Trumpian Sins (Limerick)

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Donald Trump rarely speaks out with candor.
How that man loves to libel and slander!
Watch him grimace and glow’r
While abusing his pow’r.
I preferred when he’d mainly philander.

Trump And The Disabled (Limerick)

Sunday, April 29th, 2018

Trump via PBS NewsHour: “What happened with the Paralympics was so incredible and so inspiring to me. And I watched — it’s a little tough to watch too much, but I watched as much as I could.”

Paralympics, says Trump: “tough to watch” —
An embarrassing compliment-botch.
This is Trump being “nice.”
My unwanted advice:
Any further such ref’rences? Scotch!

Trump’s Biggest Fear? (Limerick)

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Headline: “Trump allies worry Cohen will flip.”

Trump cronies are starting to fear
A Mike Cohen betrayal is near;
That when faced with the threat
Of prison, he’ll sweat
And blab secrets that Donald holds dear.

Comey Presses His Case (Limerick)

Monday, April 16th, 2018

If you watch tonight’s Comey interview (ABC, 10 PM Eastern) feel free to comment here:

I’m guessing that Trump won’t delight
In the interview airing tonight.
What will Comey disgorge
To ABC’s George?
I presume it won’t help Donald’s plight.

Sinclair’s Scheme (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Headline: “Sinclair producer in Nebraska resigns to protest ‘obvious bias'”

The Trump-loving owner Sinclair
Mandates talking points over the air;
Outlets MUST yell “Fake News”
To dupe and confuse.
The target’s all media that’s fair.

Dow Doldrums (Limerick)

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

“The market keeps dropping!” we sob.
And there’s no reassurance from Schwab.
We feel robbed and depressed
And impossibly stressed.
Here’s my message to Donald: Great job!

Goverment By Whim? (Limerick)

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Headline: “Post: As Inner Circle Shrinks, Trump Decisions Even More Driven By Whim”

The Donald seems driven by whim.
It’s a source of his truculent vim.
When it’s time to decide,
Expertise bona fide
Is ignored. Informed choice? Chances dim!

My Next Job?

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Very early in my legal career, I worked for a law firm that represented Trump’s father’s real estate company. Consequently, I had some dealings with the Donald. Hence this limerick:

It’s hard for the Donald to hire
A lawyer; his plight’s become dire.
In fact, things are so bad
That he tweeted me: “Mad,
Please come back. Get me out of my mire.”

Donald Trump — Unmasked … and Un-Esq’d (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

The Donald’s a dreadful employer
And a volatile stature-destroyer.
His “art of the deal”
Is to lie, backbite, steal,
Which is why he can’t buy a good lawyer.

Saturday (So Far) Is Trump-Tweet-Free (Limerick)

Saturday, March 24th, 2018

The week’s at an end — I’m in heaven —
I’ve a respite from Trump-crap to leaven
With a lim’rick or three;
I’d be gleeful if he
Would go golfing, say, twenty-four seven.

Our Tweeter-In-Chief (Limerick)

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

I must learn to ignore Donald’s tweets;
For the most part, they’re mean, lie-filled bleats.
But his posts are addicting;
Soon statements conflicting
Will spew, as the cycle repeats.

McMaster Replaced By Bolton? Words Fail Me! (Limerick)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

When the White House is run by a dolt,
And the adults depart, loons exult.
Now McMaster is leaving —
Get ready for grieving;
He’s a victim of John Bolton’s cult.

Farewell To John Dowd (Limerick)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Trump’s lawyers are frequently nayed
And their Mueller advice disobeyed.
Donald’s gut rules his mind,
So John Dowd has resigned.
I wish the man luck getting paid!

Open Limerick To Republicans

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Dear Republicans: Jabber is cheap,
And it won’t force the Donald to keep
Mueller’s Russia probe going.
The danger is growing.
You’re emboldening Trump and his Veep.

Is Donald Doomed? (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

This headline (and the column it quotes from) inspired my limerick: “How Stormy Daniels Could Doom Trump’s Presidency.”

Trump’s porn star could doom him. The key is
Donald’s sluttier and sleazier than SHE is!
He exults in his badness.
So SLUT-scorn her? Madness!
It won’t work; she’s as shameless as HE is.

This Is What Guilt Looks Like (Limerick)

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

The Donald looks guilty as sin;
His behavior betrays his chagrin
And dismay that his luck
Has run out. He can’t duck
His comeuppance, and nor can his kin.

Trump V. McCabe

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

McCabe had been set to retire
On Sunday, but Trump’s filled with ire,
Cuz McCabe’s a supporter
Of Comey. In order
To punish him, Donald says FIRE!

Turnover In Trump-Land (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

This headline cries out for a limerick: “Trump Tires of His Cabinet”

I’m sick of my Cab’net, says Trump.
Dead weight’s got me stuck in a slump.
My key to success is
A team shouting yeses.
Dump ’em all! Watch my poll numbers jump!

Trump Nixes Naysayers (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Don’t you dare tell the President “No!”
If you do, Trump will deem you a foe.
All dissenters are out.
They have lost all their clout.
Only yes-men can star on his show.

Mike “Trump Enabler” Pompeo, Secy of State? (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Mike Pompeo for State? He’s a Yes-Man!
To help Donald, he’ll lie and aggress, man.
He’s a hawkish fanatic.
Loves torture! Dogmatic!
As for climate change? Feel my distress, man!
