Mr. Manafort Finally Flips A dollop of droll doggerel disguised as a sonnet


A loss of fealty, the perpetrator pleads guilty and admits
millions in Ukrainian money acrobatics in bleeps and blips
a foreign agents political tale told in news and TV clips
a puerile smiling 45 under combed over dyed hair flips
daily tweeting stormy surrealistic solipsistic shivering fits.
Manafort pleads guilty as another trial hangs on his hips
now all the dirty dealing secrets will pour from his lips
as Mueller attack dog prosecutors take painful nips.
When 45 passes Paul Manafort will be noted in his obits
with Paul’s Trump Tower observations and serious quips.
Meanwhile a political hurricane across Wash. D.C. rips
thanks to Manafort’s truth tongue slips and tell all tips
his egregious law breaking awakens Congressional whips.
This campaign chair’s actions effected US voting trips.

If It Walks Like A Duck
“A lot of bad things happen in lame duck sessions.”
—U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
If it walks like a duck, sounds like & talks like a duck
its probably Donald, the rich yellow hair dyed duck
If it tweets twaddle and twit and talks plenty of BS
you can bet your tax return it is probably full of it
How gullible are the governed, what will they believe
are they gullible enough to believe a gull is a duck
both have beaks, quack, squawk, screech, and tweak
under the guise of insulting talk when they speak
there are daffy sitting ducks, dead and lame ducks
ducks on a pond, Beijing eating soybeans ducks
medieval torture of ducks in a ducking pond
ugly duckling turned to swan with a magic wand
there are those who every honest question ducks
those who bring overflow to a nation’s tear ducts.
