The latest to fold was Jeb Bush

The latest to fold was Jeb Bush.
We have to say, “Jeb, what’s the rush?
            There’s plenty of time,
            So get back in the line.
Where Trump kicks you all in the tush.

There once was a Christian name Strong

There once was a Christian name Strong
Who lived as if Lent was yearlong
            Fridays he idd not eat
            Any chicken or meat
Unless the line at Red Lobster is long.

The candidate, Donald J. Trump

The candidate, Donald J. Trump
Riles us up while out on the stump.
            He has wide support
            From folks of all sort,
But bridge players say, “4 no trump”

While the swimsuits grow the SI purse,

While the swimsuits grow the SI purse,
Some feel it promotes the perverse.
            With  mature and plus-size
            Models in the franchise,
It’s now a standard of the diverse.

Von Miller just sat and was pensive.

Von Miller just sat and was pensive.
Thinking, “Why must I be so defensive.
            I think it may be
            Because they pay me,
And I have just become quite expensive.”

Congratulations to Von Miller, Super Bowl 50 Most Valuable Player

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.
