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.

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.

What Will It Take For Pence To Stop Repeating Trump’s Lies? (Limerick)

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

My latest limerick was inspired by a recent Mike Pence op-ed in The Daily Signal. Here’s how he begins: “After an election marked by significant voting irregularities and numerous instances of officials setting aside state election law, I share the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Dear Mike Pence, I am forced to surmise
That you haven’t stopped backing Trump’s lies.
He endangered your life!
Yet your statements are rife
With Trump myths. That’s bizarre and unwise.

Obsequious Republicans (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2021

GOPers are weary and sick
Of defending that scurrilous Dick.
Yet they’re loath to abort
Their debased Trump support.
Are they cowards, or frauds? Take your pick!

Two-Faced Mitch (Limerick)

Monday, February 15th, 2021

Mitch is trying to have it both ways:
First he joins in the “Don’t Convict!” nays.
Then he spouts a critique
Of Trump’s actions, with pique.
For hypocrisy (rank!) he wants praise?

In Acquitting Trump, GOP Senators Acquit Themselves Poorly (Limerick)

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

Trump’s acquittal by GOP wimps
Gave us more than a generous glimpse
At pols who enrolled
In the “Trump Cult” and sold
Off their souls; fawning wretches and simps!

Yet Another “If Trump Could Write Limericks”

Thursday, February 11th, 2021

With Trump finally out of office, I thought I was done writing “If Trump Could Write Limericks.” But apparently not.

So my crowd got a bit out of hand?
No big deal! I would never command
Them to kill, even maim,
And my language was tame.
This impeachment hoax ought to be banned!

Them’s Fightin’ Words! (Limerick)

Tuesday, February 9th, 2021

Headline: “Trump’s impeachment lawyers argue he only wanted supporters to ‘fight’ in ‘the figurative sense'”

Trump repeatedly told his mob “Fight!”
But he claims that he never meant “Smite!”
Funny thing though: his crowd
(MAGA-Cultish and Proud)
Clearly knew how to earn Trump’s delight.

Trump’s Case, In Brief (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

Trump denies he incited a coup;
Says his voter fraud claims are all true;
And rejects any blame.
But the rioters claim:
“We did JUST what Trump told us to do.”

Dear Republicans (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

Get over the heinous attack
On the Capitol? Sorry, you’re wack!
If that’s your advice;
That the Dems should play nice
And forget it, then you don’t know jack!

Kevin McCarthy Makes Nicey-Nicey With Trump (Limerick)

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

Headline: “McCarthy Kisses Trump’s Ring After Briefly Acknowledging Ex-POTUS’s Role In Insurrection”

Rep. McCarthy’s still kissing the ring
Of the Donald — a very odd thing.
You’d expect some disquiet
From Donald Trump’s riot…
Which endangered both left and right wing.

Capitol Offense (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

Trump This Morning:

Q: “What is your role in what happened at the Capitol? What is your personal responsibility?”

President Trump: “If you read my speech…people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.”

The Donald is NOT done aggressin’;
Instead, he continues expressin’
A contrition-free stance.
Admit fault? Not a chance!
It’s so good to see Trump’s learned a lesson.
