LIMERICKS TO "THE DONALD"

The Donald
    It's fun to write limericks about interesting characters. Donald Trump is a limerick writer's dream. I am hereby inviting anyone who enjoys this light verse form to share your talents with our Minding What Matters viewers by contributing to my anthology of limericks devoted to The Donald. Please post them as comments to this article or on my Facebook page.
    Here's one to prime your poetic pump:

There’s a boastful campaigner named Trump,
who is doing quite well on the stump.
All his insults and gaffs
only get him more laughs.
Will he wind up a champ or a chump?

  1. Richard, are you still looking for Trump limericks? If so, here are some of mine that you can use, but please let me know if any are published for my records. -- Michael R. Burch

    Things that go bump in the night
    fill Trump with irrational fright;
    his brain hits the skids;
    he cries, "Ban the kids!"
    Where's his self-lauded "courage" and "might"?
    — Michael R. Burch

    There once was a brash billionaire
    who couldn't afford decent hair.
    Vexed voters agreed,
    "He's the one that we need!"
    But toupée the price, do we dare?
    — Michael R. Burch

    There once was a candidate, Trump,
    whose message rang clear at the stump:
    "Vote for me, whee!,
    because I am ME,
    and everyone else is a chump!"
    — Michael R. Burch

    Trump the Game Plan

    There once was a huckster named Trump
    who liked to be kissed on the rump.
    He promised awed voters
    if they'd be his promoters,
    he'd magically fix up their dump.

    Now the voters were dreaming of Ronald
    and hoping they'd found him in Donald.
    And so, lightly "thinking"
    after much heavy drinking,
    they put out, as if they'd been fondled.

    But once he'd secured the election
    Trump found his fans cause for dejection.
    "I only love tens!"
    he complained to his "friends,"
    then deported them: black, white and Mexican.

    Thus Donald fulfilled his sworn duties
    by ridding the land of non-cuties.
    Once the plain Janes were gone
    he could smile on his throne
    surrounded by imported beauties!
    — Michael R. Burch

  2. The once was a man named Trump
    Who had hair like a yellow bump
    "I'll build a great wall
    They'll pay for it all
    I hope they don't learn how to jump"

  4. There once was an old man named Trump
    The ladies he loved to hump
    For President he did run
    But he'd had too much fun
    That evil devil named Trump.

  5. The Donald is truly ill-bred
    For when meeting a lass, it is said
    As manners demand
    She offered her hand
    But he shook her "pussy" instead
