Trump Tweetsploits London Terrorist Attack (Limerick)

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

In a tweet-storm volcanic and manic,
The Donald tells voters to panic.
Then he goes out to golf,
Leaving sane folks to rolf;
The “man” in the Oval’s satanic.

Limerick Ode To Trump’s Phantom Tax Bill

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Add this Trump “tax bill” lie to your list
Of assertions deservedly dissed:
It’s “in Congress” and “moving
Along,” he says proving
Non-bills can trump those that exist.

Trump Says “No You Can’t” to the “Yes We Can” President

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Whatever Obama did, I’ll wreck it bigly.
The guy ain’t American. I’ve got the proof.
Regs, health care, Paris, his wife’s stupid garden–
He dissed me in public. His legacy’s POOF!

“Fake News” Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Trump, who loves to slam “unnamed sources” as “fake news,” retweeted “FOX & friends” today:

Jared Kushner didn’t suggest Russian communications channel in meeting, source says.

“Unnamed sources are bad! They spread lies.”
It’s “fake news” when they’re used, Donald cries.
And yet sources unnamed
Who’ve loudly proclaimed
Stuff he likes? Those are upright and wise.

Trump’s Sicilian Stamina (Limerick)

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Every time I’m reminded that Trump took an electric golf cart ride, instead of strolling with European leaders in Sicily, I laugh out loud.

Mr. Trump, were you feeling too weak
To take a brief stroll cheek to cheek
With European heads?
Riding golf cart instead’s
Made you look like a peaked, aging sheik.

He’s BACK! (Limerick)

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

The Donald’s back bashing the press
After making a terrible mess
Of his meetings with leaders,
Relieving his readers
Of tweet-storm withdrawal distress.

Trump Quatrain

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Donald glares and lectures NATO,
Kisses Saudi’s derrière,
Shares top secrets with the Russians;
Guess who owns this millionaire.

Trump’s Con Man Budget (Limerick)

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

A TWO trillion dollar mistake?
Really more, cuz the “growth gain” is fake.
But such cons are expected
When crooks are elected.
Please don’t tell me you STILL like that snake.

How’s That Stamina Of Yours, Little Donald? (Limerick)

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Headline of the Day from (of all places) The New York Post: “Exhaustion is to blame for Trump’s ‘Islamic terror’ comment: aide.”

“Low-Energy” Donald is beat.
His stamina’s burned by the heat.
He’s tired and mired
In shame; having fired
James Comey, he’s bound for defeat.

Trump Gets The Saudi Royal Treatment (Limerick)

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

The Saudis are using all means
To hail Trump, as he swaggers and preens;
To achieve what they need,
They perceive they must feed
Regal sheen to King Donald of Queens.

Say It’s Not So, Joe! (Limerick)

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Joe Lieberman? FBI head?
Please tell me this rumor is dead.
Law enforcement skills? None!
Built-in conflicts? A ton!
Might as well name dear Jared, instead.

Our “Woe Is Me” President (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

The Donald pretends to be gritty,
But instead he is filled with self-pity.
“I’m the worst-treated pol
In his’try,” he’ll bawl.
Trump’s dignity (bitty) ain’t pretty.

On The Other (Very Tiny) Hand (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

At the risk of appearing too dense,
I must ask if it makes any sense
To impeach Donald Trump,
If success means we’d jump
To a Theocrat President Pence.

Trump’s Keen Mastery Of Economics (Limerick)

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Keeping a straight face when you interview Trump must be tough … especially for The Economist team; Trump told them he “came up with” the phrase “prime the pump,” and wanted to know if they’d heard it before and understood what it meant.

There once was a wordsmith named Trump,
Who claimed to have coined “prime the pump,”
A phrase that pre-dates
Donald’s birth. Sorry mates,
But his brain remains lodged in his rump.

Comey’s Former Subordinates NOT Happy (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

Many FBI agents are pissed
Cuz their boss Mr. Comey’s been dissed;
Donald dumped the man rudely
Not shrewdly, but crudely…
Via pretext that’s eas’ly dismissed.

What Ever Happened To Sessions’ Recusal? (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

A serious, honest perusal
Of the pledge Sessions made of recusal
Shows him wrong to assist
Getting Comey dismissed.
Recusal required refusal.

Trump, The Nixonian (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Seems Donald was getting morose
Cuz Comey was getting too “close.”
So Trump’s crew took their cues
And concocted a ruse
To dismiss him. A Cover-up Gross!

Trump Exercises His Right Not To Exercise (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

A headline like this one demands a limerick: “Donald Trump thinks exercise will kill you.”

Will exercise kill you? The guy
In the Oval believes it. That’s why
Donald looks like he looks.
(I’d been blaming his cooks.)
This explains why to VEEP Pence said “AYE!”

AWOL Trump? (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

According to CNN, Trump’s been out of sight for five straight days.

Dear Donald: You sick? We’re concerned
Cuz for five lengthy days you have spurned
All public events.
Are you feverish? Tense?
Simply taking a respite unearned?

A Dose Of Reality To Douse Trump’s Spirits (Limerick)

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

Dear Donald, your pleasure and awe
Over Trumpcare are marred by a flaw
Eas’ly found with a mouse:
It takes more than one house
To convert your bill into a law.
