In France, the peace was shattered,
As the police and rioters clattered,
Over labour reforms,
That the protesters scorn,
Though once battered they scattered.

Though in a cruel twist of irony,
The more they burn,
The more poachers earn,
Leaving Kenya far from victory.

Were given an all mighty fright,
When left wing activists on a crusade,
Came to their conference to set up a blockade,
Where the Police rescued them from their plight.

A football team from Leicester City,
Had long been, the beneficiaries of pity,
But that is all in the past,
For the Premier League they won at last,
Causing their fans much levity.

Mainly from families who think the state’s alright,
Just so long as it doesn’t impose,
Tests, which they vehemently oppose,
Designed to compare like and unlike.

In defiance of all logic,
With powers demagogic,

Of the Republican Party;
Which if not farcical is tragic.

Medecins Sans Frontieres,
The finest NGO out there,
Withdrew from the WHS,
And in a statement, laid stress,
Upon its proficiency at spreading hot air.
