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.

World Cup Limerick – 3

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

The England team’s strength was imposed,
and poor Panama duly disposed.

It’s long been an annual fad
for every lassie and lad

Airport Bar Limerick

I swear I might swoon,
or else I could die of old age.

The wait for the World Cup is done,
with a month full of footballing fun.
But if you’re Brazilian,
it’s one to a zillion
you hope you’re not thrashed seven-one.

D-7 Limerick

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

The G-7’s rather passé,
and this losery groups had its day.
So I’m ditching those haters
and asking dictators
to join my D-7 today.

Dotard and Rocket Man Summit

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

One oddly coiffed, one oddly shorn,
on which one looks worse, I am torn;
and if Kim should dare
to mock Donald’s hair,
it could end up scissors at dawn.

G-7 Limerick

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

The G-7’s needing a fix,
for Trump has been up to his tricks;
and with tariffs galore
world trade is at war,
so next year it might be G-6.
