    DISSING TRUMP and his TRUMPITES – {a pair of 1.20 limericks}

    If he’s not doing That then it’s This!! -

    - so Much about Trump is amiss

    that we boo and we hiss

    while we reminisce

    ’bout times of more bliss

    when we weren’t in a deepening abyss.

    and Trump’s supporters we diss, -

    - and wish that we could dismiss

    from Election Day’s polls

    where idiocy controls

    ‘cause Fox News extols

    the perp whose [censored] they kiss.

    THEIR ALBATROSS – {rhyme}

    The albatross Trump has become their necklace,

    although once he’d been their good omen.

    But The Donald has gotten raucously reckless

    as too much a Reality-Showman,

    carrying baggage from his egregious past

    which the whole doggoned world views quite aghast. -

    - So Republicans now are punily feckless,

    waiting for Mueller’s report

    while feigning their furtive support.

    TOWER OF BABEL – {limerick and coda}

    Our nation will never get stable

    if the Right continues to enable

    the constant protrusions

    of constant confusions

    from the Trumpian Tower of Babel.

    … Coda:

    They’re there in their sectors’ bubbles

    in which their mind-sets’ seclusions

    detract them from the FACT that we’ve troubles

    which’re caused by their hero’s delusions.

    NO MULLIGAN FOR TRUMP – {1.40 limericks}

    Trump’s incorrigibly a hooligan,

    so please don’t give him a [mulligan] mooligan.

    He’d do it ag’in,

    to our country’s chagrin. -

    - Please run him out;

    we can do without …

    … [Hmmm: what rhymes with “hooligan”

    but connotes “sociopath”?] Oh:

    … a prez who belongs in a loony-bin.

    {a near-enough rhyme-word}

    TRUMP’S #1 AMONG THE LADIES – {rhyme}

    Trump they include

    in their #MeToo list; -

    - he’s rude and he’s crude

    as misogynist.

    THE FAMILY BUSINESS – {limerick and coda}

    The Trump family seeks to conflate

    their business and our nation’s fate.

    But their business doin’s

    have our gummint in ruins

    ‘cause there’s dirt in their real estate.

    … Coda:

    My, how it irks

    that this bunch of jerks

    gets nepotism’s perks.

    MEMO TO MUELLER – {two limerick verses}

    Please give The Donald some breaks.

    So few and so small his mistakes.

    He’s just a sweet guy

    who wouldn’t harm a fly.

    You’re giving the poor guy the shakes.

    We are of course just kidding. -

    - To Trump we want to be bidding

    goodbye, adieu.

    He’s gone, he’s through.

    Good riddance to Trump, good ridding.

    … Coda:

    Give him not “breaks”,

    but “brakes”.

    FORKED TONGUE – {rhyme}

    The Donald speaks with forked tongue.

    Deceptive dissemblings he’s flung

    to shuck and jive all his life.

    But Mueller will counter with strife

    such as charges of felonious perjury. -

    - So Trump should have some Obamacare surgery

    to fix his tongue via surgeon’s knife

    so that maybe his fibs aren’t so dadgum’ rife.
