Some folks will be down in the dumps Hillary lost … Donald came up trumps Britain made their exit They voted for Brexit I have a question …are we all chumps? JAN ALLISON 11~09~16 I think we're all sick of the status quo They get rich and to us a bone they throw Our vote reflects Too much neglect So let's cover our ears and enjoy the show WRITTEN BY TIM SMITH Nothing can kill an ******** Quiet like a Presidential Election I limped to my room Feeling the doom But woke Okay with the national selection. WRITTEN BY JAMES ANDERSEN DUCK WINS! SALAMANDER CONCEDES! It was a pretty heady do’in But duck was good at poo’in Plus loud quacks And nasty attacks Political skills for a shoo in WRITTEN BY LIM'RICK FLATS Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in spades She conceded, his hand was well played No more bickering Nor cat fighting America has voted, the choice was made WRITTEN BY ALEXIS Y The vitriol flowed, the venom spewed The gamut was run from nasty to rude They covered their flaws By flapping their jaws At least neither showed up in the nude WRITTEN BY JOHN LAWLESS That smirking skunk likes to blow his TRUMPet And treat all women like they are strumpets Oh for goodness sake He's an evil snake If there's a woman he says, "I'll hump it!" WRITTEN BY MARTI SUTHERLAND Two taxpayers in Thomaston Checked the donate a dollar box~ done Many months now have been wooed By two candidates pursued Can't believe the smug smile cause he won WRITTEN BY SARA KENDRICK Lay in bed, watched TV, gripped in fear As results on the screen all appeared Thought 'Clinton', what a chump Since I've woke woke with a trump' She said 'yes, I can smell it from here' WRITTEN BY VIV WIGLEY All the white beer bellied rednecks are stump Those are out of work that voted for Trump Up in arms not with humor Because there is a rumor going around his cite taking a dump Import a hundred- thousand to perk Mexican immigrants smirk To build his high brick wall, The unmitigated gall cheap economics and people to work WRITTEN BY SONNY AND EVE ROPER There was a candidate whose name was Trump In the white house wanted to set up camp With any chance that he found Convinced everyone around Thus people voted for the dirty tramp! WRITTEN BY DEMETRIOS TRIFIATIS The trumpet has now been blown The king ascends to his throne But who will pay the bail When Hillary's in jail We've entered the twilight zone WRITTEN BY JOSEPH MAY There once was a rich billionaire Who took away the poors healthcare Breeds hatred for Islam He's a walking time bomb The guys america's worse nightmare WRITTEN BY STEPHEN PENNELL

WOW lots of good reads here! I thought Tim's was hilarious. I got put off of Facebook for posting my soup poem, "I blocked Yo Azz". After seeing Tim's erection verse mine's not that bad! (Or good depending who's on the receiving end!

Funny limericks on a bizarre man. Loved the one by John Lawless best. Glad I didn't submit one, it would have been censored as too obscene even for adults! Still in a state of shock, but am stocking up on pain killers – to endure the next four years with this man at the helm of the ship of state. Thanks for stopping by. / M

I agree Armand - the people have voted him in and we have to put up and shut up and give the guy a chance - will be interesting to see what happens in the future for us all especially with the implications of Brexit for the Brits:-) hugs Jan xx

See Soup mail! Dear, Jan, here is my contribution: DONALD TRUMP There was a candidate whose name was Trump/ In the white house wanted to set up camp/ With any chance that he found/ Convinced everyone around/ Thus people voted for the dirty tramp!/ Demetrios Trifiatis

“Trump First Campaign Promise” All the white beer bellied rednecks are stump Those are out of work that voted for Trump Up in arms not with humor Because there is a rumor going around his cite taking a dump Import a hundred- thousand to perk Mexican immigrants smirk To build his high brick wall, The unmitigated gall cheap economics and people to work by Sonny & Eve

these guys did great limericks. Too bad there is not more sorrow shown through their limericks. I don't think I can even write one since, for me, it is not even a laughing matter. It's a horror show and i seriously feel sick to my stomach!

The vitriol flowed, the venom spewed... the gamut was run from nasty to rude..... they covered their flaws.... by flapping their jaws..... at least neither showed up in the nude.

All very amusing, although I can't find anything funny about him or this crisis, (I have a few choice words, but won't say). God please help America. Captcha is HRT, give me a U, and that about sums it up for US.
