El Chapo had long defied capture,
But he met with Sean Penn
Who led the police to his den,
And they ended his criminal venture.

Unleashed mass sexual assaults,
And Merkel sent refugees home.

Said Labour was rather distraught,
About the government forcing unions to abate,
Deciding to whom members should donate,
Leaving the party 6 million short,

That AJAM would shortly surrender,

Some nut jobs thought these tactics they’d borrow,
So to Jakarta they went,
Utterly hell bent,
On finding innocent civilians to harrow.
