Political Perfidy—dVerse MTB
I’m not prone to expressing my viewpoint on hot-button issues and perhaps these don’t exactly meet the humor standard, but just writing the form was fun…a bit like the limerick. Gayle’s prompt over at dVerse is for the Clerihew, a humor poem, based on a well-known figure, written in a rhyme scheme of AAbb.
Hitler was evil, no doubt
and a coward, perhaps, the lout!
He fell so in love with his power
that he used his regime to devour.
My hero was once Kaepernick;
celebrity’s made him a prick.
Patriotic—that’s me—so I don’t like to see
disrespect in the land of the free.
Clinton and Trump are at odds.
Please don’t listen to media nods.
If you will cast your vote,
of the ISSUES take note.
