French Toast Hamon

Monsieur Benoit Hamon of France/

Is leading the left-wing advance/

To run for the Elysée;/

Pundits on telly say*/

Hamon does not stand a chance.//


French Toast with Ham On

*My Francophone daughter suggests ‘Pundits on TV say’, which rhymes better with the last two syllables of Elysée, as the stress is on the middle syllable. But I still quite like the three syllable rhyme of ‘telly say’, even if you do have to mis-stress the word a bit.
