A Riot Of A Story (Limerick)

Saturday, January 15th, 2022

Here’s the hilarious (and true) inspiration for my latest limerick:

Headline: “Capitol rioters called Nancy Pelosi’s office looking for a ‘lost and found’ for items they left behind on January 6, according to Rep. Jamie Raskin”

With the Capitol Building defaced,
Some One/Sixers departed in haste.
I must ask: Were they stoned
When post-riot they phoned
Pelosi for stuff they’d misplaced?

Republican Projection Project (Limerick)

Saturday, January 15th, 2022

Projection’s a GOP ploy
Which tends to besmirch and annoy;
Falsely claiming that Dems
Commit GOP “gems,”
Their lies are deployed to destroy.

Fast Talker Jim Jordan Won’t Talk (Limerick)

Monday, January 10th, 2022

Headline: “Jan. 6 panel fires back at Jordan over refusal to cooperate”

Said Jim Jordan, I’ve “nothing to hide.”
But it seems he apparently lied;
He’s declined to comply
With the One/Six probe. Why?
I suspect that he’s fit to be tried.

Insurrection Blues (2-Verse Limerick)

Sunday, January 2nd, 2022

We commemorate One/Six this week,
A day that’s both somber and bleak.
Though we greet it with sadness,
Trump basks in its madness.
Wreaking havoc’s his goal, so he’ll speak.

Trump is NOT at all through with his coup,
So he’ll keep spouting things that ain’t true.
For that man with no soul
Has an ace in the hole:
Clueless boosters who’ll back what he’ll spew.

Political Haiku Trio 2

Saturday, January 1st, 2022

A resolution
for GOPers to try:
Stop Being Such Dicks!

Nixing worthy laws
To preserve filibuster?
Hope for us busted.

Donald Trump invents
Conditional Endorsement:
“Avenge me, or else!”

Political Haiku Trio 1

Friday, December 31st, 2021

Is Joe President?
That depends on who you ask.
Democracy weeps.

Right-wing Justices:
“When we like what the State does,
States’ Rights must prevail.”

If the unvaxxed die,
And allies don’t believe it,
Are they really dead?

Cowardly Trumpsters (Limerick)

Saturday, December 25th, 2021

There’s a curse Trumpsters hurl with abandon:
It’s the cuss-in-disguise “Let’s Go Brandon!”
They use code cuz they’re hidin’;
Its gist? “Fuck Joe Biden!”
What a noxious obscenity stand-in!

Marjorie Greene v. Lin Wood (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 12th, 2021

Headline: “QAnon Stars Lin Wood and Marjorie Taylor Greene Battle in EPIC FEUD After Wood Calls Greene a Commie for the Most Insane Reason”

I’m amused by the Greene v. Wood feud:
Crazy gal versus lunatic dude!
“Impeach Biden,” she said,
Which made Lin Wood see red:
That implies “that he won,” mad Wood booed.

Trump-Sycophant McCarthy Can’t Handle The Truth (Limerick)

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

Headline: “McCarthy pulls his 5 GOP members from 1/6 committee after Pelosi rejects 2 of his picks”

When McCarthy named Jordan and Banks
To the One/Six Committee, “No thanks!”
Was the answer he got
And WANTED; his plot
Was to pull his five picks from the ranks.

Yet Another Trump Lawsuit (Limerick)

Wednesday, July 7th, 2021

Subheading: “Trump claims social media companies are ‘government’ actors. Attorneys say his lawsuit is a ‘pathetic joke'”

Donald loves filing spurious suits.
They are fund-raising schemes at their roots.
Plus they give him a chance
To play martyr. Trump’s stance?
He’s our prey, and we’re all in cahoots.

Republican Quandary (Limerick)

Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

Headline: “GOP 2024 hopefuls face challenge: Not upsetting Trump”

“The Hill” tells us something we know
About GOP prez-hopefuls’ woe:
They must NOT rile the prickly
Ex-prez, yet act quickly.
Avoid venom from Trump? Ho, ho, ho!

Patriotic Query (Limerick)

Monday, July 5th, 2021

If you fly the American flag,
Many think you’re a Trumpster. I gag
At this terrible blunder,
Then ponder and wonder:
How’d our flag get a GOP tag?

Trump’s Revenge Tour (Limerick)

Monday, June 28th, 2021

Headline: “Trump’s revenge tour begins with eyes on one Ohio Republican”

Boorish Trump’s seeking vengeance on tour.
His goal? Instill fear and ensure
That the pols who defied him
And dare to deride him
Are shunned, cast aside like manure.

The Boor Tour (Limerick)

Tuesday, June 8th, 2021

To this headline, an “OY!” and a limerick: “Donald Trump To Go On Speaking Tour With Bill O’Reilly To Talk Up His Presidency”

Two fellows, each one a big boor,
Have announced their December joint tour.
It’s O’Reilly and Trump;
Each speaker, a grump,
A liar, a letch, and a snore.

Trump’s Latest Lie (Limerick)

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021

Reinstatement will happen this year
In August, claims Trump. So I fear
That derangement won’t end
And our nation can’t mend
While treachery’s still his career.

Our Nixed Commission Fix (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Our land’s in a terrible fix
When Republican Senators nix
A bipartisan group
Meant to get us the scoop
On what happened this year on 1/6.

Trumps Dog-GONE Blog (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Headline: “Trump blog page shuts down for good”

Big news: Seems the Donald has dumped
His new blog because int’rest has slumped.
Even fans found it boring.
(And some were caught snoring.)
It appears that the Donald’s been trumped.

If Trump Disappeared, Who’d Hunt For Him? (Limerick)

Monday, May 31st, 2021

This comment by former GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock made me laugh and inspired my latest limerick: “If Donald Trump disappeared tomorrow, I don’t think you’d have many Republicans in the search party. Maybe a few prosecutors. But not Republicans.”

If Trump disappeared, just how hard
Would pols look for that large tub of lard?
Who but those with indictments
Would have the incitements
To secure him in jail under guard?

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.

GOP Pols think Trump’s still relevant, but IS he? (Limerick)

Saturday, May 22nd, 2021

If you’re wond’ring how Trump’s blog has fared,
Donald’s blog posts are NOT widely shared.
His traffic has slumped,
And his fans don’t seem pumped.
Could it be they’re no longer ensnared?
