“Rounding The Turn?” Or Chasing Our Tails? (Limerick)

Monday, October 26th, 2020

“We’re rounding the turn,” Trump proclaims;
Deception’s but one of his games.
His rallies are reckless,
His mask-mocking, feckless.
Is disease-spreading one of his aims?

Limerick Ode to the Loon-In-Chief

Monday, October 12th, 2020

Headline: “Twitter Flags Trump’s Tweet About Being ‘Immune’ to Virus”

The Donald proclaims “I’m immune,”
A rather implausible tune.
Sounding mad as a hatter,
His asinine chatter
Makes it clear that the man is a loon.

“Superspreader” Trump Returns To The Trail (Limerick)

Monday, October 12th, 2020

Headline: “Trump returns to trail amid concerns over COVID-19 diagnosis”

All we hear from the White House is lies
And evasions that nobody buys.
What’s the risk of exposure
To Trump? Non-disclosure!
I surmise that all contact’s unwise.

Covid’s A “Blessing From God?” (Limerick)

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Calls His Illness ‘a Blessing From God’”

Getting Covid’s a “Blessing From God?”
Methinks that Trump’s reasoning’s flawed.
Donald’s just-pretend piety
Merits dubiety.
As with most things, re God Trump’s a fraud.

Trump’s Real Mission? (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

I’ve tried, but can’t shake my suspicion
That Trump and Mike Pence have this mission:
To infect Biden’s team —
That’s the Donald’s wet dream,
Which he thinks cancels out his condition.

Trump’s Fake Machismo Strikes Again (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

The Donald says, “Don’t be afraid
Of Covid.” We’re all being played!
To imply “No Big Deal”
Hurts our land’s common weal.
Once again, we’re by Donald betrayed.

Recovery Hopes (Limerick)

Sunday, October 4th, 2020

Here’s hoping that Donald’s health slump
Quickly ends — sends him back on the stump.
And I also am hoping
We stop merely coping…
And recover from Donald J. Trump.

If Trump Could Write Limericks

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

Via ABC News: “President Donald Trump will hold more large-scale campaign rallies in Wisconsin this weekend as coronavirus cases and hospitalization rage across the battleground state, making the clear decision to prioritize campaigning rather than worry about more people getting sick.”

Since it’s vital to cover all bases,
I am holding big rallies in places
Where the China Plague’s strong.
I don’t care if it’s wrong
Cuz I’m shielded from all virus traces.

Pandemic? WHAT Pandemic? (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Pretends Pandemic Is Over”

Donald Trump and his cronies pretend
That COVID has come to an end.
But magical thinking
Solves nothing: No shrinking
Of death counts — infections ascend.

Trump’s Executive “Order” Scam (Limerick)

Monday, August 10th, 2020

Washington Post Headline: “Here’s what is actually in Trump’s four executive orders

The details on payroll taxes, unemployment and evictions are not as generous as he made them sound.”

Dear Donald, how sneakily clever!
Will your “orders” help voters? No never!
But your base who’s unschooled
In the law may be fooled
By your “efforts” while pulling that lever.

Golfer-In-Chief (Limerick)

Sunday, May 24th, 2020

“Pious” Trump, did you worship today?
Cuz you surely seemed busy at play
At a golf course you own.
Yet we heard you intone
“OPEN CHURCH!” edicts. (Too swamped to pray?)

Trump’s “Pious” Edict (Limerick)

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

Headline: “Trump slams governors, demands they open houses of worship ‘right now’”

“You must open the churches right now!”
Ordered Trump, as if Donald somehow
Had the right to enforce
Such an edict. Of course
To his base, Trump’s a great sacred cow.

Pusher-In-Chief (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

The Pusher-In-Chief says he’s taking
A dangerous drug. Is he faking?
Since he’s crazy enough
To swallow that stuff,
Shall we swallow the claim Donald’s making?

Trump Pens Another Limerick

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020

“The Democrats want me to fail,
And they’re rooting for death to prevail.
Since election’s their goal,
They’d applaud a large hole
In our markets … plus vote-fraud by mail.”

Trump’s Rush To Reopen (Limerick)

Monday, May 4th, 2020

Donald’s rush to reopen stokes dread
Cuz he’d risk causing many more dead.
Though he claims he’ll abide
By data as guide,
Trump’s metrics are hatched in his head.

Trump Shows How Much He Loves Workers (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

Those who work in a meat packing plant
Are risking their lives, yet there’s scant
White House will to protect them
From ills that infect them.
Trump shields owners. But workers? He shan’t!

Workaholic-In-Chief? (Limerick)

Monday, April 27th, 2020

Headline: “White House officials say Trump works so hard, he often misses lunch”

Poor Donald has no time to munch!
It’s crunch time. He’s busy! No brunch!
He’s not watching TV.
No, not Trump — Busy Bee!
You believe this? Then YOU’RE OUT TO LUNCH!

Is That A Threat? Or A Promise? (Limerick)

Sunday, April 26th, 2020

Donald “threatens” to cut down his time
At press briefings. That sounds sublime!
Fewer lies! Less confusion!
More facts! Less delusion!
Few boot-lickers! Who’s smiling? I’m!

Dr. Trump Strikes Again (Limerick)

Saturday, April 25th, 2020

To those who still back Dr. Trump,
He apparently thinks you’re a chump,
Who will gladly imbibe
Any crap he’ll “prescribe,”
Be it poison or waste from his rump.

The Purge (Limerick)

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

The president’s loyalty purge
Continues apace. Any urge
To speak truth to Trump’s power
Makes Dower Don glower;
Facts that Trump doesn’t like SHAN’T emerge.
