Pence Ain’t A Saint (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 29th, 2022

Headline: “Pence: ‘We must not rest’ until abortion is outlawed in every state”

On One/Six, Pence behaved like a man;
He helped scuttle Trump’s scurrilous plan.
But enough with the praise!
Re abortion, he’d raze
Women’s rights with a nationwide ban.

A Riot Of A Story (Limerick)

Saturday, January 15th, 2022

Here’s the hilarious (and true) inspiration for my latest limerick:

Headline: “Capitol rioters called Nancy Pelosi’s office looking for a ‘lost and found’ for items they left behind on January 6, according to Rep. Jamie Raskin”

With the Capitol Building defaced,
Some One/Sixers departed in haste.
I must ask: Were they stoned
When post-riot they phoned
Pelosi for stuff they’d misplaced?

Fast Talker Jim Jordan Won’t Talk (Limerick)

Monday, January 10th, 2022

Headline: “Jan. 6 panel fires back at Jordan over refusal to cooperate”

Said Jim Jordan, I’ve “nothing to hide.”
But it seems he apparently lied;
He’s declined to comply
With the One/Six probe. Why?
I suspect that he’s fit to be tried.

Insurrection Blues (2-Verse Limerick)

Sunday, January 2nd, 2022

We commemorate One/Six this week,
A day that’s both somber and bleak.
Though we greet it with sadness,
Trump basks in its madness.
Wreaking havoc’s his goal, so he’ll speak.

Trump is NOT at all through with his coup,
So he’ll keep spouting things that ain’t true.
For that man with no soul
Has an ace in the hole:
Clueless boosters who’ll back what he’ll spew.

Banished and Bereft (Limerick)

Saturday, January 9th, 2021

Donald Trump doesn’t “get” the to-do;
So WHAT if he triggered a coup!
But he’s run out of luck
And for once he can’t duck
The backlash from acts he should rue.

Donald Trump, who’s a bully full-blown,
Lost his bullhorn; his phone’s a mere phone.
No more weapon of choice —
Just a much-weakened voice;
He’s bereft of his base and alone.

The Victim-In-Chief Lashes Out (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

Headline: “Trump Says House Investigations Are ‘Bullshit’”

Poor Donald is all in a stew;
He complains we’re engaged in a COUP.
Extra hostile on Twitter,
He’s angry and bitter.
What’s a “victim” to do? Tweet and sue.
