Post Your Rumsfeld Limericks Here
Edited on Wed Nov-08-06 02:46 PM by Autonomy
Inspired by the Goodbye Rummy Haiku thread.

There was a secretary named Rummy
With his generals he wasn't so chummy
He invaded Baghdad
With the army he had
And now he looks like a dummy.

1. .
There once was an asshole named Dick
Who thought America he could trick
His bubble was burst
His troubles got worse
And hes still a big ass prick !!

Donald Rumsfeld, ex-Sec of Defense
Launched an illegal war on pretense
The voters said, NO
The Generals said, GO!!
So Bush cast him out: penitence.

3. Sure!
His party a comical ruin,
And with no freaking clue what he's doin'
Bush chose to dispense
With his Chief of Defense
And ask Daddy to give him a new one.

5. Well, I haven't had to write a limerick
in ages, but, given that I'm part Irish, I should probably give it a shot. So, here goes, ahem.

There once was a man named Rummy
Whom many thought quite the Dummy
He made a mess of Baghdad
which made the people quite mad
And now they are no longer chummy

There once was a man named Donny
Who once had a boss named Ronny
They made a mess of Baghdad
which is really quite sad
'cause now the country is crummy

Gimme a little more time, I could probably come up with some more. We Irish are a pretty creative lot, you know!

:evilgrin:

6. Ok--
There once was a devious little man
who put NutraSweet in every Coke can,
the people got sick
but he didn't give a lick;
too busy trumping up war with Iran.

9. I love limmericks!
Secretary Don Rumsfeld
Had a big job that could not be long held
Hung on for six years
Caused many moms tears
An now we've got Bob Gates, til' he's felled

11. Another
Now reeling and lost in the streets,
Republicans know that defeat
Means boundless disaster
For Bush and for Hastert,
And for Rumsfeld a hasty retreat.

13. Here ya go
There once was a Sec of Defense
Whose prose was Excessively Dense
His Philosopher's Stone
Was an Unknown Unknown -
I'll Be Damned If It Made Any Sense

19. Very nice
Both of yours so far have an air of the esoteric that meshes very well with Rumsfeld's endless desire to seem incomprehensible.

Well done!

20. Yet another
With a smile on his thin rodent's lips,
And a soul like the darkest eclipse
Rumsfeld fled from the scene
And soon came to be seen
As the first of the rats to jump ship.


I got plenty of mad rhymes for the house.

14. Rummy Take 2
There was a demented old Oracle
Whose pronouncements were oft metaphorical
But unlike those at Delph
He just questioned himself
And his questions were strictly rhetorical

16. My contribution
With many stupid wrong plans he led,
So many good American men and women are dead.
Not until the populace said NO,
Did the idiot boy prince let him go,
Now Rumsfield should pay with his head.

21. One more try.
There was once a warmonger named Don,
Who was wrong on the war all along.
Said the weapons were there,
Somewhere near Baghdad Square.
Now we're all better off with him gone...

22. here's one :)
There once was a man named Rummy
who worked for a real big dummy
A war in Iraq
broke his back
now Rummy is out on his bummy
