Rewarding failure

Poor Cameron can’t understand/

Why things didn’t go as he planned,/

But though it’s depressing,/

There is just one blessing – /

The book’s earned him 800 grand!///

Hey Mr Tangerine Man

The President’s seeking to dump/

Some light bulbs that give the old chump/

An orangey hue/

With which they imbue/

No person on earth except Trump.///

Hard worker

A French firm was ordered to pay/

When one of its staff passed away,/

For Xavier X/

Who died during sex,/

Pegged out on the job, judges say.///

Prorogue Mahone Again

A court found proroguing to stimey,/

As Johnson has done, rather grimy -/

It’s very unlawful/

And also quite awful,/

Misleading the number one limey.///

Hawkward squad

The White House advisor John Bolton,/

Who liked it so hot it was molten,/

Fell out with the chief,/

A source of relief/

To countries he urged an assault on.///

Ruddy Shocking

Poor gullible dupe Amber Rudd/

Is shocked to find Johnson a dudd/

Whose actions reveal/

His talk of a deal/

Is just a big mountain of crudd.///

Swot is he on about?

Old Boris, who says ‘girly swot’,/

And similar jolly old rot,/

Who reeks of misogyny/

And can’t count his progeny,/

Continues to win diddly-squat.///

See ya later, ex-dictator

Old Robert Mugabe of Zim/

Saw life there get ever more grim,/

One-time liberator/

Turned ageing dictator,/

Deposed once the problem was him.///

Go Fish

A DNA study reveals/

No sharks, sturgeon, lizards or seals/

Alive in Loch Ness -/

The monster, they guess,/

Is probably oversized eels.///

Lying Tory

As Boris’s plan went Pete Tong,/

Alone in the Westminster throng,/

House leader incumbent/

Rees-Mogg lay recumbent/

And dreamed of his mother’s chaise longue.///
