Dishonourable Members

Old Julian Smith, the Chief Whip,/

Whose party is losing its grip,/

Instructed the Chair/

To break with his pair/

Then brushed it all off as a slip.///

Retreat from Moscow

A small-handed Russophile bloke/

Declared that he kinda misspoke,/

And meant to say ‘wouldn’t’,/

A story that shouldn’t/

Convince many rational folk.///

Whom tabloids have published some dirt on -/

And left his position uncertain.///

Final Reckoning

To mark the end of Russia 29018, here are three World Cup Final limericks for you:

“It’s all gone without any hitch”,/

Declared Vlad Vladimirovich,/

But then Pussy Riot/

Disrupted the quiet/

Invading the Cup Final pitch.///

***

Among the new heroes of France/

Are many afforded their chance/

By that immigration/

From nation to nation/

At which those like Trump look askance.///

***

A young French attacker named Kylian/

Cost PSG quite a few mylian;/

He burst on the scene/

To score as a teen,/

The first since a certain Brazylian.///

William the Plonkerer

A tapestry telling through pix/

What happened in 1066/

Shows men and their mounts,/

An Oxford don counts,/

With 93 needlework pricks.///

Flying Visit

There is a big empty balloon/

That looks like a total buffoon;/

With bright yellow hair,/

Chock full of hot air,/

And so is his airborne lampoon.///

Frozen Meal

Researchers who looked in the tummy/

Of Ötzi the old Alpine mummy/

Found goat fat inside/

Which one of them tried/

And found unbelievably crummy.///

Natural Ass

The POTUS gave Merkel some sass/

Relating to imports of gas;/

In view of discussions/

Trump’s had with the Russians,/

He’s talking again from his ass.///

The Turd Man

Big blundering Boris has quit,/
A sign of a deepening split,/
But May, undeterred,/
Will polish the turd,/
As Britain sinks deeper in shit.///
