Washing Tons

A leader who works hard at quashing

The stories of graft money sloshing

So loves a good freebie,

Reportedly Bibi

Has Washington doing his washing.

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?

Moor Hypocrisy

The Covid-19 rule of six
Restricts how we mingle and mix
When outside the house
(Unless shooting grouse
Or similar creatures for kicks).

Fly-Blown

An old fellow driven to try
A zapper when chasing a fly
Ignited, alas,
Some slow-leaking gas,
And blew the whole kitchen sky-high.
