Tweetledee, Tweedledum and Tweeting-don?

Updated on July 19, 2017

From one good friend to another

Chris Mills (cam8510) suggested I write a satirical poem featuring Tweetledee and Tweetledon? Tweetledee could be Assad or Putin. To add to the mix is Tweeting-don.

Here you go Chris, I hope I did not disappoint.

Tweetledee, Tweedledum and Tweeting-don

© by Shyron Shenko

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Tweedledum and Tweedledee are fictional characters in an English nursery rhyme and in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Their names may have originally come from an epigram written by poet John Byrom. Wikipedia

Personality: Silly, Obnoxious, Nonsensical, Hyperactive, Cunning, Whimsical, Childish

Appearance: Pink nose, Red hair, Black shoes

Tweedledee, the president of Rushing Red

Grins as he thinks of Tweeting-don

With whom (so to speak) he is in bed

If Tweeting-don found himself to be the puppet

Then their Bromance would be dead


Tweedledee stuck his pink nose in the US elections

At Tweeting-don specific directions

To smear his opponent with innuendos, lies and questions

And no one cared enough to make corrections


Then Tweedledee thumbed his pink nose

And took his bromance in a different direction

As he danced around with Tweedledum

And contemplated their unholy connection


Tweedledee wasn’t done with Tweeting-don

Although he was in alliance with Tweetledum

When Tweedledum set off his dirty bomb

With pretend concerned from Tweeting-don


For Tweetledee to get his way

And Tweeting-don to have his say

They must pretend there are no ties

As the strings attached implies


To break the look of their coalition

Tweeting-don must break with all tradition

To make it look like there’s no connection

He sent bombs per his ex-opponent’s suggestion


Tweeting-don, did not intend to hit anyone

Just empty warehouses

To make it appear

He and Tweedledee have no connection


The Presidential election 2016?

Do you believe Vladimir Putin helped Donald Trump win the Presidential election 2016?

      Au fait, thank you for the compliment and comment.

      Tweeting-Don said he would make America Great Again

      But, wants to take us back to who knows when

      For where he wants to lead there is no rhyme or reason

      Maybe it is because it is for Putin he is pleasing.

      I do like your reference "Tweedle-Don." Oh, it's Tweeting-Don. Sorry. He is sort of a fairy tale character -- like Voldemort.

      Tweedle-Don is his own worst enemy. If he would behave with some dignity once . . . but of course that's out of the question given that he's 71 years old and set in his ways, right or wrong.

      So well expressed as always. Blessings to you all dear friend.

      Svetlana, thank you for the comments. I believe that Putin is making trump lots of money and trump’s love of money and lust for power is the driving force.

      I do believe that they are in cahoots and I believe he has bought most of the congressmen, which is sad for our people who are decent, honest, upright hard working people.

      I too love Stephen Colbert.

      Shyron:

      It sounds very complicated. I don't know if Putin and Trump are in cahoots, but I despise both separately and together.

      I love "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", which the only fake news program that I watch.

      I laugh, but with a heavy heart.

      It is such a sad - dark - macabre fairy tale a la 17th -18th century. Those stories were frightening and there were two mortal sins for children - curiosity and disobedience.

      We are curious now, what will happen when we cross the Obedience Line?

      Missy, I really appreciate your comments. I just heard this morning Mr. trump met secretly with TWO former presidents of Columbia at his resort in Florida. I guess he is selling America to the highest bidder. Seems to me he is ready to bring about the END OF TIME, I wonder if he ever read a bible.

      Blessings dear friend.

      A bit of humor attached to a truth, Shyron. They truly are these tweedles you characterize here in your poem. It amazes me that some still refuse to see the connection. How much of an in your face does it have to be? I think if there are these many questions, along with an investigation by the FBI that has been in motion since July of last year, I mean, what is it that people don't believe about it? It's such a frustrating time to be living in America. The ones who are investigating and the ones who work in the White House with this Bozo the Clown, need to buckle down and get rid of this fool and his compadres!

      Wow...this perfect satire really hit home base. The names fit like two peas in a pod. So Trump merely did what his predecessor wanted to do in the first place. Yet all hailed Trump as if this an entirely new concept. And the band played on. Very cool poem! Happy Easter.

      This is one of those topics it feels good to laugh about, but then we return to reality and realize OMG it's actually happening...then it's not so funny, is it? Anyway, thank you for the levity. It is appreciated.

      Au fait, thank you so much for the comment and compliment, yes I heard that the airport was in business the next day and very little damage was done. It was obvious that the bombing in Syria was to make it look like trump and Putin do not have an alliance.

      Hope all is well with you.

      Blessings to you my dear friend

      This is hilarious, Shyron. It also could be very close to the truth. Love the main picture and "Puppet on a String" by Elvis is a perfect choice for a song to accompany it. Loved this.

      The Syrian airbase Trump bombed was up and working the next day and the runway wasn't damaged. There were some calls to Russia to make sure their most important equipment and their people wouldn't be there when the bombs landed.

      Agree it was in part a show to convince the gullible that Trump really isn't sweet on Puttie, but I think it was also to let Kim Jong Un know that Trump would be just as likely to bomb N. Korea if they don't cooperate.

      Well done.

      Blessings to you all, dear friend. Take care . . .

      Great political satire.

      Though far afar,

      the satire,

      that plays all over,

      Is hard to ignore.

      we are not sure,

      What more, in future,

      Is in store for US....A!!

      Hello Shy - It is good to get the angst of the current environment out of our systems. You certainly did here in this piece. It looks like a classic to me.

      You've nailed a secret affair. One just cannot trust a leader who happens to be a puppet of the enemy. The picture of Putin and The Don is hilarious.

      OMG, where did you get that picture of Putin and The Don? This is hilarious! I'm listening to Elvis X 2, I've never seen that video. I love it and him! Your satire is brilliant.

      When will we be free?

      Of the imposter living in our white house

      His cabinet reeks of foul play, hiding the truth. I smell a mouse!

      Ah the good old days when Bush lied about Weapons Of Mass Destruction

      At least he put America first, there were no Russian obstruction

      I see prison time for the spy's who report to Putin

      Or perhaps a firing squad, who'll shootem

      Obama, I know you're happy and free

      But we need you back desperately!!!!!!!
