Book Purge Surge (Limerick)

Monday, January 17th, 2022

Headline: “Book bans are back in style”

Banning books is, alas, back in fashion;
GOPers suppress them with passion.
The same folks who maintain
“Cancel-culture’s” a bane…
Purge and “burn,” turning book lovers ashen.

A Riot Of A Story (Limerick)

Saturday, January 15th, 2022

Here’s the hilarious (and true) inspiration for my latest limerick:

Headline: “Capitol rioters called Nancy Pelosi’s office looking for a ‘lost and found’ for items they left behind on January 6, according to Rep. Jamie Raskin”

With the Capitol Building defaced,
Some One/Sixers departed in haste.
I must ask: Were they stoned
When post-riot they phoned
Pelosi for stuff they’d misplaced?

Republican Projection Project (Limerick)

Saturday, January 15th, 2022

Projection’s a GOP ploy
Which tends to besmirch and annoy;
Falsely claiming that Dems
Commit GOP “gems,”
Their lies are deployed to destroy.

Fast Talker Jim Jordan Won’t Talk (Limerick)

Monday, January 10th, 2022

Headline: “Jan. 6 panel fires back at Jordan over refusal to cooperate”

Said Jim Jordan, I’ve “nothing to hide.”
But it seems he apparently lied;
He’s declined to comply
With the One/Six probe. Why?
I suspect that he’s fit to be tried.

Insurrection Blues (2-Verse Limerick)

Sunday, January 2nd, 2022

We commemorate One/Six this week,
A day that’s both somber and bleak.
Though we greet it with sadness,
Trump basks in its madness.
Wreaking havoc’s his goal, so he’ll speak.

Trump is NOT at all through with his coup,
So he’ll keep spouting things that ain’t true.
For that man with no soul
Has an ace in the hole:
Clueless boosters who’ll back what he’ll spew.

Political Haiku Trio 2

Saturday, January 1st, 2022

A resolution
for GOPers to try:
Stop Being Such Dicks!

Nixing worthy laws
To preserve filibuster?
Hope for us busted.

Donald Trump invents
Conditional Endorsement:
“Avenge me, or else!”

Political Haiku Trio 1

Friday, December 31st, 2021

Is Joe President?
That depends on who you ask.
Democracy weeps.

Right-wing Justices:
“When we like what the State does,
States’ Rights must prevail.”

If the unvaxxed die,
And allies don’t believe it,
Are they really dead?

Cowardly Trumpsters (Limerick)

Saturday, December 25th, 2021

There’s a curse Trumpsters hurl with abandon:
It’s the cuss-in-disguise “Let’s Go Brandon!”
They use code cuz they’re hidin’;
Its gist? “Fuck Joe Biden!”
What a noxious obscenity stand-in!

An Out-Of-Control U.S. Supreme Court? (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021

Headline: “Supreme Court appears skeptical of New York’s restrictive gun-control law”

New York gun control’s likely to slip,
Cuz the highest Fed Court lacks a grip
On our big city needs
To forestall deadly deeds.
I just hope it won’t shoot from the hip!

Joe To The Rescue? (Limerick)

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

Headline: “Democrats Look to Biden to Resolve Impasse”

Dem pols are all counting on Biden
To fix deadlocks which mount and then widen.
Watch the Mods v the Squad;
Their divisions are broad!
So if I were Prez Joe, I’d be hidin’.

Trump-Sycophant McCarthy Can’t Handle The Truth (Limerick)

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

Headline: “McCarthy pulls his 5 GOP members from 1/6 committee after Pelosi rejects 2 of his picks”

When McCarthy named Jordan and Banks
To the One/Six Committee, “No thanks!”
Was the answer he got
And WANTED; his plot
Was to pull his five picks from the ranks.

Republican Quandary (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

Headline: “GOP 2024 hopefuls face challenge: Not upsetting Trump”

“The Hill” tells us something we know
About GOP prez-hopefuls’ woe:
They must NOT rile the prickly
Ex-prez, yet act quickly.
Avoid venom from Trump? Ho, ho, ho!

Joe Manchin’s Fantasy (Limerick)

Sunday, June 6th, 2021

Headline: “Fox News’ Chris Wallace Confronts Joe Manchin Over ‘Being Naive’ About Bipartisan Cooperation”

How can Manchin remain so deluded?
Were he lucid, he SHOULD have concluded
That bipartisanship
Is a fantasy trip
That will leave Biden’s vision denuded.

Trump’s Latest Lie (Limerick)

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021

Reinstatement will happen this year
In August, claims Trump. So I fear
That derangement won’t end
And our nation can’t mend
While treachery’s still his career.

Our Nixed Commission Fix (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Our land’s in a terrible fix
When Republican Senators nix
A bipartisan group
Meant to get us the scoop
On what happened this year on 1/6.

Trumps Dog-GONE Blog (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Headline: “Trump blog page shuts down for good”

Big news: Seems the Donald has dumped
His new blog because int’rest has slumped.
Even fans found it boring.
(And some were caught snoring.)
It appears that the Donald’s been trumped.

Isn’t The Trump Grand Jury Grand? (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 26th, 2021

Will Trump’s CFO drop a dime
On the Donald? It’s surely high time!
A grand jury’s convened,
So here’s hoping that fiend
Is convicted of many a crime.

GOP Pols think Trump’s still relevant, but IS he? (Limerick)

Saturday, May 22nd, 2021

If you’re wond’ring how Trump’s blog has fared,
Donald’s blog posts are NOT widely shared.
His traffic has slumped,
And his fans don’t seem pumped.
Could it be they’re no longer ensnared?

Trump Lashes Out Against Letitia James (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 19th, 2021

After learning that New York AG Letitia James is pursuing a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, and that she’s working with Manhattan DA Cy Vance, Donald Trump posted a lengthy blog rant, which could have benefited from paragraphing … and sanity.

Donald Trump seems distressed and upset.
It appears he is starting to fret
That he’ll spend his last days
In prolonged prison stays.
James and Vance pose a serious threat!

Ousted Liz Cheney, Still Speaking Out (2-Verse Limerick)

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021

Headline: “Cheney, stripped of leadership position, vows to keep Trump from returning to presidency”

Liz Cheney’s been rudely expelled
From the leadership post that she held.
Now the House GOP
Is hoping to be
Free to parrot Trump’s lies, with Liz quelled.

But this ouster won’t stop her from speaking;
She’ll keep Trump-centric BS critiquing.
Liz will fight back with vigor,
Her megaphone bigger,
As she calls out the havoc Trump’s wreaking.
