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!

Manchin Throws His Weight Around (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

Headline: “Manchin flexes muscle in 50-50 Senate”

Joe Manchin’s extortionate power
In wielding his vote makes me glower.
He’s unreas’nably bold
With threats to withhold
Key votes, hoping Biden will cower.

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!

Callous Cruz (Limerick)

Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Did the frigid Ted Cruz flee his state
For a resort? (Cancún!) Yes, damn straight!
Let someone else master
The Texas disaster!
Why should Ted freeze his ass or his pate?

Anti-Reg Libertarian Types Liberate Texans from Heat (Limerick)

Friday, February 19th, 2021

Folks are freezing in Texas, alas,
Despite plenty of fuel — oil and gas.
Why’d their pow’r grid collapse?
Anti-reg types played craps;
Now their citizens suffer en masse.

“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.

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.”

Dear Republicans (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

Get over the heinous attack
On the Capitol? Sorry, you’re wack!
If that’s your advice;
That the Dems should play nice
And forget it, then you don’t know jack!

Tuberville’s Lame Excuse (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

Senator Tommy Tuberville’s excuse for not commenting on allegations against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is beyond laughable:

Sen. Tuberville won’t give his views
On Rep. Greene. Why does Tommy refuse?
Here’s his risible reason:
The weather this season
Has kept him from reading the news.

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.
