The big blizzard caused D. C. to close

The big blizzard caused D. C. to close
So the wheels of government froze.
            But without concession
            Female pols were in session,
Braving snow while in fashionable clothes.

There is a GOPer named Sarah.

There is a GOPer named Sarah
When the discourse gets heated, she’s therah.
            Now, she’s on the stump
            In support of the Trump,
Which answers the Democrat’s prayerah.

A Powerball player named Riddit

A Powerball player named Riddit
Discovered that he indeed “hit it”
            And fell flat on his back
            Dead of a heart attack
Without telling us where he had hid it.

There once was a father named Donne

There once was a father named Donne
Who, once a year, picked up his son
            To take for a ride,
            Full of fatherly pride,
To get his income taxes done.

As we ponder on 12/31

As we ponder on 12/31
Fretting about the things left undone,
            It should be understood
            That all “New Years” are good
When planning a course on 1/1.

A U. S. born woman named Bonnie

A U. S. born woman named Bonnie
Had dark features like the Romani.
            At the GOP debate
            A lamb gyro she ate
Which got her labeled an Irani.

Innocents have been murdered again

Innocents have been murdered again
With a strike from a viperous den.
            But the City of Lights
            Will live on through these nighrs.
Nous sommes Parisiennes!

Hey Starbucks! Listen! Get adviced!

Hey Starbucks!  Listen!  Get adviced!
We don’t care if your cups’ overpriced.
            But for Jesus’ sake,
            Bring back the snowflake!
(Which has no real connection to Christ.)

The GOP is in distress

The GOP is in distress
Over “gotcha” questions from the press.
            If they can’t stand the heat
            From the flames at their feet,
Can they deal with Putin and the res’?

There once was a fellow named Petty

There once was a fellow named Petty
Who said that it seemed such a pity     
            That folks of all hue
            Who only watched TV news
Can be molded like just so much putty.

There once was a man named Colbert

There once was a man named Colbert;
Pretending to be full of hot ert.
            When he placed his true self
            On the CBS shelf
He showed there was nothing in thert.

The Supermoon has come and went;

The Supermoon has come and went;
Another fear-causing event.
            I did see a moon,
            That did make me swoon.
Just not the one everyone meant.

An argument against race mixing

I said it to everyone’s faces,
I don’t believe in mixing races.
            Sprinters should run real fast;
            Marathoners to last.
All you athletes should keep to your places.

What happened to Tom Brady’s phone?

What happened to Tom Brady’s phone?
Is it lost?  Did it break?  Was it thrown?
     His last call?  From Gisele,
    Who was giving him hell
For deflation when they’re alone.

There once was an actor named Ian

There once was an actor named Ian
Whose 90210-ness was dyin’.
            So he teamed up with Tera
            In a SyFy scara.
Now the Sharknado franchise is flyin’.

Watch for Sharknado 3:  Oh, Hell No! to be shown repeatedly on the SyFy network.  It will make you feel better about some of the choices you have made in the past.
