    UNCONSCIONABLE – {rhyme and coda}

    Atrocious. It is unconscionably so,

    that Repugs proceed so obstinately to go

    to such extremes

    to continue their memes

    which build on their themes

    while America screams.

    They create such an abominable woe.

    … Coda:

    Woes which’ll ultimately bite them back

    when America at long last will give them the sack.

    “WELL-REGULATED”{???} MILITIA – {rhyme and coda}

    “Well Regulated”??? …

    … well, Not an Alt-Right militia

    who’ll shoot whomever they wish, – a

    Bill-of-Rights “right”, mis-stated

    by fevered brains frustrated

    that the Rights are for those whom they’ve hated.

    … Coda:

    Let’s have them re-located

    to jails, and THERE “regulated”,

    from society segregated.

    REPRISE – {limerick and coda}

    Delightful, this sight that one sees: -

    - some Change in political seas.

    But one is not certain

    that closed is the curtain.

    One frets ‘bout a Rightwing reprise.

    … Coda:

    Wham, Bam. Thank you, Ma’am

    that for Now there’s less Moore in Alabam.

    REPARATIVE UPHEAVAL – {1.40 limericks and coda}

    It’ll take a systemic upheaval

    to quell our nation’s evil

    of greed unbelievable

    and hate inconceivable, -

    - and achieve some relief by retrieval

    of the American ways

    of more halcyon days.

    … Coda:

    EVERYthing Rightwing and Trumpish must go; -

    - otherwise woe will continue to flow.

    RISING GORGE – {rhyme}

    My gorge, how it rises

    as the media apprises

    of the ways of Trump.

    In my throat there’s a lump.

    My blood, how it’s steamingly boiled.

    The coils of my guts are roiled

    and my britches are soggy and soiled

    when I think how The Donald has yuugely foiled

    my nation’s values and left us turmoiled.

    BLACK HOLE – {rhyme and image}

    A Black Hole, the oval office: -

    - Societal norms disappear

    into Trump’s voracious orifice.

    The values which we revere

    are gone when he widens his jaw,

    are destroyed in his ravenous maw.

    WE INVEST IN FEATHERS FOR NESTS – {rhyme}

    We’re innocent folks who sometimes invest

    in politicians who’ll feather our nest.

    Too bad that you Others get so distressed; -

    - too bad that you Others get so dispossessed

    when of government service you get divested

    when us Plutocrats’ surf has surged and crested.

    The REPCONG is WRONG – {a rhyme and a But and a coda}

    re the RepCong’s kitchen: -

    - My, how it stinks

    from the hash made by Mitch ’n

    by Ryan, who thinks

    to further enrichen

    the Plutocrat finks.

    … BUT:

    But the RepCong is wrongfully wrong: -

    - the Head too would die before long, …

    … were the economy’s lower body

    to plod in conditions so shoddy.

    … Coda:

    The RepCong is Stupidly Further glitching

    a system already writhing and twitching.

    FERRETS – {rhyme}

    Mueller’s team of ferrets

    ferrets out The Donald’s demerits.

    This regime they seek to repair its

    pig-headed too-fast proceeding

    to ruin the nation, – to impair its

    abilities to keep on succeeding.

    CIVILITY’S CESSATION – {1.60 limericks}

    May Repugnantans not have impunity

    for their taking so much opportunity

    to be the causation

    of our nation’s mutation

    to a mess of abject disunity

    and flustered frustration

    and civility’s cessation

    and loss of our sense of community.
