Humour to the rescue by all three of us
Donald Trump has certainly attracted more than his fair share of press and media coverage in recent days; to the extent that it’s almost impossible to find any sort of fresh slant on the man. It seems that it has been left to the glitterati of Hollywood to achieve the kind of satire that he deserves. If Alec Baldwin’s impersonation is a jewel, Melissa McCarthy’s turn as Sean Spicer is a sparkling diadem. Inspired by them, we wanted to find our own way to lampoon Trump and his administration and, after a somewhat boisterous meeting, we decided that we could best do this by turning to the limerick form in his honour.
Here are our efforts; we may add the odd one down the track, but in the meantime why don’t you join in? We’ll post yours, provided you stay within the boundaries. Attribution is, of course optional…
There once was a bigot called Trump
Whose young wife was far from a frump
Which led folk to say
Will she leave him or stay
With that small-handed, cruel-faced chump.
With redneck rhetoric and lopsided grin,
He distrusts Muslims and abortion’s a sin.
The wall no doubt,
Will keep the Mexicans out
And hopefully Trump’s people within.
There is a fat twatter called Trump,
Who’s starting to give me the hump,
With his comb over hair,
He’s a fucking nightmare,
I’m hoping he’ll go run and jump.
