Weekly Scribblings, and we're asked to
consider the word "tribute".  I seem to
be headed for irreverent comic relief ...
as usual!   I coined the title word.  It
seemed to fit.  I also had some Photoshop
fun with a recent newspaper headline.

A tip 'o me hat, a nod o' me head
It' time to pay a tribute
No need to consider our president
He's his own horn to toot.

And now, heaven help us
He says he's high sheriff of the land
No need to pay him accolades
He gives himself a hand

All his crooked white collar cohorts
Think in him the sun has risen
That comes as no small wonder
He's released them all from prison.

I'm just a little granny
But I'll still have my say
I plan to  save my tribute
And pray for a brighter day,


  1. From one granny to another ~~ Brava! I also went the comic route (surprised?)

    1. I did not post my comical poem as it wasn’t brand new.

    1. Thank you. I wasn't able to leave a comment at your site for some reason. I enjoyed visiting your blog.

  5. Oh, so well said! I think you summed it up perfectly, and I love the deft humour.

  6. I think the little ole Granny would do a far better job....Bev for President !)

  7. He has ruined it with me. Never would I give him a tribute. I think you did really fine with your 'diss'.

  8. I wonder if there will be any tributes when he's gone - he doesn't deserve a single word.

  9. I'll pay tribute to the day he's out of office for good!

  10. Tribute to him being defeated . . . by almost anyone!

  11. I'm smiling with hope as I look forward with you to that brighter day. It can't come soon enough.
