Hypocrisy the lIBERAL; a Limerick poem

My Limerick for today … Political, yes;  Comical yes;  Truthful, I think so!

************

Rules to remember besides being silly are, it’s five lines long
The first two lines rhyme with each other and with the fifth line
The third and fourth lines also rhyme
Limericks are also supposed to have a certain rhythm.

 

There once was a man who sought a position
He studied to do well at his audition
Do you believe in God? No, was his reply
You are just the type; helpful smart sort of guy
Thank God for that was his whispered petition

Is 80 too old? — Ask Pelosi!

 

Okay! Haven’t posted on 1liner for a few, but today I feel silly. Nothing new about that! Last month I celebrated my 79th; therefore, I HESITATE TO SAY, I am almost 80 years old. (Same age as Pelosi)   —  When your nearly 80 you have the right to be silly.

I keep thinking of this dumb phrase I heard on an old black and white movie, sorry I can’t remember the Title of the film, the One Liner is:

“I am so happy my Birthday falls on the Day I was born.”

 

 

 

#FOWC, Word Prompts

Thanks, Twitter for this laugh!

Even Fandango, will laugh.

What an anomaly!  I was going to skip this prompt but then I discovered this anomaly and had to share it.

Please, you just have to see this little girl on twitter.

My First Political Limerick

Fandango does it again, the perfect prompt for my LIMERICK!

Coming Soon May 12!

Observed annually on May 12, National Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of English artist, illustrator, author and poet Edward Lear (May 12, 1812 – Jan. 29, 1888). Lear is known mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry, prose, and limericks.
Anyway, rules to remember besides being silly are, it’s five lines long
The first two lines rhyme with each other and with the fifth line
The third and fourth lines also rhyme
Limericks are also supposed to have a certain rhythm.

There was once an election!
And LEFT had their selection,
Surprise, anyway!
Which wrought the hearsay.
The upshot — insurrection!

 (A Limerick)  It’s supposed to be nonsense, ANYWAY like the politics and media of today!

#FOWC, Tanka Tuesday by Colleen Chesbro

The Devil Dances

Lately, the mainstream news is overwhelmingly blaring; “he said this and she said that” a seesaw of ups and downs.
Yet, I was again inspired to post due to the constant abuse of continued nothings.

Compose this SHADORMA. A form of poetry composed of six lines, no rhyme and 26 syllables total. My post here is an acceptance of Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry; her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Hobby and Play” look for the synonym underlined.

Also, Shadorma poetry is a syllabic poem with a meter of 3/5/3/3/7/5.

Hall of Shame
Mainstream ruse — passion
Pursuance
Not of Truth
Still, flirt with conspiracy 
The devil dances!
