Welcome to Newsericks (as in News Limericks), a tongue-in-cheek rhyming account of the daily news (admittedly with a liberal bias).
Yes, yes — as the English majors among you may have already noticed, many of my poems aren’t technically limericks (A-A-B-B-A rhyme scheme), since I’ve found that the other rhyme schemes usually work better for me. But “News-poem” doesn’t make a good domain name.
