Karl pulls it off

Karl Andersson (PhD, Manc),/
Whose thesis was ever so frank,/
Earned media scorn/
By watching some porn/
To note its effect on his wank.

Pecking order

In Italy, signs give direction
For those with a strong predilection
For sucking of face
To find the right place
For public displays of affection.

Semi-attached

Some students have raised an objection/
To Anthony Gormley’s erection/
Of what some have seen as/
A man with a penis/
In three-metre sideways projection.

Digital break-up

When children play robots at chess,/
The message is simple: Don’t mess;/
Some kids gotta learn/
To wait for their turn/
Or wind up with one finger less.

Think it Dover

The UK got into a hole/
By voting to leave in a poll/
And now attacks France/
For seizing the chance/
And taking back border control.

Shitelist of two

Some Tories are now to discuss/
The choice between Sunak and Truss,/
For picking our leader/
Is something, dear reader,/
That can’t be entrusted to us.

Eliminating heat

Conservative hopefuls competing/
Ignore how the planet is heating/
As Great Britain sweats/
And Johnson flies jets/
And skips an emergency meeting.

Johnson gets exit done

He partied while sick patients died,/
Protected a groper and lied,/
Reneged on his deals,/
Then dug in his heels/
Till no one was left on his side.

Johnson feels pinch

“I’ll get along fine”, declared Boris,/
“I’ll ride this thing out now, no worries,/
Though Sajid has quit,/
And Rishi, the shit,/
Et tu – I’ll give both jobs to Dorries”.

Booze from loos

Though many may take it amiss,/
Declaring, “I’m not drinking this!”,/
In Singapore brewers/
Say waste from the sewers/
Is great when you’re out on the piss.
