GOPers Court Trump At Court (Limerick)

Thursday, May 16th, 2024

Washington Post Headline: “Republicans flock to court to ‘kiss the ring’ during Trump criminal trial”

GOPers are flocking to court
To kiss Donald’s rump and help thwart
New York’s efforts to try
Donald Trump. (He’s their guy!)
And to truth, law, and justice distort.

Trump’s Sore-Winner Speech (Limerick)

Wednesday, January 24th, 2024

A sane presidential candidate would have been pleased after his double-digit New Hampshire primary win over Nikki Haley. But not Donald! He was so furious over Haley’s concession speech vow to remain in the race, that he seethed instead of celebrating:

“Mr. Trump delivered a crude, bitter victory speech attacking Ms. Haley; her chief surrogate, Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire; and the state’s primary process…”

Dear Trump, you sound terribly mad.
I’m confused: You just won. Why so sad?
You di’n’t win by enough?
Oh, poor baby! That’s rough!
But there’s always your dear old pal, Vlad.

Open Limerick To Cognitively-Challenged Trump

Saturday, January 20th, 2024

My latest limerick requires a bit of background info, for those who missed Trump’s latest cognitive quagmire: In New Hampshire this past week, Trump converted his Pelosi lie about January 6 security into a Nikki Haley lie.

And no, I am NOT making this up: According to Trump, Haley was in charge of security during the January 6 Capitol attack, and Haley turned down Trump’s (non-existent) offer of 10,000 National Guard soldiers. (Apparently, the former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador became Speaker of the House when nobody was looking.)

Here’s my Open Limerick To Cognitively-Challenged Trump:

Pelosi’s a female, it’s true.
So is Haley, and both oppose YOU.
Nonetheless, it’s unwise
To (while spinning your lies)
Confuse those two gals, as you spew.

Yet Another Trump Limerick

Tuesday, May 16th, 2023

Four more years of a man who’s our bane?
A man with a venomous brain?
What’s the crux of the matter?
Trump’s vile — a Mad Hatter!
The GOP’s choice is insane!

Limerick Ode To Solidarity

Monday, May 1st, 2023

We the Dems must show full solidarity
To counter the loathsome barbarity
Of Republican stances,
Whose fright’ning advances
Account for this lack of hilarity.

Flag-Hugger Haiku

Monday, December 5th, 2022

Flag-hugger Donald
says suspend Constitution–
GOP pols shrug.

Immersed In Mendacity (Limerick and Haiku)

Saturday, December 3rd, 2022

Many folks have a shocking capacity
For deception and lies — sheer mendacity.
They will lie to the max,
Spurring violent attacks
On those guilty of naught but veracity.

*****

When mendacity
replaces veracity,
sorry state indeed.

Trump’s Announcement Dud (Limerick)

Sunday, November 27th, 2022

Donald’s run has been met with a shrug.
Will he fin’ly be squished like a bug?
He announced and was trounced
In reviews, soon pronounced
“Tired” news. Please indict that damn thug!

The Real Reason Trump’s Running Yet Again (Limerick)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2022

Donald thinks that his run’s a solution
To imminent crime-prosecution.
But indictments shall come,
And that law-breaking bum
Will be tried and soon face retribution.

You KNOW Who You Are!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2022

You think women have too many rights
And that MORE guns will somehow stop fights.
You’ll vote for a liar;
A guy you’d not hire
To baby or dog-sit. That bites!

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!

The Meddling “Former Guy” (Limerick)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

“Republicans are sounding the alarm that his attempts to meddle in primaries could hurt the party’s efforts to win back the majority”

GOPers are worried and fretting;
They’re afraid that Trump’s meddling’s abetting
The Dems in the House.
For they bet on a louse,
Whose candidate picks have them sweating.

My Limerick Question Of The Day

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Embracing the fringe politicians
(Pols enamored of lies and seditions)
Is the GOP’s course.
Will this soon be its source
Of failing electoral missions?

Georgia On His Mind (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 5th, 2021

Headline: “Judge Shoots Down Last-Ditch Trump Lawsuit Looking to Overturn Georgia Loss”

Poor Donald keeps losing in court;
Filing spurious suits is his forte.
Each “disgraceful” court loss
Makes him bitter and cross,
As Trump’s time in the Oval grows short.

Whiner-In-Chief Still Whining (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 15th, 2020

Says Donald, they’re all out to get me;
RINO judges and staffers won’t let me
Overturn and undo
Biden’s “win.” I should sue
The whole crew cuz they failed to abet me.

Time’s Up! (Limerick)

Saturday, December 12th, 2020

Dear Donald, enough with your moaning
And bitching and whining and groaning!
Your lies about wins
Lead a long list of sins.
My suggestion: Some prison atoning.

Limerick Ode To Our Liar-In-Chief

Monday, December 7th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Claims He’d Be Gracious, If He Lost”

Our pugnacious prez claims he’d be “gracious”
If he lost. (His lie-library’s spacious.)
Donald did in fact lose,
But his goal’s to confuse,
Bilk, and bully — that’s “Trump the Mendacious.”

Delicate-Flower-In-Chief (Limerick)

Monday, November 30th, 2020

Poor Donald’s a delicate flower;
The mere thought of his loss makes him glower.
So he lies and brings suits;
Claims they’re all in cahoots
To prevent him from staying in power.

The Boy Who Cried Fraud (Limerick)

Monday, November 30th, 2020

Though it’s nearly a month since Joe won,
The Donald continues to shun
The fact that he lost;
He wants Biden-votes tossed,
And cries “FRAUD!” What’s his proof? Trump has none.

Yay, Michigan! (Limerick)

Monday, November 23rd, 2020

Headline: “Michigan certifies Biden victory in another blow to Trump”

Donald’s Michigan thievery’s failed;
His electoral heist scheme curtailed.
Joe’s electors are IN;
A democracy WIN!
How refreshing that justice prevailed.
