Trump’s Fake Emergency Power Grab (Limerick)

A fake crisis; Trump seizes more power,
As obsequious ass-kissers cower.
He raids Pentagon cash
And a FEMA funds stash,
And democracy dies by the hour.

    Well done, Mad! Here’s my version:

    Trump proclaims it’s a national emergency.
    Then he says that there’s really no urgency.
    He’s all over the map,
    And should shut his damned trap,
    But he can’t stop his bullshit’s assurgency.

    Good one, Konrad, and you taught me a word: assurgency.

    It’s a new one for me too. I love words!

    Konrad, as I wrote back in 2015:

    I attempt to learn new words each day–
    At least one, sometimes two, but they stray;
    Seems as new words are learned,
    The old ones are spurned:
    “You’re evicted!” those brain-hoggers bray.
