Limericks by Bob Aldrich

As the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs
Denford will give the president briefs.
The job ties up his hands
He cannot give commands
He just gives options, risks and beliefs.
When there’s been bank notes portraits to fill,
Lack of females has fostered ill will.
Now the feminist voice
Elevates the hard choice
To find women who will “fit the bill.”

What will Iran do when sanctions cease?
Will they let us inspect and police?
Instead of compliance
We’ll soon see defiance.
We have brokered a Chamberlain peace.
