Villano’s Mom

Villano’s Mom

 

 

Trump just insulted Steve Villano’s mother.
The Donald is in loads of trouble now.
He isn’t dealing with some helpless other.
Villano is the kingpin of ka-pow!
And he is having one tremendous cow
Over the soulless insult Trump produced.
Villano is preparing to allow
His most effective blog posts to be loosed.
In words of utter cleverness soon noosed,
The Donald will be choking in despair.
Villano will require no further boost
To beat vile Trump till Trump’s beyond repair.
The swollen ego at Trump’s core will shatter.
You say Trump didn’t do it? Doesn’t matter.

A Fine Bromance

A Fine Bromance

 

 

(Blog-monger Mark Shea wants Bishop-elect Barron to “forge a relationship” with pro-abort Stephen Colbert.)

 

 

What can a harried bishop really do
with pro-aborts? He has to take a chance
and forge a new relationship on cue.
He has to cultivate a fine bromance.
So the irenic Shea, with feeling, pants.
Why, pro-aborts who love Planned Parenthood
are Christian brothers, too! Let us advance
to give them manly hugs! Hey, it’s all good.
Barron would hug a thousand if he could–
but, since he can’t, selects celebrities
as bishops and as bloggers always should.
Mark Shea’s heart, filled with charity, agrees–
though he won’t share this bright, bromantic spark:
just watching will be thrill enough for Mark.

Too Much Fun

Too Much Fun

 
(for Dennis N. O’Brien)

 
The earth quakes – and a thousand weirdos run.
The High Court’s ruling is not hailed as wise.
Dennis O’Brien’s having too much fun.

Under a threatening, unfriendly sun,
The neuter-gendered creatures shade their eyes.
The earth quakes – and a thousand weirdos run!

A sharpened rhyme, a doubly-weighted pun—
And those he targets start to realize
Dennis O’Brien’s having too much fun.

How many can evade his laughter? None.
His mockery is of titanic size.
The earth quakes – and a thousand weirdos run.

Common sense has become a storm to shun.
Yet in his work it actually applies!
Dennis O’Brien’s having too much fun.

Against sheer wackiness he rides as Hun
And razes flat the realm of stupid lies.
The earth quakes, and a thousand weirdos run.
Dennis O’Brien’s having too much fun.

Birthday Dram

Birthday Dram

 

 

(for Ian Moore-Morrans)

 

 

It’s with joy, and with no trace of sorrow,

That, upon an occasion I borrow

     From your family, I drink

     This Scotch neat.  And I think

You should add a new birthday tomorrow….

 

 

 

Happy birthday!
