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?

Evaluation of Vlad (Quick Limerick)

Mental illness can be so subliminal
Heads of State shun Headshrinkers’ regiminal

Drives him to ravage Ukraine
Join the ranks of rank, savage War Criminal
