Trump’s Love Affair With Strongmen (Limerick)

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

The Donald heaps praise upon strongmen;
Evil despots quite clearly the wrong men
To admire or laud.
Trump’s a terrified fraud;
Naught but one of those cowed “get along” men.

Trump v. Putin? (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Donald’s suddenly mired in disputes
With pal Putin. I’ve spotted the roots
Of their low in relations
And dreadful vibrations:
Trump must “prove” that they’re NOT in cahoots.

Which Liar Should We Believe? (Limerick)

Saturday, April 8th, 2017

The Donald lays blame on Assad
For chemical warfare, but Vlad
Says Assad’s stash is barren;
Just rebels have sarin.
When two liars diverge, who’s the fraud?

Trump’s Secret Limerick To Putin

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Dear Vlad, I can’t publicly say
How grateful I am. Your display
Of email artillery
Helped me to pillory
Hill’ry. Your bribe’s on the way.

R U Proud Of Yourself, McCain? (Limerick)

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

After the New York Times published Putin’s op ed column, Senator McCain decided to one-up him by writing an opinion piece for Pravda (the official paper of the Russian Communist Party.) Unfortunately, he didn’t realize there are two Pravdas. Even more unfortunately, McCain ended up being published in the wrong Pravda.

Pravda.ru, the news outlet that actually published McCain’s piece, is an electronic news website founded in 1999. Even though the website also bears the name Pravda, it is not connected to Pravda newspaper. The website has English and Russian editions and covers everything from politics to fashion and celebrities.

R U Proud Of Yourself, McCain? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There’s someone on John McCain’s staff
Who made an embarrassing gaffe:
His haste he shall rue—
Pravda-r-u won’t do
For a piece by McCain. What a laugh!
