LIMERICK -NEWS IN RHYME 
Dec 22 2020 : guests Ella & Magrus Borges 
Just cause he paid his dues
Does that excuse Tom cruise        
For his angry rant 
Which did not Enchant 
His film crew – headline news 
 
He stood up for the cause
Of social distancing laws
A Christmas pout!?
More like a shout
Exposing his feline claws 
 
Some of his Hollywood friends
Backed him up to  make amends 
For his snarky snit
And tantrum fit 
Through a COVID wide angle lens 
 
 
If China’s a major threat
Who’ll now place a bet
On which of the guys
Slept with spies
Does Swalwell feel any regret  ?
 
Will Biden ever reveal 
How does he really feel
About Hunter’ s role 
What was his goal
Just what is the deal ?
 
 The Hunter story’s rocky
 And press secretary Jen Saki
 Will not discuss
 The muss and the fuss 
 Hey I’m only a disc jockey! 
 
 
Was the election a fraud
1/2 the country won’t applaud
The voter mess
Maybe more is less 
The system is quite flawed 
 
Will Georgia have a fair race  
Will there still be a trace
That can’t be denied
What’s not verified
What’s missing ? A touch of grace
 
The London lockout news
Has England singing the blues
Regardless of class 
They’re leaving en masse
What are the COVID clues?
 
With a new British COVID strain
Cuomo’s starting to complain
He says “hey man”
I want a ban 
On flights -is that lose or gain ?

A new virus mutation 
Sparked a travel ban for the nation 
At Christmas time
Not quite sublime 
So the brits are off on vacation 
 
All this hoopla about Dr. Jill
The pundits can’t keep still
No medical degree
It’s a phd
She can’t prescribe a pill
 
It’s Mathematics day 
So calculate away 
The vaccine’s out
So do not pout
Now where is my Chardonnay?

The Weekly in Rhyme Limerick

Election chaos grows
And maybe it goes like it goes
As The Democrats chant
Their unity rant
The ballot counting flows

But Dems & GOP
A bit Like the big Red Sea Parting ways
Divisive days
Icy choreography

Will the parties ever unite
The futures not looking bright
The blue & the red
Are divided instead
It’s quite the American plight

Joe Biden says “here’s the deal”
The trumpsters  claim “stop the steal”
Was there voter fraud?
The systems flawed
The nation needs to heal

But what about the hate
Is that our American fate
Both sides seem glued
To being rude
It’s like a bad blind date

Biden is Bidin’ his time
It’s a National pantomime
Trump won’t concede
Can he take the lead
It’s hard to explain in rhyme

Now new COVID rules
Are The leaders fools
Lockdown at 10
Let’s return to zen
We’re all just molecules

The votes are plodding along
Why Were the pollsters so wrong Was the election fixed
Feedback is mixed
Let’s all just sing a song

Its National homemade bread day
So flour and knead away
From rye to ciabatta
And challah why notta?
Now where is my Chardonnay?
