Humpty Trumpty – how do I not love thee?


Humpty Trumpty, how do I not love thee? Let me count the ways:


A is for abide you; that I simply cannot do.

B is for Bullying and your constant threats to sue.

C is for Con Man of that there is no doubt.

D is for the dread, you are spreading all about!

E is for entertainer, of the dupes at all your rallies

F is for frightening, the word’s right up your alley

G is for gullible, the voters that you conned.

H is for honesty a trait you have not donned

I is for Intelligence, the people you ignore

J is for Julian, the jerk that you adore.

K is for Kremlin, you know all about this place

L is for the many lies, you tell them with bare face

M is for mess, you’ll lead us in the mire

N is for your neediness and praises from the choir

O is for odious and the decency that you’re lacking

P is R in Russian, who helped you with their hacking.

Q the question about tax returns you won’t show.

R is ‘R Vladimir who sets your heart aglow.

S is for sick-dog you are a sexist boor

T is for Trump a name we will abhor.

U is for University where you cheat people of their cash

V is for vengefulness, along with teeth that gnash.

W is for the wall of which you daily spout

X is for exit, you’ll impeach your own way out.

Y is the Yes-men in the Kakistocratic pool

Z is for the zero rating because you are such a fool.

Counting up, now let me see, that’s twenty-six in all

I wonder how long you’ll last in the house upon the Mall.

You’ll be sluiced away just like trash,

When washing down our streets;

No more Trumpty spouting off and then, an end to nasty tweets.

I have reached the regrettable realization that I may have squandered my life. I did a quick count recently and figured that I have visited about 66 countries, and lived for more than 3 years in 3 of them. During this time I completed 14 corporate moves (relocations) and have changed my address more than 23 times. I should have settled on a profession that would have kept me in one place with no packing and unpacking. When I think of the time I have spent bundling my life into and out of boxes. Ah well, it's all water under the bridge. But I am grateful for the experience. At the end of the day I will be able to say with a certain authority, "been there, done that". A note about this site’s Header Image The Header image for this site is of the Smith Avenue High Bridge. The bridge was built in 1889 and carries Minnesota State Highway 149 across its span of 2770 feet, 160 feet above the mighty Mississippi River. The picture was taken from the river looking to the north-east and downtown Saint Paul. The bridge is about 1040 miles from New Orleans. One of the reasons I like this view is that I come from a city which has a spectacular bridge. It’s the Clifton Suspension Bridge http://www.ikbrunel.org.uk/clifton-suspension-bridge which spans the Avon Gorge and the River Avon in Bristol, U.K. It’s about 1350 feet long and stands 245 feet above the river below. Sadly it has claimed the lives of more than 400 people who have committed suicide by jumping from the bridge. As a side note, not all attempts were successful. two small girls thrown off the bridge by their deranged father survived the fall when they were fished from the river by the crew of a passing pilot boat. The bridge was opened in 1864 and was designed by the 24 year old architect, Isambard Kingdom brunel. It took 35 years to complete.

  2. Those who take umbrage at my satire, ( or misplaced humour)instead of giving thought to the truth have already unfollowed me, here on WordPress, on Facebook and twitter. I think it’s kind of fun. There’s an old expression – – With friends like that, who needs enemas? Thanks for you comment, You know I look forwards to reading your posts and your comments.

  3. Keep them coming, but don’t make yourself unwell.


  4. It’s good to see you spout in verse what so many people are thinking and feeling.
