Not So Funny

Trump’s budget, by human compassion, is unencumbered.
As usual, for the poor and working class, it’s a bummer.
And that ballooning deficit?
Our grandkids will pay for it,
Though Mick Mulvaney says he could have balanced it using “funny numbers.”

Fake Nunes News

For a recused guy, he doesn’t act very recused,
Though by his antics on the Hill, we’re still amused.
But he’s tackled the negativity
With some newfound creativity,
Creating a Facebook page with only positive Devin Nunes news.

Oaf Under Oath

We think a Trump interview with Mueller would be a fine thing.
Donald said he’d do it because there’s nothing he’s hiding.
But his lawyers hollered, “No!”
‘Cause there’s one thing that they know:
Trump can’t possibly talk for an hour without lying.

Alone with The Memo

Trump released The Memo at the behest of The Hannity,
But that numbnuts Nunes has created a bit of a mystery.
We know Trump received it,
But did he indeed read it?
All we know is he was left alone for hours with a copy.

A Lunatic’s Spasm

Most see Trump’s “bigger button” tweet as impolitic,
And most admit it’s a poor example of realpolitik.
But leave it to the North Koreans
Who’ve practiced insult art for eons,
To characterize Trump’s tweet as the “spasm of a lunatic.”

Bannon Wasn’t Worth It

Steve Bannon’s disposition is not what we’d call sunny,
Though some of his one-liners were pretty funny.
But his Breitbart worth began to pale,
When measured upon a scale
Against big bags of Mrs. Rebekah Mercer’s money.

One Loose Bannon

The Trumpian White House loyalty code, well, Bannon broke it.
If we thought Trump was already mad, well, Bannon stoked it.
Now Trump’s lawyers want him to desist and cease
Exercising his right to free speech.
It’s clear to us Bannon didn’t lose his mind — he just spoke it.

Divine Sense of Humor?

Minnesotan Michele Bachmann is weighing a U.S. Senate Run,
Which would inject our sorry politics with some whack-job fun.
But before facing the nation,
She seeks divine confirmation.
And we’re fervently hoping God tells her she’s His Chosen One.

Less Moore In ’18

It felt very good to show 2017 the door,
Though maintaining optimism remains a chore.
But trepidatiously looking ahead,
One certainty can be said —
At least we don’t have to listen to Roy Moore no more.

Brutal, Venal Rascals

They did it today with no small element of venality,
Though they did it with more intent than mere rascality.
They wrested the web
Away from us plebs,
And turned us all into victims of net brutality.
