My Button’s Bigger

by Rhyme In Time

The doughboy has a button that will send his missile up.
He gleams with pride just like a child who dandles brand new pup.

Let’s Send In Dennis Rodman

by Rhyme In Time

Decided to post this one now because of this news item:  http://www.newsweek.com/north-korea-us-relations-dennis-rodman-741679

🙂

He’s buddies with the little god-man—
Let’s send back in Dennis Rodman.
It well could be the Magic Worm
Can charm the crazy Chia Perm.
There certainly are notions far more odd, man.

An “The Anti-Santa Is Making A List”Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I never imagined that The President Of The United States would be a bully. The position of Leader of the Free World demands being a calm and composed Voice Of Reason. That is not what we have been hearing. The not-alternative-fact is that what we’ve been hearing is quite the opposite…And it led to this

A Couple of “I’m Hopeful and Doubtful At The Same Time” Limericks

by Joel Kravitz

It is reality. Donald Trump is The President of the United States. A truly remarkable accomplishment from a truly remarkable man. He did whatever he had to do. He embraced the fringe. He clearly represents change to a disillusioned constituency who responded to his cult of personality without needing to see a plan…or his tax returns. He was willing to bear his soul or lack thereof, depending on whether you are for or against him.

We have to give President Trump a chance to make changes and then we will see if the changes make America a stronger nation, where every citizen’s life is better and the greatest good is enjoyed by the greatest number of Americans.

A Few “Post-Inauguration” Limericks

by Joel Kravitz

It started yesterday and the world is watching. What we have is a President Elect whose past is, sadly, not a great unknown leading the United States on a path that at this time is a great unknown. No one can dispute that for Baby Boomers, we are going to have a Leader of the Free World like none we have had in our lifetimes.

A “Golden (Shower) Opportunity For A Pundit”Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I have been delirious with joy about my Clemson Tigers winning the National Championship. I thought I might be able to savor it a little longer BUT President Elect Trump has thrust me back into the pundit fray once again. Fortunately for joke writers and unfortunately for The United States, Donald Trump is a laugh a minute when he isn’t scaring the shit out of the country and the world.

A “Flip Flopping Presidential Mindset” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

A recurring theme both pre and post election has been Trump’s flip flopping on issues. I’m sure there are many people hoping that there will be a lot of that going on as he took some extreme stances to build enough of a constituency who voted for him. This constituency was built with a platform of lies and fear, the only rhetoric that could motivate a large disgruntled portion of the American people to vote for him. It wasn’t enough to elect him. He needed the large number of people who voted against Hillary Clinton. Those are the people praying for more flip flopping and his constituency is expecting him to make good on everything. The fact is that he is a flip flopper.

I was reading this article which may or not be fake news, as if I could tell the difference.

A “Trump Effect Economy” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Things like Hope and Change drive markets. This election has left everyone hoping in one way or another and bracing for the change that lies ahead, especially because that change is in the hands of someone who is not a career politician, has chutzpah out the ying yang and charisma that is undeniable.

An “It’s Rigged If I Lose and I Won’t Accept The Results And Now That I Won, It Was Still Rigged and I Won’t Accept The Results” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

It’s no holds barred when Trump competes.
He tells lies which he repeats.
Who could have expected
He’d get elected….
And be the first President who Tweets!

An “Appointments Point To An ‘Organized’ Administration” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I am an optimist by nature. I always try to see the good in things and a way to turn problems into opportunities. One of my catch phrases is “No mess is as bad as it looks.” I’m beginning to wonder.

A President Elect Appointment Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I’m no different than everyone else. I have my own personal opinions about what just happened and what is going to happen. I do know this. Someone has to be very intelligent and charismatic to be able to be elected President Of The United States. Despite his hateful rhetoric and playing on fear and anger to build his constituency, which is personally offensive to me in so many ways, he rallied enough people to vote for him. He may have defeated the only person that he could have. I am guessing that a good many of the people who voted for him actually voted against Hillary Clinton.

A Post Election Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

And so the people have spoken.
“Fix it. We think it’s broken.”
Now what will Trump do?
Let’s hope he has a clue….
And his promises made weren’t just token.
