The man in charge of IS’s accounts,
Was laid out for the count,
When spec ops gunned him down,
From above an Iraqi town,
So IS fighters’ll be paid the wrong amount.
26 March 2016
As the population gets old,
China’s government was bold,
In extending leave,
To make sex a reprieve,
From work, lest the economy fold.
27 March 2016
The forces of Bashar al-Assad,
Left IS's militants rather sad,
When Palmyra they seized,
Making Putin awfully pleased,
While Obama leaves Syria to the mad.
28 March 2016
In expectation of the economy booming,
Dilma’s generosity with cash was blooming.
Now the President’s allies are few,
With an impeachment trial or two,
And economic woes looming.
29 March 2016
In the wake of a failed marriage,
A man hijacked a flying carriage.
The plan wasn’t the best:
With a fake suicide vest,
He got the plane to Cyprus and was discouraged.
30 March 2016
The British government is wrestling with crisis,
And for once it has nothing to do with ISIS!
Tata steel is in the lurch,
15,000 may need to job search,
For whom encouragement hardly suffices.
31 March 2016
Thunder roars around the throne,
As Jacob Zuma must pay for his home,
Having robbed the state,
The courts dictate,
That it’ll cost £13 million to atone.
