A Limerick For Democracy

 

 

The Founders didn’t want one group to rule the public,

So that is why these solons created a republic.

“Democracy” was not a welcomed word,

Maybe as welcomed as a punch bowl turd,

Because they knew that democracies don’t long stick.

 

 

 

 

Swan Songs

 

 

The pros told us that by the year Two-Thousand

There would be extensive world-wide starvation.

These wise guys were wrong,

And now their swan song?

Human activity is melting glaciation.

 

 

 

 

A Big Lie From The New York Times

 

 

The Trump-Russian connection is a “BS” story,

And FBI chief James Comey privately agrees.

This is from Trump’s chief of staff,

But it truly makes me laugh,

When Comey refuses to speak about it publicly.

 

 

 

 

A Bloody Religion

 

 

Sebastian Gorka is giving leftists a fit.

He’s thoroughly studied Islamic holy writ.

Liberals cannot stay calm

When he says about Islam:

That violence is an integral part of it.
