Enduring Hope

Enduring Hope


“Trump’s still going to prison!” they whine.

“Once he’s ousted, that lovely design

Will be swiftly fulfilled!

So Bob Mueller has willed!”

They have not noticed poor Bob’s decline.

Reelection Night

Reelection Night


Mueller turned out to be an idiot,

Stuttering and forgetful and absurd.

All the fools who to this sad fool deferred?

He demonstrated they were full of shit.

Upon the wall the prophecy is writ,

But Democrats can’t seem to read a word.

It is as if events had not occurred.

They will not alter course one little bit.

Russia and race and reparations, guys:

That’s the campaign these lunatics will run.

So let’s enjoy the shrillness of their cries,

Their rhetoric, so easily undone,

The way they clown and claim they’re being wise:

On Reelection Night, we’ll have great fun.

Robert Mueller’s a saint!  He’s still cool!

Don’t you dare say that he proved a fool!

He was sober and grave—

And his relics we’ll save:

Rags we’ve soaked in his puddles of drool.

Swampsters opted for Mueller.  But why?

Stated reasons were all one big lie:

He was pretty much dead.

What a great figurehead!

His senility made him the guy.

Now we know:

Mueller was leaking in more

ways than one.

Why He Won’t Be Charged

Why He Won’t Be Charged


Revised answers he blithely invented?

Tortured lapses that left discontented

Both his allies and foes?

We can’t blame him for those.

It is clear the poor loser’s demented.

“As a sleuth, he’s the best.  Ain’t no fooling

Robert Mueller!  And every court ruling

Will be going his way!”

That’s what punks used to say.

Then their hero showed up, vaguely drooling.

Mueller and Biden at the Home

Mueller and Biden at the Home


“Looks,” says Joe, “like you need some help there,

My friend Bob.  I advise – for I care.

Though you be a forgetter,

Your poor brain will work better

If you sniff the appropriate hair.”

Good Old Uncle Bob

Good Old Uncle Bob


The critique of Bob Mueller descends

To the gutter – and deeply offends.

It is way out of line!

Uncle Bob did just fine—

For he didn’t quite soil his Depends.

Down Memory Lane

He raped her.  Donald Trump did.  In the past.

And other famous people raped her, too.

But mostly Donald Trump.  Now – now at last—

She tells her frightful tale, and tells it true.

If Robert Mueller’s failure was her cue,

So what?  Don’t judge her.  Hey, she writes for Elle!

You’re simply jealous none of them raped you—

Those guys, plus Donald Trump.  So go to Hell!

Men used to want her ass then.  Pricks would swell

With every indication of desire.

If pants did not come down, still she could tell.

She knew she had the stuff to light a fire.

Now she is in her desiccated phase.

Donald Trump raped her once.  Those were the days!
