Joe Manchin’s Fantasy (Limerick)

Sunday, June 6th, 2021

Headline: “Fox News’ Chris Wallace Confronts Joe Manchin Over ‘Being Naive’ About Bipartisan Cooperation”

How can Manchin remain so deluded?
Were he lucid, he SHOULD have concluded
That bipartisanship
Is a fantasy trip
That will leave Biden’s vision denuded.

McConnell v. Biden (Limerick)

Friday, May 7th, 2021

Headline: “McConnell says he’s ‘100%’ focused on stopping Biden admin”

Mitch McConnell has one loathsome goal:
It’s to block Joseph Biden; the hole
In his soul’s been exposed,
Mitch’s mind’s long been closed;
V. Obama, he played the same role.

The Right Has Lost Its Mind (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 27th, 2021

OMG! Joe’s about to ban meat!
He’ll decree that you only can eat
Stuff that grows in the ground.
No more beef-beer around!
(Them’s the claims from the wing-nut elite.)

Neanderthal Limerick

Thursday, March 4th, 2021

Headline: “Biden calls states’ relaxing virus restrictions, including mask mandates, ‘Neanderthal thinking’”

Relaxing state Covid restrictions
Conflicts with the science predictions.
It’s “Neanderthal thinking,”
Says Biden, not shrinking
From words that condemn derelictions.

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.

Manchin Throws His Weight Around (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

Headline: “Manchin flexes muscle in 50-50 Senate”

Joe Manchin’s extortionate power
In wielding his vote makes me glower.
He’s unreas’nably bold
With threats to withhold
Key votes, hoping Biden will cower.

A Nickname For Trump? (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 17th, 2021

Headline: “In televised town hall, Biden says he wants to end national fixation on ‘the former guy'”

Though it’s boring and lacking in bite,
Biden’s nickname for Trump seems just right;
It’s “the former guy.” Wow!
Biden, please take a bow
For a name Trump will hate, cuz it’s trite.

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!

Roiled By A Rolex? (Limerick)

Sunday, January 24th, 2021

Oh the horror! Joe owns something nice:
It’s a Rolex. And this is a vice???
Seems a Dem who’s adorned
With a Rolex is scorned.
But Republicans? Need you ask twice?

The Letter Trump Left For Biden (Limerick)

Saturday, January 23rd, 2021

I can’t divulge my sources, but I managed to get hold of the letter Trump left for Biden:

Dear Joe, they insist that I write you.
But in truth, I would much rather fight you.
So I’ll leave you with this:
May you NEVER know bliss.
I can’t wait till some cronies indict you.

Biden Cabinet Delays (Limerick)

Saturday, January 23rd, 2021

Where Biden’s Cabinet Stands: “President Joe Biden took office on January 20 without key members of his Cabinet in place after the Senate moved more slowly to schedule confirmation hearings for his nominees than it had for previous presidents.”

GOPers are shocked and appalled.
They’re embittered and terribly galled:
How DARE Joe embrace
Dem goals! A disgrace!
Let’s ensure that his Cab’net is stalled.

Non-Existent Trump Vaccine Distribution Plan (Limerick)

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

Headline: “Biden inheriting nonexistent coronavirus vaccine distribution plan and must start ‘from scratch,’ sources say”

Donald’s plan for vaccine distribution?
Non-existent, it seems. The solution?
Starting over, from scratch.
It’s a Trumpy “Here, catch,”
From a “team” known for poor execution.

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.

GOP Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Thursday, December 17th, 2020

“Republicans suddenly discover they don’t like naughty words”

O! M! G! Biden’s aide used a word
That is naughty! What outrage it’s stirred
In the horde that ignored
All the curses Trump roared.
They’re a vile, hypocritical herd.
