Boris v. Trump (Limerick)

Thursday, July 7th, 2022

Boris Johnson’s resigned, at long last.
But at least he admits his time’s passed.
He’s not tried to incite
Armed mobs just for spite…
Or promised loyal felons a blast.

Pence Ain’t A Saint (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 29th, 2022

Headline: “Pence: ‘We must not rest’ until abortion is outlawed in every state”

On One/Six, Pence behaved like a man;
He helped scuttle Trump’s scurrilous plan.
But enough with the praise!
Re abortion, he’d raze
Women’s rights with a nationwide ban.

“Thanking” Trump For Dobbs (Limerick)

Sunday, June 26th, 2022

Headline: “Trump takes credit for Dobbs decision but worries it ‘won’t help him in the future'”

The Donald takes credit for Dobbs.
Does he merit such “credit?” Yes, gobs!
The three judges he picked
For SCOTUS have kicked
Gals back ages … and that was their jobs.

Dear Trump: Stop Spamming Me! (2-Verse Limerick)

Saturday, June 4th, 2022

Dear Trump, I’m confused. Pleased explain
How I got on your list. It’s insane
That you think I would fall
For your bullshit. What gall!
Never try to exploit me again!

I’m most certainly NOT a supporter.
I would much rather be a Trump thwarter.
Save your “donor wall” space
For your idiot base
Who’ll fork over to YOU their last quarter.

Pelted With Produce?

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022

Headline: “Donald Trump worried ‘dangerous’ fruits could be thrown at him by protesters, a new deposition reveals”

Sounds unlikely, unless they’re Italian opera fans.

Elon’s Musky Madness (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 26th, 2022

There’s a new Social Media threat
Making fans of democracy fret:
Under Musk, Trumpy lies
And misinfo will rise;
A calamitous “Net” blow — net-net.

This And That

Tuesday, March 8th, 2022

Headeline: “No Big Macs for Putin as McDonald’s Halts Russia Operations”

(Which probably puts the kibosh on Trump’s visit to pal Putin)

*****

Yesterday temps got to 67 in NYC. Tomorrow they’re predicting snow.

I’m not sure what’s more erratic these days, weather or mail.

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?

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!”

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.
