boost reelection.
He fears our rejection.
Let’s make sure that to prison he’s sent.

Donald’s “She’s Not My Type” Defense (Limerick)

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

Headline: “Trump’s repeated defense against assault accusations: call the accuser unattractive”

Donald’s message: I’m very selective
When viewing a victim, prospective,
So her rape claim’s a lie,
And it’s obvious why:
She isn’t “my type!” She’s defective!

Trump v. The Climate

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

Trump v. Climate

Limerick Ode To The Campaigner-In-Chief

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

Donald’s running again? What a “shock!”
His “relaunch” (so-called) is a crock.
He treats his campaign
As his job. That’s been plain
From the day of his swearing-in squawk.

If Trump Could Write Limericks

Thursday, June 13th, 2019

If Trump could write limericks:

Dear nations, both friendly and not,
I need dirt. Send me all that you’ve got.
You’ll be might’ly rewarded,
If Dems are all thwarted.
Name your price. I am easily bought.

Open Limerick To Joe Biden

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

I joked, yesterday, that because Biden called Trump an “existential threat,” dictionaries were bracing for the existential threat of site crashes.

But apparently I’m not quite through with the topic. So here’s my limerick:

Dear Joe: Dumping Donald’s essential.
His evil’s widespread — pestilential.
He’s a “threat existential,”
His wrongs, consequential.
But the use of big words? Unprudential!

Press Coverage Matters (Limerick)

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

New York Times Headline: “Elizabeth Warren Has Lots of Plans. Together, They Would Remake the Economy.”

Some regard Warren’s planning with boredom.
Others cheer her. Some say: “Can’t afford ’em!”
Hill had detailed plans too
But, alas, few folks knew
Cuz the media mostly ignored ’em.

Yet Another “Great” Donald Deal (Limerick)

Saturday, June 8th, 2019

I didn’t know Sen. Schumer had such a flair for sarcasm. Check out his tweet:

This is an historic night!

@realDonaldTrump has announced that he has cut a deal to “greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”

Now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future.

Donald makes a big deal about deals;
A great deal of the time, Donald feels
The need to go bragging
Re super deal-snagging…
So his base will think failures are steals.

Those Taxing Tariffs (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

Headline: “Trump’s tariffs might amount to the biggest U.S. tax hike since the 1980s”

And now my two-verse limerick:

A tariff is really a tax
That Trump’s hitting us with to the max,
Just to make his base think
Trump the “tough guy” won’t blink.
Dear voters, please give him the ax.

Donald counts on his fans not to know
That tariffs are taxes, and so
He keeps raising those taxes.
Here’s hoping the ax is
About to deliver its blow.
