Open 3-Verse Limerick To Donald Trump

January 6th, 2019

I won’t ask you, dear Trump, not to lie.
You can’t stop, so don’t bother to try.
And nor will I ask
You to do any task
That requires a warm-hearted guy.

And there’s really no need to pretend
That the law isn’t something you bend
To benefit you
And a very small few:
Your children … and maybe a friend.

I won’t EVEN say, Donald don’t whine.
You can’t help it, I know, so that’s fine.
I’ve a single request,
And it isn’t “Be Best.”
I am begging you: Kindly Resign!

Trump’s Transparent Troop Lies (Limerick)

Trump Tries To “Rally” The Troops (Limerick)

And you menace the press…
Though you DO provide plenty of scoops.

Covert deployment
has been revealed by Donald
who can’t be trusted.

In a reign that flouts all of our laws.

Runs amok — finds a fall guy to fuck.

So on vengeance Trump’s keen.
How he wishes they’d cease to exist!

To describe it. Confused?
So’s the staff-chief now leading Trump’s herd.

And the thought of it all makes me pissed.
The government’s closed,
And our nation’s been hosed
By a felon. (Well, you get the gist.)

Base support. How he loves to demean!

Limerick Ode To Michael Flynn

Take this lesson from Flynn, who’s a dunce:
When you feign being set up,
Your troubles won’t let up;
Fed’ral judges detest such affronts!
