    DEAL MAKER-nay-BREAKER – {rhyme}

    Trump’s not so hot at deal-MAKING; -

    - he’s a master instead of deal-BREAKING

    in ways so erratic

    and undiplomatic

    that the world to oblivion he’s taking. …

    … And he makes so much static

    with noise autocratic

    that his fans don’t realize he’s raking

    them TOO to the hot-burning coals

    in his bonfire on the world’s rocky shoals.

    TRUMPACITY – {rhyme}

    Our prez has low capacity

    for savvy about our nation,

    and severely he lacks sagacity;

    he’s a mutant regarding mentation. -

    - But his scores are high in pugnacity,

    audacity, mendacity, – and tenacity

    in self-serving greedy voracity.

    THEY NEED ADMONISHING – {rhyme}

    It is astonishing!!

    So many applaud in support

    of whatever the Rightists purport!!

    They need admonishing: -

    - Wisdom doesn’t comport

    with notions which fall so short

    of facing problems sanely,

    by serving the Plutocrats mainly.

    MONSTROUS IDS – {limerick}

    Empowered and therefore salacious,

    these big shots aren’t merely flirtatious -

    - but vastly audacious

    and vilely rapacious.

    With monstrous ids they’re predacious.

    OPPOSABLE THUMB – {rhyme}

    There’s only one clue

    that Trump’s sorta smart:

    He has an opposable thumb.

    Evolution comes thru; -

    - we can tell Trump apart

    from creatures who’re even More dumb.

    EMPEROR WITHOUT CLOTHES – {1.20 limericks & image}

    A fit the Emperor throws,

    as Senator Corker knows, -

    - when you point out

    he’s a childish lout

    in diapers without

    what Emperors wear as cloes.

    MOTHER EARTH DISHEVELED – {limerick}

    At Earth their guns were leveled.

    She lay there depleted, disheveled.

    The malefactors

    were carbon extractors

    enriched by an Earth thus bedeviled.

    BATS IN HIS ATTIC – {limerick}

    There once was a Prez so erratic

    that we thought he had bats in his attic,

    piling guano so thickly

    that it made us quite sickly.

    His White House was quite problematic.

    HOSTAGES – {limerick}

    In hostage Trump has them held

    ’til concessions he has compelled

    for a Dreamers deal

    with Alt-Right appeal.

    Audacity unparallelled.

    BREACHES OF PROPRIETIES – {limerick & coda}

    It’s quite bizarre, quite a reach,

    to say Rooskie rubles are “speech”.

    So grant no immunity

    and grant no impunity.

    Proprieties of Sovereignty they breach.

    … Coda:

    Bad enough is the stuff

    of the First Amendment guff

    that American DOLLARS are “speech”.

    Proprieties of Democracy they breach.
