… and in Brexit News

Friday, April 12th, 2019

So ‘Brexit means Brexit’, but then,
while this limerick’s contents I pen,
the flummoxed EU
still haven’t a clue
about Brexit’s mysterious ‘when’.

Brexit Talks Limerick

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

Says Bercow, “If Brexit talk fails
to make progress no faster than snails,
to cut Britain’s loss,
a coin I shall toss;
to leave, or remain – heads or tails?”

Misgendering Limerick

Saturday, March 23rd, 2019

I misgendered a ‘him’ as a ‘her’
and was labelled on Facebook a cur;
so I’ve vowed from this day
that my posts will now say
‘Hello to you Miss, Ma’am or Sir.’

Shutdown Limerick

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

Said Trump: “I was having a ball
with the shutdown to build me a wall.
But now it’s a race,
to stop losing face,
so it may end up just one foot tall.”

Naked Dining Limerick

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

A restaurant serving up food
for diners who ate in the nude,
went bust when they saw
I had walked through the door,
and everyone eating there spewed.

Primordial Planetesimal Limerick

Friday, January 4th, 2019

As deep into space Mankind goes,
a weird looking object arose;
and I must theorise
from its shape and its size,
it’s a booger sneezed out of God’s nose.

Christmas Dinner Limerick

Sunday, December 30th, 2018

At Christmas a guest often pouts
when the table at dinner time touts
not the turkey – that’s fine!
nor roast tatties – divine!
but a mountain of foul-smelling sprouts.

Return To Negotiations Limerick

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

To Europe, where May showed some pluck,
though the door to her limo got stuck;
this seemed quite symbolic,
since Brexit’s shambolic,
of a country that’s mired in the muck.

Whitehall Fracas Limerick

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

In the Chamber ’twas such a disgrace
when somebody high-jacked the mace;
and once he’d abused it
they should then have used it
to wallop the chap in the face.

O2 Outage Limerick

Sunday, December 9th, 2018

I shouldn’t have chosen O2,
the service provided is poo,
for I wish to refrain
from engaging my brain,
which an outage of wifi can do.

Trump Photo-Op Limerick

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

“Sharing stages with dumb heads of state
for photos,” says Donald, “can wait.
So rather than linger,
I’ll give them the finger,
since sharing is something I hate.”

Christmas Dinner Limerick

Saturday, December 1st, 2018

Christmas dinner will be rather tame;
I’ve turned vegan, so I am to blame.
No more flesh of turkey,
Nor of Pinky and Perky;
Instead, tofu cutlets – how lame!

Brexit Forecast Limerick

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

We munch on our scones and sip tea,
and wonder how Brexit will be.
So it’s lucky this pile
of rocks is an isle,
for we’re bound to end up all at sea.

M & S Window Display Limerick

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

While one group of activists bickers,
and another group childishly snickers,
we ask M&S
to undo their mess
and instantly take down their knickers.

New Press Conference rules

Saturday, November 17th, 2018

“Reporters,” said Sarah, “must stop,
catching President Trump on the hop;
so on Press Conference days
keep your voice full of praise
or he’ll pout and walk out in a strop.”

Rain Man

Friday, November 16th, 2018

Said Donald: “I have a great flair
at milking publicity’s glare.
So the last thing I crave
is to visit some grave
in a downpour that mucks up my hair.”

Samantha Markle Limerick

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Said Samantha: “The nuptial bash
of my sister was absolute trash;
for papa and myself
were left on the shelf
when we’d hoped to make oodles of cash.”

Crib Note For Donald

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Top left, there’s an oblong that’s blue;
add to this fifty stars, white in hue.
Then to offset the stars,
longitudinal bars,
six white, seven red, straight and true.

Putin – Trump Summit Limerick

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Said Donald, “My dear, darling Poots,
Perhaps we could wear matching suits;
and then, with my tongue,
once your praises I’ve sung,
I’ll happily lick clean your boots.”

World Cup Limerick – 11

Monday, July 16th, 2018

The Three Lions’ loss was a wrench;
for the final we sat on the bench.
But once all is told,
fortune favours the bold,
so congrats to the fabulous French.

Trump In Britain Limerick

Saturday, July 14th, 2018

At Windsor, the Donald, I see,
is meeting the Queen as the key
to a national trade deal,
though it seems most Brits feel
they’d rather she spat in his tea.

World Cup Limerick – 10

Saturday, July 14th, 2018

Though England’s World Cup run’s a boon,
with the rarity of a blue moon,
it has to be said,
our dreams are now dead,
and it will not be coming home soon.

World Cup Limerick – 9

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

So England are in the last four,
and we’ve now heard the three lions roar.
So come Wednesday night
we hope for the sight
of them showing the Croats the door.

World Cup Limerick – 8

Friday, July 6th, 2018

When the England team got on their bus,
they started to swear and to cuss.
For Colombian flair
had proven unfair
and won them more Oscars than us.

World Cup Limerick – 7

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Alas! It seems Neymar’s laid low;
to Brazil’s World Cup hopes it’s a blow;
and there’s palpable fear
he’ll be out for a year –
for he’s just gone and stubbed his big toe.

Weird Asteroid Limerick

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

The ast’roid that left us agog
looked like something that floats in the bog.
So perhaps from the loo
of the Enterprise crew
what we saw was the famed ‘Captain’s log’.

World Cup Limerick – 6

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

The French match brought copious tears
to the Argentine players whose fears
of a loss came to pass,
so we all raised a glass
in England and broke out the beers.

World Cup Limerick – 5

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

The Belgians, they beat us one-nil,
which might seem the bitterest pill;
yet it opens the door
to an easier draw
where we won’t be the grist to the mill.

World Cup Limerick – 4

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

The German’s were very hard put
‘gainst Korea, always on the wrong foot.
So alas, at full time,
coz they weren’t at their prime,
their World Cup campaign was kaput.
