Do limericks have a place in politics, historically speaking?

It seems that a man named Navarro

Had an notion without shame or sorrow

"If Trump's feeling grouchy

I'll trash Dr. Fauci

And reap my reward on the morrow!"



Forgive typo in line 2. 

That's what happens when you create a fresh limerick right in the question box, then make last second edits.

    There once was an old man called Trump,

    Whose poll numbers were on a slump.

    He told many lies

    And fired some guys.

    He was a most terrible grump.

    Sam needs to add 'big' or similar short word in front of 'slump' to make that line scan.

    Otherwise, excellent stuff!

    No. You will have to turn it into a haiku.

    Limericks are fun. I prefer the ones about Nantucket.

    Trump wants the throne by any means

    With plenty of salsa, rice and beans

    Keeps on lying like a rug

    The rebel flag he will hug

    But show him a poll, both ears steams.

    Donald Trump is coronaviral:

    his brain's in a downward spiral.

    That pale nimbus of hair

    proves there's nothing up there

    but an empty skull, fluff and denial.
