    Our Leader is losing his mind,
    which leaves all of us in a bind.

    Porlock didn't start another limerick, so I will. (Being a newbie, Porlock is forgiven--this time. )

    Miss Murkley was richer than rich

    her staff always called her, "That witch!"

    her staff always called her, "That witch!"
    For their skimpy pay

    her staff always called her, "That witch!"
    For their skimpy pay
    And long hours each day

    For their skimpy pay
    And long hours each day,
    They would bow and scrape, thinking, "You b****."

    The holiday cheer's so exciting!
