Tryptych of Limerick


Deplorable: that’s her election
as it veers in a vulgar direction.
Though some mention Lewinsky,
it’s really Alinsky
revealed as her true predilection.

We chafe at the future event
with a murmur of futile dissent.
While her media trumpeted,
candidates plummeted
down to a depth we resent.

I mourn for our empire’s decadence
descending to realms of irrelevance;
into bloated bureaucracies:
data dumb-ocracy’s
dearly departed preeminence.

Inspired by 3 limerick enthusiasts and fellow poetry-bloggers:
Flammeus Gladius, Dennis Lange and D.N. O’Brien

Go read their fantastic poetry !
