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 Unmasked (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Headline: “Trump removes mask upon arrival at White House”

There are health codes that most of us follow.
But not Donald, for HIS soul is hollow.
Though he’s ill, he unmasks;
In a bare face, he basks.
Trump’s actions and words — hard to swallow!

Yet Another “If Trump Could Write Limericks”

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Halts Pandemic Relief Negotiations”

No relief bill this month, on reflection,
Cuz the Senate’s sole job’s my selection
For our land’s highest bench.
Judge Amy’s a wench
Who has earned my support and affection.

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.

White House Medical Confusion (Limerick)

Sunday, October 4th, 2020

Headline: “Trump update spurs more questions than answers, again”

About doctors I hate to be rude,
But the info from Trump’s doc was skewed.
Is lying contagious?
Non-liars courageous?
Is fibbing for Donald deemed shrewd?

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.

Donald’s Doubters (Limerick)

Saturday, October 3rd, 2020

Headline: “Some Doubt Trump Is Actually Sick”

Some doubt that the Donald is sick
Cuz he pours his deceptions on thick.
But he’d never pretend
To be ill; that would end
Donald’s fake macho-image real quick.

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.

Mask Mandate Madness (Limerick)

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Headline: “Biden on Trump’s Attack on Him for Not Introducing Mask Mandate: ‘To Be Clear, I Am Not Currently President’”

“Where’s the national mandate for masks
Biden promised to give us?” Trump asks.
For logic, I mourn,
Cuz I sure could have sworn
That’s among Donald’s President-tasks.

Trump’s Killer Instinct (Limerick)

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

Headline: “Trump ignores science at dangerous indoor rally”

Donald’s base should start writing their wills,
Cuz he feeds on large audience thrills;
Crammed together indoors,
Scanty masks, chair-filled floors.
Donald Trump doesn’t care whom he kills.

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.
