A leader who works hard at quashing
The stories of graft money sloshing
So loves a good freebie,
Has Washington doing his washing.
A giant pouched rat in Cambodia
Won prizes and places on podia
By sweeping the ground
For mines that, unfound,
When stepped on are apt to explodia.
A prize-winning scientist who
Created a knife from his poo
Discovered that tools
Constructed from stools
Make shitty utensils – who knew?
The Covid-19 rule of six
Restricts how we mingle and mix
When outside the house
(Unless shooting grouse
Or similar creatures for kicks).
An old fellow driven to try
A zapper when chasing a fly
Some slow-leaking gas,
And blew the whole kitchen sky-high.
