Jihadists from Al Mourabitoun,
Are still playing to the same old tune,
After the Radisson Blu,
They went to Ouagadougou,
Where at the Splendid they left corpses strewn.

In spite of all the haters,
The proxy wars and baiters,
When the sanctions were lifted,
Iran’s attitude shifted,
And to American prisoners they said laters.

When it comes to the Trident Vote,
Corbyn had an idea to float,
Scrap the bomb, but keep the rockets,
The only hole burned’ll be in our pockets,
Leaving Britain with a useless boat.

Debating to ban Donald Trump,
For denouncing Muslims from the stump,
MPs called him a wazzock,
Who was bound to cause havoc,
Giving Trump the Hump.

Aimed to bring Libya security,
But rather than be one,

And set up three foreign ministries.

Terrified of knowledge impious,
Some thugs decided to be malicious,
And shot up Bacha Khan,
A uni in Pakistan,
In an assault cruel and pernicious.
21 January 2016
Across the dwindling West Bank,
Hopes for two states sank,
When the Israelis announced,
Though the UN denounced,
That some extra land they’d yank.
