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.

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.

Limerick Ode To Donald Trump’s “Barely-A-Blog”

Wednesday, May 5th, 2021

Do you remember all those claims that Trump would be launching a “social media platform” that would “redefine social media?” Well, it’s been launched … and it doesn’t:

Have you seen Trump’s new “platform?” It’s sad!
“Redefines” social medya? Egad!
A mere blog! That is all
That it is. So banal
And bare-bones – the mere inverse of rad!

Liz Cheney Clickbait (Limerick)

Monday, May 3rd, 2021

Headline: “Scoop: GOP leaders threaten Cheney ouster”

Will Liz Cheney be ousted from leadership?
That’s a question that media readership
Has been asking these days,
Lured by clickbaiting ways
Used by writers in columns and Tweetership.

Budget Director Blues (Limerick)

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

Neera Tanden’s Budget Director nomination appears doomed because … “MEAN Tweets!” Double standard, much?

Trump’s Tweeting career was extensive,
His Twitter posts mean and offensive.
Did this mar the support
From his party? (Loud snort!)
But those “MEAN” Tanden tweets? They’re expensive!

Parlez-vous Parler? (Limerick)

Wednesday, January 20th, 2021

Parler’s back, but its site is awry.
Tech troubles abound, as folks try
To communicate there;
A disheart’ning affair,
If you’re seeking a safe place to lie.

Banished and Bereft (Limerick)

Saturday, January 9th, 2021

Donald Trump doesn’t “get” the to-do;
So WHAT if he triggered a coup!
But he’s run out of luck
And for once he can’t duck
The backlash from acts he should rue.

Donald Trump, who’s a bully full-blown,
Lost his bullhorn; his phone’s a mere phone.
No more weapon of choice —
Just a much-weakened voice;
He’s bereft of his base and alone.

Banned At Last (Limerick)

Friday, January 8th, 2021

Donald Trump has been banished from Twitter,
And Donald’s undoubtedly bitter.
His corrupt tweet decorum
Has cost him this forum.
Now how’ll he pass time on the shitter?

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!

Liars Flee “Censorship” (Limerick)

Monday, November 16th, 2020

NY Times Headline: “Fact-Checked on Facebook and Twitter, Conservatives Switch Their Apps

“Since the election, millions have migrated to alternative social media and media sites like Parler, Rumble and Newsmax.”

If you’re fact-checked on Facebook or Twitter,
There’s no need to feel outraged or bitter;
Join Parler or Rumble.
The folks there don’t grumble
At lies. They just spread ’em and titter.

Political News Madness (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Political news drives me mad,
And it makes me both angry and sad.
Yet its pull is so brutal,
Resistance is futile.
Addicted to Twitter? A tad.

Manic Donald (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Headline: “Trump’s Tweeting Even More Erratic Than Usual”

Donald Trump sits atop of the Feds
And behaves like a madman on meds.
His tweets appear manic,
Galvanic, Satanic.
Can I panic at “Off with their heads!”?

Limerick Ode To The Horn-Blower in Chief (Limerick)

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Trump Tweet: “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!)…”

Trump’s “wisdom” is “great and unmatched.”
(Donald’s claim via Twitter, dispatched
In a horn-blowing tweet.)
Seems his feed is replete
With proof that Trump’s brain has been snatched.

The Victim-In-Chief Lashes Out (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

Headline: “Trump Says House Investigations Are ‘Bullshit’”

Poor Donald is all in a stew;
He complains we’re engaged in a COUP.
Extra hostile on Twitter,
He’s angry and bitter.
What’s a “victim” to do? Tweet and sue.

Donald’s High Anxiety (Limerick)

Friday, December 7th, 2018

The Donald seems anxious today;
His tweets appear frantic. They bray
About Mueller in ways
That suggests a deep craze…
As the hunter locks on to his prey.

Limerick Ode To An Internet Troll

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Headline: “Donald Trump, Internet troll”

Is the Donald an Internet troll?
He’s embraced a provocative role
Via lump-of-coal tweets
Filled with lies, memes, and bleats
That betray the huge hole in his soul.

Roseanne Reboot Booted (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Roseanne’s tweets are a vile, putrid sump,
So her network has opted to dump
The reboot. She’s expelled
And ironically held
To a much higher standard than Trump.

Our Petulant President (Limerick)

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Trump dishonors the war dead via Memorial Day Weekend tweets:

On Twitter, Trump’s plaintive today.
To prepare for tomorrow? No way!
It’s not war dead he mourns,
But a “witch hunt” he scorns —
Selfish, petulant Trump on display!

Blockhead Donald’s Failed Blockade (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Headline: “Trump can’t block users on Twitter, federal judge rules”

Poor Trump! How he hates to be mocked
By mean tweets! So he angrily blocked
The accounts of those writers,
Who sued cuz they’re fighters,
And won. Snowflake Donald is focked.

Our Tweeter-In-Chief (Limerick)

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

I must learn to ignore Donald’s tweets;
For the most part, they’re mean, lie-filled bleats.
But his posts are addicting;
Soon statements conflicting
Will spew, as the cycle repeats.
