Not My Latest Song (further lyrics pending), a collection by Giorgio Coniglio, July 2018.
This blogpost serves (covertly) as Singable Limerick Medley #29.
NOT MY LATEST SONG
(actual lyrics disappeared along with 33,000 other emails, but this collection could be sung to the "Limerick Song")
1) Though the IOC dinged us for doping,
Russian 'Hacking Teams' won't just be moping —
Expert dupers are scooping
Covert medals for duping.
It's a banner-year, Vladimir's hoping.
2) Kim Jong Un, please don't dare plant a nuke on
That magical place called 'The Yukon'.
Visit soon (bring kimchee); oh, how honored we'd be!
Drop by Whitehorse; you'll see, our terrain's mostly scree,
And so cold that you can't grow a cuke on.

3) He's been called Disingenuous Don
(And Rex Tillerson's voiced thereupon).
He'll confound fact and fable,
But loves watching cable —
Mostly Fox, where he finds there's 'More on'.
4) In discussions re V-L-A-D-I-M-I-R P-U-T-I-N,
I'd request to put this little toot in:
After letters you bump,
Get "Invalid, I, Trump".
Senate Hearings? There'll be no refutin'.
5) "Hateful critics don't follow my reasoning --
I've unflavored the borscht with new seasoning.
Even Fox mocks my views
And distributes fake news;
Unintelligent folks think I'm treasoning."
UKULELE-FRIENDLY FORMAT (and guitar, too!)
