    “Reality” gets Trumped – {1.40 limericks}

    His “reals” aren’t actually factual; -

    - “fantasies” are more satisfactual.

    He prefers fabrications // and the facts’ mutations, …

    … to get ovations // during orations

    which declaim stuff not factually actual.

    Ostriches ‘Druther Not See – {limerick}

    Trumpites hide their eyes

    as the numbers of victims rise,

    and fantasize

    what logic denies: -

    - that the nation will stabilize.

    … Coda: – {3 beats/line}

    The Trumpites seek to inspire us: -

    - “Ignore the dadgum’ virus

    and go out to buy and to work.

    Then up the economy will perk,

    and again we’ll vote for Trump

    ‘cause he’s pulled us out of the slump.”

    May Mother Nature do SOMEthing – {4 beats/line}

    Will Mother Nature somehow please waive

    the disasters, and make the climate behave?

    Will she cause the Covid to shrink and to shrivel

    so’s not to be so dadgum’ uncivil? …

    … {We hope she will, because:}

    The Right won’t let Science our arses save; -

    - so Gummint just whines with a feckless snivel.

    Reprieve – {limerick}

    America won’t much grieve

    when th’ POTUS takes his leave

    {taking too

    his retinue}.

    We’ll welcome such a reprieve.

    A Yuuge Distance – {limerick}

    On a scale of zero to ten,

    The Donald just dudn’t fit in; -

    - than zero he’s less*.

    [ As prez he’s a mess

    much more than the others have been. ]

    … Footnote:

    With a value off less than zero,

    Trump isn’t much of a hero:

    He’s a perp who negates

    our nation’s good traits, -

    - and leaves us in bigly dire straits.

    Curbing the Vote – {4 beats/line}

    Again he’s gone postal {and quite off the rails}, -

    - this time that voters must not use the mails

    to force The Donald to furl his sails

    because at presiding The Donald fails.

    … Coda:

    [{ Rights in voting his party curtails

    in many a way as it falters and flails. }]

    Trump Sets a Bad Example – {4 beats/line}

    Maintain “social distance”: – Keep six feet apart,

    with no coughing, no wheezing, not even a fart.

    And wear a mask which is state of the art.-

    - These are some rules which Trump dudn’t heed

    ‘cause the Covid’s virulence he dudn’t concede.

    Thus doth The Donald quite bigly mislead.

    … Coda: – {2 beats/phrase}

    Trump is a lout // we can do without:

    He uses his clout // common sense to flout.

    Boycott the CDC – {limerick}

    The Donald is quite insistent

    that expertise stay distant

    from his own bailiwick’s

    political tricks.

    Of Hitler he’s quite reminiscent.
