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.

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.

Limerick Duo, Celebrating Trump’s Departure and Biden’s Inauguration

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

Dear Donald, good riddance, buh-bye!
I cheer your departure. Here’s why:
You’re a liar and thief.
You’ve caused death, mayhem, grief,
And you’ve left our great nation awry.

Dear Joe Biden, the challenge you’re facing
Is immense, cuz the man you’re replacing
Has done infinite harm,
But we’re betting the farm
On YOU to erase the debasing.

Mitch Finally Admits Biden Won (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 16th, 2020

Mitch McConnell should show some contrition
For his way overdue recognition
That the winner is Joe;
This delay helped Trump sow
Mass suspicion and threats of sedition.

Biden Elected Yet Again (Limerick)

Monday, December 14th, 2020

The Electoral College has met.
Biden’s won yet again, but I’ll bet
That Trump and his cronies
(Those liars and phonies)
Won’t let up, though their threat is all wet.

Time’s Up! (Limerick)

Saturday, December 12th, 2020

Dear Donald, enough with your moaning
And bitching and whining and groaning!
Your lies about wins
Lead a long list of sins.
My suggestion: Some prison atoning.

Denying The Undeniable (Limerick)

Friday, December 11th, 2020

I despise all the “Biden Deniers;”
Those sniveling cowards and liars,
Who follow, unthinking,
Trump’s lead without blinking.
It’s high time that the Trump Cult retires.

Trump’s Latest Club? (Limerick)

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

Trump will soon join a club that’s exclusive.
He’s resisting, though entry’s elusive.
Here’s the obvious rub:
The Ex-Presidents’ Club
Views the Donald as nuts and abusive.

The Haunting (Limerick)

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

Trump’s falsehoods, complaints, and self-praise
And his fraudulent suits haunt our days:
“Stop The Steal!” he demands
And as “RINOS” rebrands
Those whose “nays” thwart his law-breaking ways.

Swindler-In-Chief (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 9th, 2020

It’s over; Trump knows that he lost,
But he’ll keep filing suits that are tossed,
Cuz as long as his base
Thinks he still has a case,
They will fund him, whatever the cost.

Limerick Ode To Our Liar-In-Chief

Monday, December 7th, 2020

Headline: “Trump Claims He’d Be Gracious, If He Lost”

Our pugnacious prez claims he’d be “gracious”
If he lost. (His lie-library’s spacious.)
Donald did in fact lose,
But his goal’s to confuse,
Bilk, and bully — that’s “Trump the Mendacious.”

Con-Man-In-Chief (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020

Headline: “Trump and crew cash in with election fraud ‘scare stories'”

Vile Donald is making a pile
From election fraud lies filled with bile;
Our nation’s chief sleaze,
Via fund-raising pleas,
Is still bilking his marks Trumpy-style.

Delicate-Flower-In-Chief (Limerick)

Monday, November 30th, 2020

Poor Donald’s a delicate flower;
The mere thought of his loss makes him glower.
So he lies and brings suits;
Claims they’re all in cahoots
To prevent him from staying in power.

The Boy Who Cried Fraud (Limerick)

Monday, November 30th, 2020

Though it’s nearly a month since Joe won,
The Donald continues to shun
The fact that he lost;
He wants Biden-votes tossed,
And cries “FRAUD!” What’s his proof? Trump has none.

If Joe Biden Could Write Limericks

Sunday, November 29th, 2020

“The president-elect picked up 87 votes (net) after President Trump spent $3 Million targeting the heavily-Democrat areas of Milwaukee & Dane Counties.”

Dear Donald, great thanks for the gain
I just got in Milwaukee and Dane.
You spent three million bucks
For a recount and, shucks…
Now I’m winning by more. Worth the pain?

Yay, Michigan! (Limerick)

Monday, November 23rd, 2020

Headline: “Michigan certifies Biden victory in another blow to Trump”

Donald’s Michigan thievery’s failed;
His electoral heist scheme curtailed.
Joe’s electors are IN;
A democracy WIN!
How refreshing that justice prevailed.

Our Vendetta-In-Chief (Limerick)

Monday, November 23rd, 2020

Headline: “Vindictive Trump Seeks To Undermine Biden”

The Donald’s vindictive and mean,
So he’s venting his voting-loss spleen
And punishing Joe
And the nation. The woe
Trump’s inflicting is foul and obscene.

Our Brazen Almost-Ex-President (Limerick)

Thursday, November 19th, 2020

The Donald keeps getting more brazen
With the voter fraud nonsense he’s raisin’.
Trump lies and conspires,
Throws bombs and sets fires,
As he blocks the Prez Joe Biden phase-in.
