    There was once a man named Fantastic

    I once had a favorite web site,
    It offered political insights,
    But woe was the day
    Friend Jaybird did say

    The press thinks that Trump’s lost the thread
    And that chaos is running ahead,
    So they talk to themselves
    About narratives he should shelve,
    While Trump tweets to his followers instead.Report

    The Left cries from months of dejection
    And wand’ring without introspection
    Trump’s tweets do distract
    Makes them ignore the fact
    That Bern would have won the electionReport

      The DNC’s eye was a glintin’
      When they nominated that dues payer Clinton
      “It was her turn!”
      Then along came the Bern
      And we ended up with Trump.Report

    Mr. Donald J. Trump
    The policies of Obama did dump.

    its because he out chasing kittens.

    I give you, the Clerihew

    A clerihew (pronunciation: /?kl?r?hju?/) is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. The first line is the name of the poem’s subject, usually a famous person put in an absurd light, or revealing something unknown and/or spurious about them. The rhyme scheme is AABB, and the rhymes are often forced. The line length and metre are irregular. Bentley invented the clerihew in school and then popularized it in books. One of his best known is this (1905):

    Sir Christopher Wren
    Said, “I am going to dine with some men.
    If anyone calls
    Say I am designing St. Paul’s.”Report

    A scandal can be driven by the loonyes
    Hopped up on the stinck of impugn-ness
    But the tip of the crapper
    Or so says Jake Tapper
    Is when a Chairmen acts like a bufoonyes.

    No! “like David Nunes”. Sorry!Report

    There once were some Ord’nary Gents
    who were ’fraid that their name gave offense
    so they pled to their crimes
    and they got with the Times,
    Now their URL doesn’t make sense!Report

    At Pepsi’s worst move of the year
    We all shared a good “ha”
