A man Johnson pays to advise
Is hoping we all empathise
That while we stayed in,
He went for a spin
To Teesdale – a sight for sore eyes.
The distance to keep is three fridges,
Which equals a thousand-odd midges
A tall bloke called Gus,
One sixth of a bus
Or 0.01 London Bridges.
A quizzer lost out, very sadly,
On grounds of pronouncing so badly
The Spands singer’s name,
But who backed his claim?
The fellow himself, Tony Hadley.
A good way to lighten the gloom
When stuck in a tedious Zoom,
Or such workplace meeting,
Where everyone’s bleating,
Is add a real goat to the room.
An old woman citing the Bible/
Sued gay people, holding them liable/
For global malaise;/
The judge backed the gays,/
And ruled her complaint was not viable.///
A leader who pushes a drug,/
In order to ward off a bug,/
Which he claims is great/
But doctors don’t rate,/
Is scamming, or else he’s a mug.///
A football club’s crowd simulation/
Resulted in mortification/
For using – cue lols -/
Designed for self-gratification.///
Blood plasma transfused from a llama
May help pierce this virus’s armour,
The cells of the beast
Resistance – move over Big Pharma!
A long spell in lockdown can suck
For frustrated singletons, stuck
Without very much
To do, say the Dutch,
So find a good buddy to fuck.
