Malaise At Mar-a-Lago? (Limerick)

Sunday, March 21st, 2021

Mar-a-Lago is partially closed,
Due to Covid. No shock: Trump’s opposed
To the wearing of masks;
In rebellion, he basks.
The result? His club’s rep has been hosed.

The Bullies’ Bullseye On Asian-Americans (Limerick)

Thursday, March 18th, 2021

You’re of Asian descent? Then watch out!
There’s a bullseye on you, without doubt,
Placed by Trump and his cronies —
Those bigots and phonies.
All it took was a “Kung Flu” Trump shout.

Neanderthal Limerick

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

Headline: “Biden calls states’ relaxing virus restrictions, including mask mandates, ‘Neanderthal thinking’”

Relaxing state Covid restrictions
Conflicts with the science predictions.
It’s “Neanderthal thinking,”
Says Biden, not shrinking
From words that condemn derelictions.

Non-Existent Trump Vaccine Distribution Plan (Limerick)

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

Headline: “Biden inheriting nonexistent coronavirus vaccine distribution plan and must start ‘from scratch,’ sources say”

Donald’s plan for vaccine distribution?
Non-existent, it seems. The solution?
Starting over, from scratch.
It’s a Trumpy “Here, catch,”
From a “team” known for poor execution.

Three House Democrats Catch Covid-19 While Sheltering With Republican Mask-Refuseniks (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

Headline: “Three Democrats Now Have COVID-19 After Republicans Refused To Wear Masks During The Capitol Attack”

Three Democrats, trapped in tight space,
Taking refuge from Trump’s raging base,
Were infected; made ill
By GOP swill
Who refused to wear masks — a disgrace!

Still Think It’s A Hoax? (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 29th, 2020

I’m amazed that there still are some folks
Who keep claiming that Covid’s a hoax.
Must you face death yourself
To put lies on the shelf?
Will you wait till a relative croaks?

Non-Deal-Maker-In-Chief (2-Verse Limerick)

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2020

Headline: “President Trump throws wrench into COVID-19 relief by saying he won’t sign bill”

When a bill is a fait accompli,
Trump the “deal-maker” bitches with glee.
He won’t help something pass;
He’d much rather harass
Other pols, in a bill-griping spree.

Donald COULD have helped carve out a deal
For Covid Relief. But that heel
Sent Mnuchin to rep him,
And now would sidestep him;
A bit late for such “squeaky wheel” zeal!

Our Scientific-Genius-In-Chief

Sunday, November 29th, 2020

Says Trump, “I came up with vaccines.”
Not bad for a guy who demeans
The value of science
And urges defiance
Of experts. (His uncle’s great genes?)

“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 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.
