Trump Nixes Naysayers (Limerick)

March 13th, 2018

Don’t you dare tell the President “No!”
If you do, Trump will deem you a foe.
All dissenters are out.
They have lost all their clout.
Only yes-men can star on his show.

Mike “Trump Enabler” Pompeo, Secy of State? (Limerick)

March 13th, 2018

Mike Pompeo for State? He’s a Yes-Man!
To help Donald, he’ll lie and aggress, man.
He’s a hawkish fanatic.
Loves torture! Dogmatic!
As for climate change? Feel my distress, man!

Trump’s Latest Ex Is Rex (Limerick)

March 13th, 2018

Rex has rarely done anything right,
And his errors I’d often indict.
But re Russia he’s wise,
So to no one’s surprise
Trump’s response is: Get out of my sight!

Our Vulgarian-In-Chief (Limerick)

March 11th, 2018

The Donald’s a rambling vulgarian,
Who pretends to be pro-proletarian.
He’s mean and mendacious.
His greed is rapacious.
Don’t revere him? You’re “low-IQ” carrion.

Donald Digs Yet Another Hole (Limerick)

March 9th, 2018

The Donald lacks impulse control,
Making damage control his staff’s role.
Trump said “yes” to young Kim
On an ego-filled whim.
Reckless acts, once again, take their toll.

Trump To Meet With Kim Jong-un — OY! (Limerick)

March 9th, 2018

Always vaunting his deal-making skill,
Trump expects to meet Kim and to kill.
Will he plunder, or blunder?
I worry and wonder
What nuclear secrets he’ll spill.

Trump Blunders Yet Again (Limerick)

March 8th, 2018

Trump’s determined to screw up our trade,
Signing orders most experts have nayed,
Foisting tariffs with zest,
Cuz The Donald knows BEST,
And the Dunce-In-Chief Must Be Obeyed!

Stormy Litigation (Limerick)

March 7th, 2018

It seems Stormy and Trump made a deal;
Pre-election, for cash she’d conceal
Their affair and much more.
Her lawyer, top drawer,
Claims it’s void. I await the reveal.

Trump Pens Another Limerick

March 7th, 2018

You’ve probably seen this Trump tweet:

The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House. Wrong! People will always come & go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy!

But I’ll bet you haven’t read his latest limerick:

All those stories of CHAOS are FAKE!
White House turn-over’s great! No mistake!
I’ve been seeking perfection
In staffer selection.
Claiming otherwise makes you a snake!

Gary Cohn, Bye-Bye (Limerick)

March 6th, 2018

Yet another departure! Now Cohn
Has resigned. Say goodbye to the lone
Voice of reason on trade.
Since this rational aide
Can no longer persuade, coop’s been flown.

When Was He Hinged? (Limerick)

March 3rd, 2018

Trump’s “unhinged,” people say — yes it’s true;
He’s unglued and it’s making them blue.
His bad moods makes him act
Without reason or fact.
My response must be: What else is new?

Not Wright For The EPA! (Limerick)

March 3rd, 2018

“Trump EPA Pick Works for Dow Chemical”

Donald’s EPA pick works for Dow,
And all I can say’s “Holy Cow!”
If confirmed, Peter Wright’s
Brand new job’s toxic sites.
Is Dow Chemical happy? And how!

Guess Who? (Limerick)

March 1st, 2018

Does this sound like somebody you know?

I wrote this limerick several years ago, never but published it. For some reason, it now feels extremely timely:

A smartass was always provoking,
Inciting and goading and stoking.
He’d smile as he stirred
Up the battle he’d spurred.
Then smirking, he’d say, “Only joking.”

Trump’s Bravery Claims Are All Wet (Limerick)

February 27th, 2018

The Donald’s a cowardly fella,
Who has bravery fantasies stella.
He’d save kids, he’ll maintain,
Though (I guess) not from rain:
Watch him hogging his big-ass umbrella.

Our Brave Oval Knave (Limerick)

February 26th, 2018

This CNN headline cries out for a limerick: “Trump on Florida shooting: ‘I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn’t have a weapon'”

Dear Donald: How lovely to know
That you’d bravely and willingly go
T’wards a gunman to save
High school students! You knave,
How’re those bone spurs of yours? What a schmo!

Pro-Life??? (Limerick)

February 25th, 2018

Viewing DACA, Head Start, WIC with scorn,
Pushing guns, while their victims still mourn.
Cutting taxes is key!
The “pro-life” GOP
Is ONLY pro-life till you’re born.

Open Limerick To NRA TOOLS

February 22nd, 2018

Dear NRA lovers and tools:
“Armed teachers protecting our schools?”
This insults the police
Who FULL-TIME keep the peace.
Sniper skills ain’t a hobby, you fools!

Conspiracy Theorists Are Up In Arms (Limerick)

February 21st, 2018

“The high school survivors are actors,”
Claim the gun-demonstration detractors.
“And they’re liberal plants
Coached by dads, mothers, aunts.” —
Anti-gun-control’s prime malefactors.

Trump’s Female Sycophants (Limerick)

February 11th, 2018

“Why Won’t The Women Walk Out Of The Trump White House?” ( A good question from Nicole Belle of Crooks and Liars.)

Why are women still working for Trump?
His team’s a misogynist dump.
Yet they stay and defend him
And clearly can’t mend him.
Seems ambition trumps all in that sump.

Trump’s “Due Process” Views (Limerick)

February 10th, 2018

Trump’s bemoaning an ex-staffer’s plight:
The lack of due process ain’t right!
Rob denies he abused
Those three gals. The accused
Rates due process, if male and if white.
