Patriotic Query (Limerick)

Monday, July 5th, 2021

If you fly the American flag,
Many think you’re a Trumpster. I gag
At this terrible blunder,
Then ponder and wonder:
How’d our flag get a GOP tag?

Trump/Pence Flag Abuse (Limerick)

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Donald Trump was again on the hunt
For distraction — a tax-funded stunt,
So he told his Veep-peon
To locate a knee on
The ground and to flag the affront.

Taking umbrage at “sins” and “misdeeds”
Is Mike’s hobby; that’s how the guy feeds.
Off he flies to a game
With his pre-ordained claim:
Those Flag-bashing blacks are bad seeds!

A Quintet Of Limericks & Some Quips about Trump, the NFL, Kneeling, & Fake Patriotism

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Dear Donald: Ballplayers have a 1st amendment right to peacefully protest racism, just as you have a 1st amendment right to make an ass of yourself on Twitter.


You must stand for the flag; don’t go kneeling!
Such a “diss” at a game sends Trump reeling.
How he’ll rant and he’ll rage!
I suspect at his age
Trump can’t bend without fainting or squealing.


Neo-Nazis can protest at will,
Wielding arms as they menace and kill.
That’s just fine with Prez Trump.
But black athletes? He’d dump
’Em for kneeling; he treats ’em like swill.


Trump Tweet: “The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!”

And now some edits for accuracy:

“The issue of kneeling has EVERYTHING to do with race. It is about respect for TRUMP! NFL must respect ME!”


Being Jewish, I know little about kneeling … except that it hurts.

Why is church kneeling good, but field kneeling a “diss?”


Trump’s been having one hell of a day;
Each athlete and flag-tweet foray
Ran aground with a thud,
Like turds in the mud.
Former allies are fleeing him. YAY!


I’ve been waiting anxiously for evidence of Trump-voter remorse.

But I never expected it to come from Trump-donor team owners!


Despite Kelly’s strong will and precision,
The Donald needs MORE supervision;
He’s divisive and worse.
Hence my need to write verse
And provide him with well-earned derision.


I can’t catch. I can’t run. I can’t throw.
I’ve no clue where those ball things should go.
But the Donald’s a tease,
And his sports-feud re knees
And flags makes me yearn to go pro.


Just Call It The McPettiness Express

Monday, October 27th, 2008

I’m a bit late on this.  But I was amused to read that Joe Klein has suffered the same fate as Maureen Dowd — banishment from the McCain / Palin planes:

Just Call It The McPettiness Express
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Beware of the wrath of McCain.
If you’re mean you’ll be barred from his plane.
You’ll join Klein and Mo Dowd —
That non-patriot crowd.
Wave goodbye to the “straight talk” campaign.
