When White House removal is complete
The van should come to Downing Street
To take the man who shows no shame
And ministers that play the game
They talk of avoiding defeat
And maybe do a deal that's sweet

Naughty Ham

The Church of Four Hundred Rabbits*
Needs Vows of Silence from blab-its
The Altar wine
Is so divine
That monks and priests probe loose habits

*Prior to Lockdown, Nottingham's
400 Rabbits Tequila Bar

I was just behind a sexpot
In a queue that stood to be shot
It takes skill to wheedle
When facing a needle
As long as whatever you've got!

	eat the mild instead
Next time I’ll order a tostada

The Rapture

(though the word’s absent from scripture)
	to protect her head
	if in a bus, she said
began wearing a hard-hat as proof 
in case she had to go through the roof.

Donald Trump can not stay the course
As too many want a divorce
The House votes, "No More!"
The Senate yells, "Fore"!
But, of course, Trump has no remorse!

Was quite a gullible sucker
To mix rum with lime
I said would taste fine
He’s now just a drunken old pucker

Fritz had always dreamed of owning some land
After the army, he'd buy some, as planned
  But Fritz served near Iran
  And green grass there was banned
Fool bought a golf course ~ but only the sand

Nancy said, “You got to try it”
Fred began to “Feel the Noize”
Tooting like the Beastie Boys
Really it was Quiet Riot

Melania was placed on top shelf
Though Trump is a cad
He felt really bad
And gave her a Valentine elf

Democracy II

Although welcome under any dome,
It's something that ought to bang at home.
Yet, unlike charity
There's no parity
With old - that all roads should lead to Rome!

Limericks have been here for some 500 years
With a view of giving good cheers
From great inspiration
To expelled narration 
Mine was written after a few beers

Donald Trump - bankrupt with no sense -
Now blames everything on Pence
Trump looted our vault
But its not his fault
That everyone else is so dense!

There once was a king who told lies, 
like a moth chasing gaslight they rise, 
ever drawn to the flame, 
unaffected by shame, 
true democracy labors and sighs.

It was somewhere between Spain and Tonga
People there only lived to dance
Until they all fell into a trance
Because they had forgotten how to conga

With his chest out being bold
He took the Covid shot
His body ran hot
Suddenly his face, turned old

A blood-thirsty God wants your son
And you fear God's will must be done?

Now make a deal!
Remember God wants to have fun!

Slow Menu

French cuisine for some see it crude.
Eating snails appear horribly lewd,
but well known in France,
its folk took a stance,
as the French cannot stand fast food.

Capitol Crimes

Proud boys were observed breaking glass
Confirming that Trump has no class 
As seen on TV
Like the GOP
Trump just doesn't give a rat sass!

The Ill of Capitol Hill

If you think what happened was too bad,
Imagine, had he been elected...
Oh four more years of him
On American dream!
Think, world's a small price paid, and be glad.

Donald Trump was counting his toes
(Which never once smelled like a rose)
The Devil appeared
And just as he feared
Nothing grew as fast as Trump's nose!

Grandma walked outside with her new knee
She slipped, her dentures flew into a tree
Her teeth are now gone
what else could go wrong
As her dentures fell, breaking into three

You will find structure is overrated
Producing humdrum routine most hated
Better to seek fun and love
And spirit rising above
Don’t let those local mores keep you weighted

"Judge I just don't get it pleaded Pete,
Owner of Heavenly Escorts Elite,
  Given the economy's plight
  And with no relief in sight,
We’re just trying to make ends meet"

Furniture Dealer

There was a furniture dealer named Maurice
Who acquired items for the Nouveau Riche.
  Most popular by far,
  The back seat of a car
Which they use for an occasional piece.

Trump's affair with the Ku Klux Klan
But tell Trump supporters
And all his cavorters
What they need is a moving van!

Warning - Strong Pickle Content

There was once a King named Pickles
Flustered, he never got tickled
He blamed genetics
It was pathetic
His pickle was small and fickle

The Pickle Tickle

Picking a pack of pickled pickles
The produce isle can be quite fickle
We’re just having fun
So don’t come undone
Head on home and give it a tickle

There once lived a lad who was very fickle
His notion of devotion was wrought in nickel
Our high born lad
Was such a cad
He always found himself in a pickle
