    Thanks, Mr Toles – {4 beats/line}

    Mornings and evenings and afternoons,

    we’ve gained by perusing Toles’s cartoons

    and we’ve laughed and we’ve learned thru insightful lampoons

    of politicians as risible goons

    {and of Trump, – who with Hitler and Nixon communes

    as the utmost quintessence of Looney Tunes}.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Even MORE to Lose – {4 beats/line}

    A great deal MORE our nation will lose

    if folks yet AGAIN get tricked by the ruse

    of a warped and malignant narcissist whose

    effect on our country is to give us the blues.

    Après-Trump – {1.40 limericks}

    I’ve a queasy feeling

    that my country won’t soon be healing: -

    - since après-Trump

    we’ll continue to flump

    and down the tubes we’ll be reeling,

    ‘cause his fans will remain

    as democracy’s bane.

    Problems Schmoblems – {4 beats/line}

    Many a problem the pols won’t fix,

    ‘cause plutocrats pay for pols’ politics

    with the expectation // that they’ll NOT serve the nation; … -

    … – that instead, they’ll use rhetorical tricks

    to downplay the hitches // in the schemes to gain riches.

    Even WORSE{!!} – {limerick}

    A second term would be Worse{!!}.

    His first was just to rehearse

    the crap he’d disperse

    in his second verse,

    and the boundaries he would transverse.
