Grate… Not Great (One Quick Limerick #019)

 

 

Grump bullies non-WASPs / non-straights, spews his hate,

Deems rule of law / liberty second-rate,

In big biz world, he’s a glutton,

He’ll melt down, push “The Button”,

That irritant makes america grate.

Fire & Fury (One Quick Limerick #018)

 

The man-child’s foreign relations routine,

Vows fire/fury world has never seen,

Sane folks can’t sleep at night,

With Earth’s end now in sight,

Guess it’s in Heaven where we’ll reconvene?

Rattle + Prattle = Battle (One Quick Limerick #017)

 

The fools’ nuclear sabers both rattle,

And they spew forth too much mucked up prattle,

With diarrhea of mouth,

Hopes for truce talks could go south,

They’d end up with a mushrooming battle!

99 Word Blog #003 The Dense Red GOP Fog

Be you a liberal in need of validation or a Trump addict in need of an intervention, composer Casey J. Chapman’s video… her updated version of Woody Guthrie’s classic, This Land Is Your Land, should bring peace of mind.

She cuts through the dense, red fog, which had occluded Cleveland, Ohio (The 2016 Republican National Convention’s ground zero)… douses their inflammatory rubble… deodorizes their pervasive archconservative stench… trumps Donald Trump’s acceptance speech… bristling with his fear mongering, saber rattling and delusional appraisal of America.

With Trump’s speech, now committed to the history books, he, too, needs to be committed.

 

09/21/2016 ADDENDUM: Regrettably, Casey J. Chapman’s YouTube video is no longer available. I do hope that this was not due to rightwing backlash / censorship.

I now present these covers of This Land Is Your Land to fill the musical void.
