Limerick 071718

There was something afoul in Helsinki

Trump’s strings being pulled by Putin – quite stinky

Donnie’s Vlad’s puppet for sure

And maybe even his whore

Putting a black mark on sex workers’ integrity





There’s a reason

Those who can’t see on

The face of it

All the obvious bullshit

Yet he wants to split

With allies now foes

Who knows where this goes

We are in the throes now

Of a president who kowtows

To his puppet master

Whom our agencies identified faster

As meddling in our sovereignty

But the purported man of pee pee

Has no actual dignity

Or ability to lead

We all should take heed

Lest our nation’s bleeding be

The last drops of democracy

This Important Portmanteau

Juneteenth, today

A portmanteau

Two plus years delayed

For those needing to know

The Emancipation Proclamation

Was signed January 1, 1863

Yet there were still

Slaves in our nation

In Galveston on June 19, 1865

When they found out they now

Had new possibilities to thrive

There were many obfuscators then

There are many present here and now again

Hiding the truth to keep false power

Is the present the time that’ll end their hour

Those who treasure humans being

Must fervently protest what they’re seeing

Only unity can resist this scourge

Help our society disengorge

Then support the rising of those of us

Toward whom a powerful few show disgust

We are but one humanity

So must come together to avoid further calamity.

Busy Humans Doing What?

I’m busy being human,

As a human being.

Can’t be bothered by this mess,

This ugliness I’m seeing.

Why can’t it all go away?

It might if I close my eyes.

If we each don’t pay attention,

Then what are our alibis?

Human dignity, in fact humanity

Is surely what’s at stake

How long must we all endure

Before our society surely breaks

Almost all of my words shared here are unplanned, meaning not worked on for other then the morning I start writing. Obviously these thought percolate in me and come to the surface, though they often surprise me. Not so much in the sentiments but rather in the combination of words, phrases and rhymes. Thanks for reading.

Who Paid?

Of Trump, Rudy said he reimbursed Cohen

While Trump, has denied even knowin’

Of that $130,000 hush money

For an affair with other than his Melania honey

This story just keeps the law-breaking fire a-going.




No one could make these stories up.

A mad megalomaniac

Makes many mano a mano


Mashing much malice

And mustering military might,

Our brave women and men


Moving many minds away from

Motivating the masses,

Not old,

Mostly white men

But multitudes of maligned

Minions, as the maniac might mention

Must we, the women and men

Of this magical, many-colored,

Multi-racial mashup of millions

Manage marginalization and manipulation

And March toward MLK, Jr’s

Motivational mannerisms
