bloomberg-trump

They’re saying that Bloomberg is lacking
In stature, his shortness attacking.
But better short man
Than shortness of plan
For that, we should all send him packing.

The maiden by Count Dracula was bitten
And though lacking much blood she was smitten.
She thought, “What the heck!”
And offered her neck.
Her autobiography’s ghost-written.

Political! Impeach him, they’re saying
Including four senators staying
To vote to remove
The one they reprove,
Against whom they’re running and naying.

Hypocrisy much? More than a mere touch.
For Dems, though, their politics is such.
For three years they plotted,
By their hate besotted.
Their anger at losing remains much.

antifa


The Brown Shirts, the Klu Klux – both losers,
And so is Antifa, the bruisers.
They’re wearing a hood;
They’re up to no good.
The Left is for those thugs excusers.

washington delaware

Of vaccinate, Washington said, “No!”
Emphatic he was. “Out you go
If as soldiers you do,
Then as soldiers you’re through!”
But he changed his mind, ending woe.

————————————————————-

Vaccination was primitive in Washington’s time. Pus from
a smallpox victim was put into a wound to inoculate
another, giving them (for the most part) a slight case of
smallpox and immunity, though a few even died.  When
Washington changed his mind and had his army inoculated,
the death rate in his army associated with smallpox went
from 160 out of 1000 to 3 of 1000.

falling

A bump on the head caused confusion,
An inner and outer contusion.
The outer was minor,
Not more than a shiner.
The inner brought life to conclusion.

———————————————–

We worry about broken bones from falls and the bruises we can
see, but it is what we cannot see that may prove to be the worst.

yankee clipper

Ho! Mate! If you’re needing a shipper
From hither to yon like a zipper,
Look no further than me,
Nor hither to see.
I’m captain of yon Yankee clipper.

Lincoln inaugural

It looked dim for Lincoln’s election
To second term till changed complexion.
Sheridan o’er Early won;
Atlanta burned till it was done.
The army assured Abe’s selection.

Some Britons have lost all their senses

In saying that lads may have menses.
For the sake of the sane
And those with a brain,
Keep fools far away with good fences.

The headline drips blood and is gory;
Alarmingly tells of lost glory.
Read deeper, you’ll find
‘Twas merely a line.
The title ne’er matches the story.
