Our Brave Oval Knave (Limerick)

Monday, February 26th, 2018

This CNN headline cries out for a limerick: “Trump on Florida shooting: ‘I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn’t have a weapon'”

That you’d bravely and willingly go
T’wards a gunman to save
High school students! You knave,
How’re those bone spurs of yours? What a schmo!

Open Limerick To NRA TOOLS

“Armed teachers protecting our schools?”

And your storage cost drops.

Emulating cops?

(Yes this really happened at Wal-Mart.)
