Headline: “Engaging With Trump’s Die-Hard Supporters Isn’t Productive”

Engaging with Donald Trump backers
Is as fruitless as talking to hackers.
Any woman or man
Who remains a Trump fan
Is (like Trump) indisputably crackers.

Open Limerick To Alex Jones

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

Dear Alex, I’m filled with dismay:
Where’s that war you foretold for today?

On the 4th from this hell.
That’s the last time I trust what you say!

Conspiracy Theorists Are Up In Arms (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

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

Donald “4 Pinocchio” Trump Strikes Again (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Trump’s “Four Pinocchios” keep mounting up, as The Donald amplifies his conspiracy-theory-fed attacks on Hillary Clinton.

The latest is for suggesting foul play in the (to quote Trump) “fishy” 1993 suicide of Vince Foster.

The Donald will use any source
(Even chain mail from fringe groups, of course)
In attacking a rival.
His key to survival?
Coarse indiff’rence to truth, sans remorse.

Limerick Ode To James Inhofe

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Who’s paying Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe to invent and spread lies about Obama stockpiling bullets to deprive 2nd Amendment huggers of ammunition? The gun industry? The bullet industry? Both? Surely he’s not doing it solely because he’s an idiotic conspiracy theorist. Or is he?

Limerick Ode To James Inhofe
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Buy bullets before there’s none left—
All bought up by Barack — you bereft:
That’s conspiracy loon
Jim Inhofe’s new tune;
At making up lies, the guy’s deft.
