TRUMPKU — Poetry of Freedom

(Promoted by Colorado Pols)

The Japanese Haiku is a poetic form as subtle as it is simple.   It has three lines and 17 feet, arranged 5,7,5

At the suggestion of our proud warrior of the plains, Mamajama55, we are sponsoring a Trumpku festival, dedicated to the lout that befouls our land.  We open with her offering:

Wafting on the air

A foul stench of rotten meat

Trump tweets the nation

-0-

To which Voyageur adds this salute:

 

A teacher still fights

On Colorado’s vast plain

For truth, not Trump.

-0-

Trump is president.

The dreams of Lincoln now lie

Dead at his feet.

-0-

Trump hates Canada.

The North Country is refuge

For our lost, best hopes.

-0-

Trump grabs at pussy

And claims to cherish women.

What a foul, foul lie.

-0-

A twit on twitter

Now shames a once proud  nation.

Make America hate.

-0-

Standing freedom’s watch

A Bowman on the prairie

Strangles Trump with hemp.

-0-

In a mountain fort

A dauntless Duke still holds court

Daring to breathe free.

-0-

In the mountain west

Gertie does her gallant best

Flying freedom’s flag.

-0-

Not a skinny cook

Writes a page in freedom’s book:

Kindness conquers hate.

-0-

 

 

Haiku away, my friends!

    Those are great. I like the idea of "tribute posts":

     

    On the tilting deck

    Voyageur sniffs the rank wind

    reporting: Trump still stinks

     

    and here's a peace offering for CHB:

     

    banging left and right

    a proud conservative

    proclaims his values

     

    In the blog's shadows

    A Blue Cat prowls alone

    We miss her wisdom.

     

    I'll post more as I think of them.  So many Polsters, so little time. I'll definitely give Jason S some more grief over the Stormy Daniels strip club visit angel

    Pols news beat now surreal

    Strippers at the Diamond Club

    Salzman on the Storm

     

    Pop tunes Euro style

    T and A? A and T? Oh!

    It's just David T8.

     

    Bruised but unbroken

    The Powerful Pear abides

    Unconquered by Coffman

     

    Repeal and Replace!

    Jill Stein Voters are the worst!

    To blame for all Trump's sins

     

    Ahoy Zappatero!

    The Bennet breaches starboard!

    Quick! the harpoon, mate.

     

    ah…way too much fun for a word geek. If you feel left out and want to be honored with a haiku or limerick, let me know. Feel free to give me shit too. You’ll notice that you can break the rules a bit and throw in an extra syllable here and there. .

    davebarnes and MADCO, this is your format, dudes. Jump in anytime.

    'Never Trump' Moddy

    Cheers a nation turning shoddy.

    Yes, power corrupts.

    Trump's Bane is Jason,

    Leader of our merry blog.

    He is more smarter.

    Bringer of sea light:

    Perspective on pompousness

  7. Voyageur says:

    Johnston owns four guns.

    Why would a guv'nor pack heat?

    State Patrol guards his ass.

  8. RepealAndReplace says:

    I prefer more traditional American poetry:

    "There once was a GOP pol from Nantucket….."

  9. gertie97 says:

    Trump does stink

    Stinks to high heaven he does

    Outlive stink.

  10. unnamed says:

    Trump was in Russia

    Smell of urine in the air

    The hotel room stinks!!!

  11. Voyageur says:

    Fighter with no name

    Strives for a far better world.

    Stop, look and listen!

  12. Voyageur says:

    Twelve apostles

    Spread freedom's holy scripture.

    Carnegie is Judas!

  13. Conserv. Head Banger says:

    I've never been much into poetry although have a few books of poetry somewhere around the house. As an aside, I did a walk along Sherman St. on Capitol Hill in Denver over this past weekend. I had forgotten about Poet's Row between 10th & 11th; all the apartment buildings named for poets. Check it out sometime.

  14. mamajama55 says:

    Trump's lawyers say that

    he was never elected

    So can't be impeached.
