Don’t Forget Paris

One day into Biden and Harris/
Some stuff they’ve been doing so far is/
Executive orders/
On Covid and borders/
And dumping Trump’s boycott of Paris.

Biden: His Time.

Today at the Capitol Joe
Was sworn in where two weeks ago
Seditionists failed
As freedom prevailed.
The loser-in-chief didn’t show.

The Last Trump

There was an old man who fomented/
Unrest when his ego was dented,/
But now Donald Trump/
Is out on his rump,/
And totally unpresidented

Fannying the Flames

A product, one customer claims,/

Endorsed by big Hollywood names,/

Proved too hot to handle,/

Gwyn’s vadge-scented candle/

Exploding and shooting out flames./

Hookup, Line and Sinker

The dating apps Tinder and Bumble/

Are helping the FBI rumble/

Trump’s Capitol stormers/

As flirting informers/

Snare Proud Boys in search of a fumble./

TikTok and up she rises

Though pleasures in lockdown are scanty,
And much social media’s ranty,
Worse things, it may be,
Still happen at sea,
So cast off your cares with a shanty.

Where there’s muck, there’s brass

A chap in a bit of a bind/

Asked staff at a landfill to find/

The hard drive he trashed/

With bitcoins uncashed -/

They’re waiting, he says, to be mined./

The Giant Impeach

An orange-faced man of Palm Beach/

Who caused a security breach/

To try to redeem /

His tangerine dream /

Instead put the peach in impeach./

Amazeballs

It’s not that he frequently falls,/

Or pulls up when leaving the stalls,//

What’s making this horse/

So slow on the course/

Is just his extremely large balls.///

Not so Super Spread

A firm of Conservative chums/
Was rumbled by furious mums/
For spending five quid/
On food for each kid/
While trousering much larger sums./
