Headline: “Accused Russian spy Maria Butina appears poised to plead guilty”

Donald Trump should be tied up in knots,
Cuz Maria Butina knows lots,
And it looks like she’ll squeal;
She has just made a deal.
Oy gevalt! Trump may actually plotz.

Truckling Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

I find myself smiling and chuckling
At this new-to-me word: I’ve learned “truckling”
Means obsequious actions,
Like Donald’s attractions
To tyrants … and bootlicker suckling.

Vlad Visit Interruptus? (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018

Headline: “Kremlin: Russia not ready to accept Trump invite to Washington”

Over hosting old Vlad, Trump’s been heady.

To say “Da” to a visit.
A diss? Ain’t it, is it?
Poor Trump hoped the two would go steady.

Putin’s Puppet (Limerick)

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

He is craven and shockingly weak.
Donald’s bluster’s replaced
By behavior debased.
And his party’s response? Piddlin’ pique.

Traitor Trump (Limerick)

Monday, July 16th, 2018

At long last, there can be no debate:

Russia’s Putin, whose smirk
Shows contempt for the jerk
Whose betrayal one can’t over-state.

#TreasonSummit (Limerick)

By tweeting away
To keep that fine hashtag ascending.

Trump’s European Adventure

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Trump’s trip has, so far, been a mess.
Yet he brags it’s a major success.
Breaching friendships galore,
Trump the tiddlywink whore
Placates Putin, a master of chess.

Putin’s Investment Pays Off (Limerick)

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

The G7 vibe has been blighted,
So Putin is surely delighted.
Trump gives Vlad his best-pal-eyes,
Maligning our allies;
Once united, we’re naught but benighted.

So I hope you’ll repair
To DC and make Democrats glum.”

But Donald would rather
Buy Putin’s false blather;
Trump’s owned by Vlad’s hard driving reign.

Trump’s Love Affair With Strongmen (Limerick)

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Evil despots quite clearly the wrong men
To admire or laud.
Trump’s a terrified fraud;
Naught but one of those cowed “get along” men.

Trump v. Putin? (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Donald’s suddenly mired in disputes
With pal Putin. I’ve spotted the roots
Of their low in relations
And dreadful vibrations:
Trump must “prove” that they’re NOT in cahoots.

Which Liar Should We Believe? (Limerick)

Saturday, April 8th, 2017

For chemical warfare, but Vlad
Says Assad’s stash is barren;
Just rebels have sarin.
When two liars diverge, who’s the fraud?

Trump’s Been Limerick-ing Again

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Those who claim my election’s illicit,
Saying I’m with V. Putin complicit,
Are misplacing their scorn;
Donald Trump’s native born,
Unlike Bar! So my ass? You can kiss it!

Donald Tweets To Putin (Limerick)

Friday, December 30th, 2016

This Trump tweet requires a limerick, don’t you think?
“Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!”

In effect telling Putin, “Take heart;
“Very soon you will own
“The Oval. Just phone
“With instructions. I can’t wait to start.”

Trump’s Secret Limerick To Putin

Friday, December 16th, 2016

How grateful I am. Your display
Of email artillery
Helped me to pillory
Hill’ry. Your bribe’s on the way.

Limerick Ode To Putin-Loving Trump

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Donald’s concept of leadership’s thuggery
And his chief expertise is skulduggery.
Run our nation? That guy?
Just the thought makes me cry!
Trump belongs in a well-padded snuggery.

Putin and Me, a Limerick by Donald Trump

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Are you confused by the Trump/Putin relationship? The Donald has helpfully written us this limerick:

No one hacked, just to help with my bid.
But what a great plan!
Hey Putin, my man,
Hack those emails that Hillary hid.

Ode To Wingnuttery
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Obama is a “tyrant,”
wingnuts tell us ev’ry day.
But they also claim his “cowardice”
makes Putin go astray.

Seems Obama’s “too aggressive,
seizing power with his pen,”
when he isn’t just a “weakling.”
You bewildered yet? Amen!

R U Proud Of Yourself, McCain? (Limerick)

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

After the New York Times published Putin’s op ed column, Senator McCain decided to one-up him by writing an opinion piece for Pravda (the official paper of the Russian Communist Party.) Unfortunately, he didn’t realize there are two Pravdas. Even more unfortunately, McCain ended up being published in the wrong Pravda.

Pravda.ru, the news outlet that actually published McCain’s piece, is an electronic news website founded in 1999. Even though the website also bears the name Pravda, it is not connected to Pravda newspaper. The website has English and Russian editions and covers everything from politics to fashion and celebrities.

R U Proud Of Yourself, McCain? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There’s someone on John McCain’s staff
Who made an embarrassing gaffe:
His haste he shall rue—
Pravda-r-u won’t do
For a piece by McCain. What a laugh!
