Default Four for the Fourth?

Four for the Fourth

We always watch bright fireworks
that our country shares,
but Trump’s inflammatory quirks
sparked China’s No rockets’ red glares!

Thanks, Ed.

And will Donald do the hoochie coochie to the Grucci fireworks this fourth? It’s his masturbation celebration for his White Supremacist nation.

Acid Rain

The rain has me dismayed.
It pours and pours and pours.
Why does it rain on my parade?
Why won’t it rain on yours?

Remembering our gallant War of Independence aviators

My tanks make the day, though it rains and it rains,
But where is my fly-by? I’m very distressed;
I said there should be Revolutionary planes,
But them DoD traitors turned down my request.

Default July is when the "Summer Complaints" invade northern New England

Whose woods are these ? I think I know;
He's domiciled in Buffalo.
But in July, I'm pretty damn sure
He rents a cabin in New Hampshire.

Oh dear,
Mr Trump,
the British Ambassador called you a chump.

And inept
and deceptive-
who knew Her Majesty’s envoy could be so perceptive?


Though true
we know,
it’s a totally unacceptable diplomatic no-go.

Do not
be afraid Sir,
the Conservative Party will come to your aid Sir.

And with Boris
in charge
will appoint the oleaginous Sir Nigel Farage

A good one, Jim. "The oleaginous Sir Nigel Farage" is particularly and horribly good, although I hope it will remain merely a poetic fantasy.
