Trump’s Russian Blues (Limerick)

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Trump was having a rather good week this past week … until he wasn’t.

So, what ruined Trump’s Congressional address high? No, NOT being wiretapped by Obama. That’s just some shit Trump made up and threw up on Twitter.

No, here’s what REALLY angered Trump: Attorney General Jeff Sessions having to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, because he lied under oath regarding his own Russian contacts. Hence, my limerick:

Trump’s dismayed, overwrought, feeling frayed;
He’d been waiting for Sessions to aid
Him with Russia, and thought
That a fixer’d been bought.
Jeff’s recusal has nixed that charade.

Flynn, Victimized By Russophobia? (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

A headline like this cries out for a limerick:

Russian lawmakers rush to the defense of Trump’s ex-national security adviser

Flynn’s out, but he still has his backers–
Russian leaders, who mock his attackers;
Fear of Russia’s to blame.
For his ouster, they claim.
If they think that helps Flynn, they are crackers!
