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 Won The 1st Debate Bigly! Who Knew?

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

Trump Tweet: “I won the debate big, based on compilation of polls etc. Thank you!”

Trump Tweet: “Why would I allow the Debate Commission to change the rules for the second and third Debates when I easily won last time?”

Donald claims that he won the debate.
Seems he thinks his performance first-rate.
All the polls (so Trump says)
Prove Joe lost to the Prez.
But as always, for proof we await.

Apologize? Hell No! (Limerick)

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

Headline: “Biden Says He’s Not Sorry for Calling Trump Racist, Clown, Liar, ‘Putin’s Puppy’ During Debate: ‘Everything I Said Was True’”

Joe called Trump “liar,” “racist,” “fool,” “clown.”
“Are you sorry?” he’s asked with a frown.
Why should Biden regret
Any apt epithet?
There’s no reason for Joe to back down!

Limerick Ode To The Defiler-In-Chief

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020

Headline: “Undecided Voter Says Trump Acted Like ‘a Crackhead’ During Debate, Will Now Back Biden”

The presidency’s been defiled
By the Donald, a petulant child,
Whose debate-style is rude
And disruptive, vile, crude–
Like a crackhead, but even more wild.

Trump’s Demented Accusations (Limerick)

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Headline: “‘The president thinks his best case is made in urine’: Biden campaign mocks Trump’s drug-testing demand”

“Joe’s demented,” says Trump about Biden.
“With that brain, he should NOT be presidin’.
While debatin’ I’ll best him;
If not, we must test him
For drugs. Then we’ll know what he’s hidin’.”

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.

Another Promise Unkept (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Trump way back in 2016: “I am the law and order candidate.”

“Law and Order’s” a Trump campaign vow,
But the promise that Trump’s making now
Is a ’16 repeat
That he broke. So unseat
Donald Trump and let Joe take a bow.

Trump-Logic (Limerick)

Friday, August 28th, 2020

Blaming Biden for civil unrest
Falls afoul of ye old straight-face test.
Cuz the last time I checked
Trump was prez, and he’s wrecked
Our great nation. (So much for “Be Best.”)

Applauding Mayor Pete (Limerick)

Sunday, March 1st, 2020

I’m bracing for the angry comments likely to come my way:

Mayor Pete, thanks for ending your race.
Though it isn’t your time, you’re an ace.
By shrinking your lane,
The “Stop Bernie” train
Might succeed — that’s the challenge we face.

Law-Flouter in Chief (Limerick)

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Headline: “Trump Just Committed More High Crimes on the White House Lawn”

For his upcoming ’20 campaign,
Trump solicited help from Ukraine.
China too, as we’ve seen
Right in public! Trump’s keen
To flout laws for his personal gain.

One Crime Too Many? (Limerick)

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019

Trump’s a knave who has gone way too far.
(So too, has his pal AG Barr.)
An impeachment is nigh.
There’s no choice, and here’s why:
Trump behaves like a tyrant and czar.

Open Limerick To Joe Biden

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

I joked, yesterday, that because Biden called Trump an “existential threat,” dictionaries were bracing for the existential threat of site crashes.

But apparently I’m not quite through with the topic. So here’s my limerick:

Dear Joe: Dumping Donald’s essential.
His evil’s widespread — pestilential.
He’s a “threat existential,”
His wrongs, consequential.
But the use of big words? Unprudential!

Open Limerick To Joe Biden

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

Dear Joe Biden, I liked you as Veep,
But it’s clear that you simply can’t keep
From invading the space
Of gals. It’s off-base,
And the price of such action’s now steep.

Trump v. Biden (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

Trump to anchors, as quoted by the New York Times’ Peter Baker:

When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.

When you think I am making a gaffe,
It’s on purpose to make people laugh.
But Biden is dumb,
Which explains much or some
Of the lame things he says — at least half.

Trump’s “Blame Everyone But Himself” Mentality (Limerick)

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

“As wave of attempted bombing continues, Trump chooses to blame the victims.”

Who’s to blame for the bombs that were sent
To kill people Trump loves to torment
Via Twitter and speeches?
The victims, Trump screeches.
The Divider-In-Chief must repent!

Press Biding Its Time Till It Gets Serious About The Issues (2-Verse Limerick)

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Anyone else sick of the breathless “will he or won’t he” Biden stories? Well, not to be outdone by all that foolishness, the Washington Post “inadvertently published” a website story under this headline: “Biden to launch a presidential campaign.”

Biden cov’rage is dumb as it gets:
Now the Washington Post sends regrets
For its story proclaiming
Joe’s running. It’s blaming
A “technical glitch.” Cool your jets!

Most journos don’t bother to air
Real issues. That’s work they can’t bear!
Seems their duties they’re ceding.
Instead they keep feeding
Us nonsense. So reader beware!

Open Limerick To Joe Biden

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

I’m so sick of these headlines: “Will he or won’t he? Biden still trying to decide.”

Look, I really like (and sympathize with) Joe Biden. But it’s time to shit or get off the pot.

Dear Joe, it is time to decide.
When you hedge, you help others divide
Our great party, which needs
To get out of the weeds
And ensure that a Dem does preside.

A Heavenly Quote (Limerick)

Friday, March 21st, 2014

While discussing Obamacare and the Healthcare.gov roll-out, Biden said Obama deserves sainthood. Now this strikes me as a trifle excessive. On the other hand, Joe Biden is a humorist’s godsend.

A Heavenly Quote (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Veep Biden, your lack of restraint
Is often amusing and quaint.
But you’ve gone overboard
(Don’t you think — Oh my lord!)
In calling Obama a saint.

Limerick Ode To Mitt “Sore Loser” Romney

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Mitt “Sore Loser” Romney doesn’t use the word “bribes” in rationalizing his loss to his donors, but he sure comes mighty close:

A week after losing the election to President Obama, Mitt Romney blamed his overwhelming electoral loss on what he said were big “gifts” that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies, including young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

In a conference call on Wednesday afternoon with his national finance committee, Mr. Romney said that the president had followed the “old playbook” of wooing specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people,” Mr. Romney explained — with targeted gifts and initiatives.

If I understand Romney correctly, winning votes because of policies that benefit the middle class, minorities, and the poor is bad. But winning votes and tons of donor cash because of policies that will make rich people even richer is just fine and dandy. So glad we cleared that up.

Limerick Ode To Mitt “Sore Loser” Romney
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Mitt Romney is sore-loser cross,
Blaming targeted “gifts” for his loss.
Mitt in essence describes
Good programs as bribes
To Blacks, Youths, Hispanics. What dross!

Open Limerick To Angry Republicans

Open Limerick To Angry Republicans
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The Republicans rail round the clock:
“How on earth was Mitt beat by Barack?”
They have theories galore,
But they need just one more:
It’s the policies, stupid! Take stock!
