Poetic Justice

Spade in the Shade

First came the wiretapping allegation by the president,
An accusation many said was without precedent.
But the paranoid GOP
Smells yet another conspiracy —
Barack Obama’s running his own shadow government.

Poetic Justice

What You Asked For

Obama didn’t like it when the GOP named it “Obamacare.”
Trump doesn’t like it now Dems call his “Trumpcare.”
But for all those covered by the ACA
Who voted for Trump that fateful day,
The GOP’s repeal and replace should be renamed “Chumpcare.”

Healthcare Bill Drill

The GOP Health Care Bill was received with great disdain.
Lefties say it cuts too much, conservatives say it’s lame.
For 50 votes, they couldn’t repeal it,
With all of Congress, they can’t replace it.
But one thing’s certain — ’tis Democrats who’ll get the blame.

From Slave to Immigrants

Ben Carson’s at it again, rewriting black history.
But was this a case of stupidity or sophistry?
He tried to inspire folks at HUD,
But his comments fell flat — with a thud.
And how he transformed slaves into immigrants remains a mystery.

How It Starts

Address the British Parliament Mr. Trump? No thanks.
Meanwhile France is moving from Left to Right banks.
But if you need a real clue
The world’s coming unglued,
Germany’s debating building up warplanes and tanks.

Charge of the Lightweight Brigade

Rand Paul just mounted an invasion
With media alerted to the occasion.
He charged ‘cross the Hill
To wrest free the Obamacare bill,
But ’twas gone — though Rand Paul was not chastened.

Good Nominee Advice

When testifying to Congress, make a good impression,
Answer honestly and fully any member’s questions.
Like when you’ve been meeting with Russian spies,
It’s probably inappropriate to tell lies,
Or you’ll wind up in a pickle, like Jeff Sessions.

A Conspicuous Absence

At CPAC they’re all speculatin’
That her political star is a-fadin’.
Formerly a major presence,
She’s a conspicuous absence —
So where in the heck is Sarah Palin?

The -Istist of the -Ists

We thought Donald Trump was a capitalist,
But now we’re told he’s a populist nationalist.
With Priebus his wing man,
And Bannon his string man,
Is it a surprise the terms rhyme with fascist.

Poetic Justice

Such a Chimera!

You probably will not believe us,
But at CPAC performed Bannon and Priebus.
One-half is alt-righter,
The other’s a liar,
And we prefer to call ’em Butthead and Beavis.
