Of the Batmen, he wasn’t the best

Of the Batmen, he wasn’t the best.
But his image will outlast the rest.
Somewhat pudgy and stiff
With his “Bam” and his “Biff”
Rest in Peace, old chum, Adam West.

At last! It’s the coming of Comey

At last! It’s the coming of Comey.
The hearings will be so awecomey.
The nation’s a-flitter
With one eye on Twitter
And the Congress in HD at homey.

The word has down from above

The word has down from above
That there can be no greater love
Than to lay down our lives
So another survives.
Souls that today we show memory of.

The circus is not coming to town

The circus is not coming to town
Ringling Brothers has shut it down.
No trapeze or high wire.
No tigers through fire.
And all the clowns now wear a frown.

For yelling a question at Price*

For yelling a question at Price*
In a manner that was deemed “not nice”,
A reporter was jailed
Because he fussed and wailed
While pointing a dangerous device.**

*Tom Price, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services

Our F. B. I. Director Comey

Our F. B. I. Director Comey
Has been fired and sent to his homey.
Trump knows the pillory
That happened to Hillary
And is afraid of a fine tooth combey.

On the passing of his hundredth day

On the passing of his hundredth day
The Tweeter-in-Chief stopped to say,
“While my every vow
Has been thwarted somehow,
I’m the best Prez in the U. S. A."

When the President said “wire-tap”

When the President said “wire-tap”
He really meant “giant mouse-trap”.
When he said “Obama”,
He meant to say “Mama”.
So what’s all the fuss about that?

There once was a gal named Loretta

There once was a gal named Loretta
Who could not be called a go-getta.
She slept until noon.
Just to dust made her swoon.
And the cat could not getta to petta.

Wait a minute! It’s not “La La Land?”

Wait a minute!  It’s not “La La Land?”
How did “Moonlight” get up on the stand?
Was Miss Philippines
Somewhere behind the scenes?
And did Steve Harvey somehow have a hand?

There once was a country named Sweden

There once was a country named Sweden
That many regard as an eden.
But not Donald Trump
Who says it’s a dump,
Where terrorists have the land bleedin’.

There once was a gal named Lenore

There once was a gal named Lenore
Who stood and demanded the floor.
She said, “I don’t care
If you snicker or stare.”
But, I’m not wearing heels any more.”

A 5 grand to one bet on Leicester

A 5 grand to one bet on Leicester
Paid off for some lucky inveicester.
            It seems like a dream
            To this football team
And a nightmare to those in Mancheicester.

The latest to fold was Jeb Bush

The latest to fold was Jeb Bush.
We have to say, “Jeb, what’s the rush?
            There’s plenty of time,
            So get back in the line.
Where Trump kicks you all in the tush.

There once was a Christian name Strong

There once was a Christian name Strong
Who lived as if Lent was yearlong
            Fridays he idd not eat
            Any chicken or meat
Unless the line at Red Lobster is long.
