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

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.)

Trump’s Favorite Defenses (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

“Never happened!” (Trump’s fav’rite defense)
His use of that claim is immense.
When it fails (all the time)
Trump denies it’s a crime,
Unwisely surmising we’re dense.

Limerick Ode To Trump’s Inauguration Fund

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Trump’s Inaugural Fund looks suspicious;
Monies raised were bizarrely ambitious,
And the numbers don’t jibe.
Were there pay-offs? A bribe?
Major windfalls for Trump injudicious?

I Smell A Rat In The White House (Limerick)

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Headline: “Maybe Trump should try harder not to sound like a mob boss”

Dear Donald, it’s best not to choose
Mob-boss lingo, like “rat,” to confuse
And placate your base.
It does NOT help your case
To tweet jargon a crim’nal would use.

The Beauty Of A Butina Deal (Limerick)

Monday, December 10th, 2018

Headline: “Accused Russian spy Maria Butina appears poised to plead guilty”

Donald Trump should be tied up in knots,
Cuz Maria Butina knows lots,
And it looks like she’ll squeal;
She has just made a deal.
Oy gevalt! Trump may actually plotz.

“Smocking Gun” Mockery (Limerick)

Monday, December 10th, 2018

From a Trump tweet today: “No Smocking Gun…No Collusion.”

Donald tweets about guns that ain’t “smocking,”
Which occasions a whole lot of mocking.
Poor Trump’s in a bind,
For soon he will find
Much bad news and “clean” coal in his stocking.

The GOP’s Silence Is Deafening (Limerick)

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

From Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Victoria Brownworth: “It’s extraordinary that the GOP leadership has said not one word about the events of the last 24 hrs. A sitting US president has been named as a felon. A felon. And they are silent.”

Now that Donald has clearly been named
As a criminal, who could be blamed
For wondering when
Republican men
Will acknowledge their party’s been shamed?

Trump: “Witness Tamperer In Chief” (Limerick)

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Headline: “Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Accuses Trump of Witness Tampering”

Donald’s latest illegal pursuit:
Witness tamp’ring on Twitter. The coot
Injudiciously hurts
His case; his tweet-blurts
Furnish proof Trump can never refute.
