The Devil In The Oval? (Limerick)

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

When the market is up, Donald crows
And boasts about HIS market close.
Now it’s down “666,”
But Trump’s got a fix:
Only mention the DOW when it grows.

Alternative Version:

When the market is up, Donald crows
And boasts about HIS market close.
With a huge diminution,
Here’s Donald’s solution:
Only mention the DOW when it grows.

How’d He Do? (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

Donald’s SOTU’s about to be aired.
You can skip it, cuz here’s how he fared:
There was almost no drool,
And he wasn’t too cruel.
“Presidential,” they’ll say. “He prepared.”

Mitch v. Mueller (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

One of today’s many annoying headlines: “McConnell Sees No Need to Protect Mueller From President Trump”

No need to shield Mueller, says Mitch.
No chance he’ll be tossed in a ditch.
Undermine him? You jest!
No one has such a quest!
And if something goes wrong? Life’s a bitch!

Does Trump’s SOTU Matter? (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

Does it matter what Donald Trump says
When he gives his first SOTU as prez?
Why bother to glean
What his latest words mean?
There’s more substance and truth in a Pez.

No Sympathy For Melania! (Limerick)

Friday, January 26th, 2018

I don’t care if Melania’s sad,
And so what if her marriage is bad!
She married for money
And status. That “honey”
Was aware she was wedding a cad.

Trump v. Kelly (Limerick)

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Trump is mad at John Kelly. Here’s why:
Re the Donald’s campaign, he let fly
Quite a wall-vow affront;
It’s surprisingly blunt.
“Uninformed,” though, sounds better than “lie.”

Our Racist-in-Chief (Limerick)

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

My beef: We’ve a Racist-in-Chief.
We’re his fiefdom; bald lies, his motif.
Trump’s supremacist brand
Showers grief on our land.
Need relief! May his reign here be brief!

Trump’s Now and Future Limericks

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

You probably know that Trump’s chimed in on the “Oprah presidential run” conversation. But did you also know that Trump’s already composed two Oprah limericks — one for this year and one for 2020?

Fortunately for my readers, I managed to get hold of the only copy:

Trump’s 2018 Limerick:

Though Oprah’s unlikely to run,
I’ll beat her and have lots of fun.
I know her real well
And I think that she’s swell,
But she’ll surely be YUUUGELY outdone.

Trump’s 2020 Limerick:

Dopey Oprah is sorry she ran.
Being prez is a job for a man.
And besides, it’s not clear
She was even born here.
She’s a mopey old flash in the pan.

Ode To Donald “Genius” Trump

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Dear Donald, when people are smart,
And their genius is way off the chart,
They do NOT have to brag
And make ev’ryone gag,
Cuz their brains shine as bright as Descartes.

Trump Versifies (Limerick)

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

How dare the Dems say I’m a bum,
And lazy and crazy and dumb!
I am really, like, smart,
Stable genius with heart.
No collusion! No puppet! They’re scum!

The Great Tax “Reform” Con (Limerick)

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

The tax “reform” process was stealthy,
And its impact’s acutely unhealthy.
The damage is clear;
We’ll lose ALL we hold dear,
As the rich become even more wealthy.

Who Needs Qualified Judges? (Limerick)

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

My latest limerick was inspired by this Politico headline: “Republicans step up defense of ‘not qualified’ judicial nominees.”

“Unqualified” judges? Who cares!?!
If the nominee’s attitude squares
With Republican stances,
Trump’s Court-choice advances.
He’s OUR guy, so NO splitting hairs!

Who Ya Gonna Believe? (Limerick)

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

Russia meddled, our experts maintain;
Our Democracy’s suffered a stain.
But Donald would rather
Buy Putin’s false blather;
Trump’s owned by Vlad’s hard driving reign.

Limerick Ode To Trump’s Braggadocio

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

Says Donald, “I’ve always been great
With money.” My mem’ry’s first-rate.
My IQ’s through the roof.
What? You’re asking for proof?
I am PREZ, and you’re NOT. End debate!

The Non-Case For Hillary’s Collusion (Limerick)

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Hill colluded with Russia? Explain
How that makes any sense, cuz my brain
Can not fathom collusion
To cause a profusion
Of harm to her own prez campaign.

The Distraction Game (Limerick)

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Mueller’s team has been hustling and humming;
Rumor has it arrests are forthcoming.
While we wait, watch the right,
Armed and eager to fight,
Weave their web of distractions mind-numbing.

Mueller’s Halloween Surprise?

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Is Trump in the throes of affrightment
Over news about Mueller’s indictment?
Who’s been charged? We don’t know
Cuz it’s sealed. Even so,
I’m aglow with a growing excitement.

The Trump Threat (Limerick)

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

Is Donald a threat to free press?
Well of course my response must be yes.
But much more is in peril
From President Feral;
There’s no end to his menacing mess.


As I train my brain
on our Oval Office bane,
staying sane’s a strain.


Limerick Ode To the Destroyer-In-Chief

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Be it treaty or deal, Trump will break it.
There’s a health law folks need? He’ll forsake it.
Then post-wrecking with relish,
He’ll greatly embellish
Praise due him, when others remake it.


Headline: “GOP Lawmaker Suggests People with HIV Be Quarantined”

Mad Kane Suggests GOP Lawmakers Be Quarantined.


Remember when Trump
promised to drain DC swamp,
Then swamped it instead?


Dear Donald: It’s bad enough that you’ve made me miss Dubya! But making me miss Dick Cheney? How COULD you!!!


Those Military Bereavement Calls (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Making service-death phone calls is tough
And, alas, Donald lacks the right stuff.
So although I believed
He should call the bereaved,
Never mind. They have suffered enough!
