Poetic Justice

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,
It’s no wonder the term rhymes 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.

Poetic Justice

A Border War

We knew Trump would be tough on immigration,
But lately there’s been an alarming escalation.
“We’re getting gang members out,
“We’re getting drug lords out,”
In what he refers to as a “military operation.”

Let It Shine

Trump’s media attacks are characterized by harshness,
And his “enemy” meme is starting to stick to the press.
But the media mainstream
Now has it’s own meme —
WaPo’s new tagline: “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

Poetic Justice

Animal? Mineral? Vegetable?

It was nominated to be Secretary of Labor,
But it had been accused of being an abuser.
But even after it withdrew,
We still wished we knew
What, for heaven’s sake, is a PUZDER?

Poetic Justice

No Zest to Investigate

As the White House devolves into chaos and confusion,
And Team Trump responds with rebukes and accusations,
Why hasn’t the Congress
Moved to address the mess?
And where is the Republicans’ old zeal for investigations?

Flynn’s Veep Sin

When you call up the Rooskies to negotiate sanctions,
You can be pretty sure several spooks are a-listenin’.
But when Mike Flynn briefed Mike Pence,
He lied to him, and hence
Lost his job over the euphemism, “incomplete information.”
