Found his life in a precarious position,
When to a cemetery he was tracked,
And inexplicably attacked,
Being shot, though with a lack of precision.

When the police sent the migrants away,
By smashing their home,
Making them unwelcome,

Besting his rivals in the fight,

While Bernie had to face,

Are back, on a mission quite barmy,
To train Libyans how to fight,
And save Libya from its plight,
Though their reception is likely to be stormy.

In a decision uncharacteristically kind,
The Olympic Committee said they don't mind,
If refugees compete,
As professional athletes,
So long as they leave their flags behind.
