Trump, The Extortionist (Limerick)

Tuesday, August 30th, 2022

Headline: “Trump Is Trying To Extort America”

Donald Trump is so desp’rate to thwart
Prosecution, he’s apt to resort
To additional crimes,
Like extortion ofttimes;
Indict Trump! Get that felon to court!

Trump’s Legal Quandary (Limerick)

Wednesday, August 17th, 2022

Washington Post Headline: “Trump is rushing to hire seasoned lawyers — but he keeps hearing ‘No’”

Trump’s in great legal trouble. Hooray!
He needs aid on the double — today!
But attorneys with skill
Won’t bend to his will;
The response he keeps getting is NAY!

Garland v. Trump

Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Dear Donald, it seems that your bluff
Has been called, and in you’re in quite the huff.
Garland’s move to unseal
That warrant? Big deal!
Seems you’ve shot yourself right in the duff.

Trump’s Trumped-Up Victimhood (Limerick)

Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Donald’s so-called “unjustified raid”
Was approved by a judge. Don’t be played!
T’s were crossed. I’s were dotted.
His crimes have been spotted.
Our nation by Trump’s been betrayed.

My Open Limerick-Letter To Would-Be Trump Attorneys

Tuesday, August 9th, 2022

Trump’s besieged and (I’ve heard) on the hunt
For lawyers to take on the stunt
Of defending his ass.
Dear Esqs, you should pass…
Or at least get full payment up front.

Probing Limerick

Thursday, January 27th, 2022

Headline: “Plea Deal for Man Involved In Matt Gaetz Probe”

If a man “dates” a minor, then smite ’im,
And kindly don’t call them an “item.”
An underaged girl
Shouldn’t be given a whirl…
And the law should step in and indict ’im.

An Out-Of-Control U.S. Supreme Court? (Limerick)

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021

Headline: “Supreme Court appears skeptical of New York’s restrictive gun-control law”

New York gun control’s likely to slip,
Cuz the highest Fed Court lacks a grip
On our big city needs
To forestall deadly deeds.
I just hope it won’t shoot from the hip!

Isn’t The Trump Grand Jury Grand? (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 26th, 2021

Will Trump’s CFO drop a dime
On the Donald? It’s surely high time!
A grand jury’s convened,
So here’s hoping that fiend
Is convicted of many a crime.

Trump Lashes Out Against Letitia James (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 19th, 2021

After learning that New York AG Letitia James is pursuing a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, and that she’s working with Manhattan DA Cy Vance, Donald Trump posted a lengthy blog rant, which could have benefited from paragraphing … and sanity.

Donald Trump seems distressed and upset.
It appears he is starting to fret
That he’ll spend his last days
In prolonged prison stays.
James and Vance pose a serious threat!

Gaetz In Dire Straits? (Limerick)

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Headline: “Matt Gaetz’s disastrous Tucker Carlson interview, explained”

The Republican Rep. Matthew Gaetz
Is accused of some underage dates.
His denials are odd.
(Even Tuck finds them flawed.)
Here’s hoping that prison awaits.

Limerick Ode To the “Unity” Community

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

I cringe at each “unity” call
From Donald’s defenders. What gall!
Still making excuses
For Donald’s abuses,
They’re enablers and hypocrites all!

Pondering Pardons (Limerick)

Thursday, December 24th, 2020

Trump’s been pardoning felons galore,
Cuz Donald’s a thief at his core.
He finds something to laud
In both war crimes and fraud.
You’re scum? That’s what pardons are for!

Will It Never End? (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

Enduring Trump’s reign has been hard;
Our nation’s been tainted and scarred.
So this question’s arisen:
Is tweeting in prison
Permitted? Please tell me it’s barred!

Trump Musing About Losing (Limerick)

Thursday, October 29th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Ponders Being a Loser”

I hear tell that the Donald’s been musing
About maybe, conceivably losing.
It’s a frightening thought,
For his future is fraught;
Relocation to prison is bruising.

Voting-Fraudster-In-Chief (Limerick)

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Headline: “Trump Committed Felony Urging Supporters to Vote Twice”

Donald Trump told supporters: “Vote twice,”
Which is awful, unlawful advice.
His words aren’t just flawed;
He’s encouraging fraud.
Yet another Trump crime with no price.

Trump’s Plain-Sight-Crime Defense (Limerick)

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

Headline: “Trump’s novel corruption defense: I do it in plain sight”

Trump keeps doing misdeeds in plain sight
To induce the belief they’re no blight
On the laws of our land,
That they breach no command;
If illegal, he’d hide them all. Right?

Donald’s “She’s Not My Type” Defense (Limerick)

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

Headline: “Trump’s repeated defense against assault accusations: call the accuser unattractive”

Donald’s message: I’m very selective
When viewing a victim, prospective,
So her rape claim’s a lie,
And it’s obvious why:
She isn’t “my type!” She’s defective!

“Otherwise Blameless?” (Quatrain)

Saturday, March 9th, 2019

Headline: “How could anyone think Paul Manafort lived an ‘otherwise blameless’ life?”

NOT a limerick:

Judge Ellis while sentencing Paul
Said his life has been “otherwise blameless.”
But that claim just ain’t true. Not at all!
Seems both Paul and Judge Ellis are shameless.

Open 3-Verse Limerick To Donald Trump

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

I won’t ask you, dear Trump, not to lie.
You can’t stop, so don’t bother to try.
And nor will I ask
You to do any task
That requires a warm-hearted guy.

And there’s really no need to pretend
That the law isn’t something you bend
To benefit you
And a very small few:
Your children … and maybe a friend.

I won’t EVEN say, Donald don’t whine.
You can’t help it, I know, so that’s fine.
I’ve a single request,
And it isn’t “Be Best.”
I am begging you: Kindly Resign!

Trump’s Team Of Crooks (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Slate: “The DOJ has made a pretty thorough case that the Trump campaign was filled with crooks.”

Trump’s campaign-team was teeming with crooks
It surely was one for the books;
His affinity for
That felonious corps
Was driven by greed. (Not good looks.)
