Hardware v. Hard-Luck: Quick Limerick

`

As most of us rational folks, worldwide, have known (all along), Donald J. Trump opted to fabricate his BIG LIE rather than face up to the WHOLE TRUTH; namely, how he lost, BIG TIME, in the 2020 Presidential Election; due to his [1] failure to act (even remotely) presidential and (more to the point) [2] his flunking Pandemic Management 101.

FINAL VOTE TALLY

81,282,916 = Biden
74,223,369 = Trump

  • A sore loser’s hard-luck story can never explain all that had spawned Trump’s loss.
  • Metaphorically speaking, it’s loose hardware fasteners, that secured Biden’s victory

BTW, today’s (heavy on the hardware) limerick was inspired by the following astute observation…

“To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”

Abraham Maslow
`

About all I can add, other than the poetry, forthcoming, is that people who wield such hammers will be far more inclined to hit a finger nail (YEOUCH!) than to nail down the problem at hand…

`

A hardwired right wing, wingnut, with loose screw
Into the West Wing, dive bombed, bolted, blew
Recklessly let microbes’ strikes
Hammer down coffins’ nails / spikes
While gravesites’ daisies, all pushed up and grew

Be humans Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!

HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:

Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
Stay Healthy!

Alabaster Bastards: Quick Limerick

Subtitle: Black & White & Orange All-Over

`

The orange face paint; Kluxer Trump opts to plaster
Belies his bent; for robes / skin; alabaster
He loves to root for; validate
His cultists’ deep-rooted hate
and hellscape; where blacks serve; each white master

What Witch Hunts? (Quick Limerick)

`

Fed Agents ain’t Don Trump’s slaves; they’re his master
Ain’t on witch hunts (tho, he’s wicked spell caster)
They coddled; offered reprieve
IF he’d just let ‘em retrieve
Top Secret Docs; that could spell nuke disaster!

Wealth v. Health: Quick Limerick

`

Rabid capitalists; procure obscene wealth
Avid virologists; secure public health
When well-heeled asses; political
Trump unhealed masses; ill; critical
Microbes breed / mutate; in relative stealth

`

`

SIDEBAR: Tho the Biden Admin’s pandemic management skills readily trump the Trump Régime’s, alas, that’s traceable to the shockingly, low-set expectations bar. Joe has yet to totally “sell” the public on the fact that even vaccinated people can become carriers / super-spreaders of both Coronavirus Classic and its batcrap crazy communicable Variants.

Covid-19 will continue plaguing humanity UNTIL / UNLESS we do the bare minimum… BARE MINIMUM; namely, mask up in all indoor, public settings.

What makes Biden’s ‘tude even more astounding is how (not unlike Trump), the coronavirus infected him (in Joe’s case twice); mostly because (not unlike Trump), he goes publicly maskless.

Uh… to do WHAT?
Project a badass image???
Does anyone, actually, fall for such rubbish???

Of course, Biden is all too aware that he IS the face of the Democratic Party. Ergo, he dares not cover that face with a pandemic mask (especially in the heat of a midterm election year). To do so, would invite an endless barrage of stupid, certifiable, merciless, hardcore, right wing media taunting / bullying.

`

Now, at the risk of repeating myself… my regular blog coda, anyway…

“I was told…” Quick Limerick

`

Preface: When we become ear and eyewitnesses to aired and streamed interviews, particularly of the political nature; especially in our troubled times; all too frequently the guests who appear speak in the passive voice; lean far to heavily on that “I was told…” telltale, damning phrase. Far worse, are these programs’ talking heads / moderators, who fail to lean back on their guests by countering with the vital question, “Who told you?”

`

To frankness, fascists feel no obligation
They favor “I was told…” type obfuscation
Such telltale passive voice grammar
To truth and facts acts as hammer
Oft leading to liberty’s obliteration

Taxing Syntax: Quick Limerick

`

Preface: My gratitude to KD, who WordPress posts praiseworthy prose and poetry; who now prompts the following post; my poetic op-ed dedicated to all brain dead, pointless politicians; oppressors (all) / opposers (all) to all progress…

`

How ironic, politicians, verbose
Sure shovel syntax, yet, rarely come close
Their verbs spur NO action
Since hot air gains NO traction
Voters’ riposte: ballot box adios

Twenty-Four Skiddoo? Quick Limerick

`

PREFACE: It’s so tragic that a verse about President Joe Biden’s reversal of political fortune is even needed, BUT, he did do this to himself. To fill in the particulars, check out both the poetry and prose that follow…

`

Pale Blue Biden is too meek; too mellow
Fights for Human Rights? NOPE! Not that fellow!
He’d rather pamper right wingers
Who whip him, middle fingers
MAGA Red OrangeMan soon defeats Joe Yellow?

`

Biden’s tanked out approval rating is linked to his impossible quest for bipartisanship with Trumper Republicans. In the process, he’s been sacrificing every iota of his dignity / every vestige of human decency, and, worse yet, screwing over the very voters who empowered him.

Pollsters are already predicting that, come November, Democrats will lose control of both the U.S. House and Senate and, come 2024, will also lose the White House. Worse yet, Biden’s likely successor will be the still unpunished perpetrator of the January 6th Insurrection, the Fascist / narcissist Donald J. Trump who, once installed will NEVER leave office. Alas, Dictatorship will trump Democracy.

Biden could still win back the voters by signing Executive Orders that’d both keep his campaign promises and, even better, not require any Congressional approval.

But, will he?

Elision

Each head up rump Trumper, lays down F’d up law
That stinks up Creation and sticks in our craw

Spelled out that’s F’law F’law F’law; F’law F’law F’law F’law

Straight poop; that’s F’law F’law F’law; F’law F’law F’law F’law
