Scorning Mitch’s “Scorched-Earth” Threats (Limerick)

Saturday, March 20th, 2021

Very little, excepting some mirth.

Of the Senate? That jerk
Has blocked bills from the birth of the earth.

Manchin Throws His Weight Around (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

Headline: “Manchin flexes muscle in 50-50 Senate”

In wielding his vote makes me glower.
He’s unreas’nably bold
With threats to withhold
Key votes, hoping Biden will cower.
