Cummings and Goings

Congress condemns Trump
over serious Syria chaos
while even Erdogan trolls Trump
over his Twitter tantrums
& mangled "make a deal" missive.

When a dozen Dems shared the stage,
they were joined by GOP talking points
in attacks against Medicare for All,
while Warren got frontrunner treatment.
& Bernie showed up hale and hardy.

Impeachment builds, Democrats push,
Republicans flail, obstruction cracks,
& as Giuliani digs himself deeper,
Trump seems ready to throw him overboard.

And Rep. Elijah Cummings passes away
but his work and truth will carry on.

Cummings goes off, impeachment goes on
& if Dems stay strong & GOP shows courage
Trump & Giuliani should be going, going gone.

For now, they're here -- and so are we
sharing space, thoughts & a pitcher or three
at your local progressive social club.

Talking Turkey, Chatting Chickens

A majority of the American people
support impeachment, conviction, removal
but Republican cowards in Congress
can't fight for the Constitution.

Trump is desperate & dangerous
riling his base, attacking his critics
& greenlighting Turkey military moves
to the devastation of the Kurds
& the dismay of his own party.

China cracks down on the NBA
igniting a bipartisan backlash
but Trump won't defend free speech
while asking China to investigate Biden.

Giuliani's pals under arrest,
more whistleblowers, more leaks,
more women detailing Trump assaults
& even Biden finally favors impeachment.

While we're talking Turkey & China
the GOP's chatting chickens won't challenge
the talking turkey in the White House.

It's time the paltry poultry of the GOP
realize their goose is cooked.

Share & sip, socialize & schmooze
as you raise a glass & raise your voice
at your local progressive social club.

The Silent Minority

Democrats move forward on impeachment
for Trump's continued attempts to coerce
foreign govs into US election interference.
And Republicans remain silent.

Pompeo was at Trump's Ukraine call.
Pence was part of the blackmail.
Barr was part of the cover-up.
And Republicans remain silent.

Trump suggested shooting immigrants,
considered border moats and spikes
& also slashes food stamps.
And Republicans remain silent.

An American majority supports impeachment,
more support conviction than oppose it,
while Trump doubles-down on attacks,
threats, lies, bribes, crimes & corruption ...
& suggests his supporters may get violent.
And Republicans remain silent.

Nixon once spoke of a silent majority.
Trump, the Nixon of a new era,
holds the reins of a silent minority.

Now it's time for him to go the way of Nixon
or the way the majority is ready to send him.

Much to talk about, gawk about,
cheers, jeers & share beers about
at your local progressive social club.

The Whistle's Been Blown

A suppressed whistleblower's complaint
over blackmailing foreign governments
into interfering with American elections
is the latest of many impeachable offenses
& the one that's breaking through the din.

Democrats were divided on Impeachment,
with some investigating, some procrastinating,
but now the dam-breaking flood of support
has sounded an alarm even Pelosi's ringing.

Trump has whistled for his supporters
to circle the wagons, repeat his lies,
in a familiar echo chamber of deception,
but could his whistle finally be broken?

Ukraine broke through more than Russia
as Democrats and voters say enough is enough,
and after years of crime, corruption & abuses,
we're finally whistling the tune of impeachment.

The whistle's been blown.
Now let's strike up the band.
Nobody knows the whole tune to this song,
but time for everyone to sing along.

Toasts to impeachment & whistleblowers
& talk of a historic week with familiar faces
at your local progressive social club.
