I have written, and write, verses on different subjects,including politics. Some are satiric and some, I hope, amusing. Feel free to comment.

Trump – The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Those who hoped they would no longer have to see his sneer
are cheesed off when from the TV Trump will not disappear.
They watched him as ten Republicans debated
and his performance as garbage can be was rated.

He started off by displaying his skill as a debater
by insulting the Fox channel moderator.
His femmephobia was soon demonstrated
as against Megyn Kelly he remonstrated.

Carlos O’Farrill

¿Qué podemos hacer con Donald Trump
cuya familia se llamaba originalmente Drumpf?
Fue Goren quien le puso el nombre de un viajero?
Entonces podemos suponer que Donald es extranjero

Si habla en serio de querer ser de los Estados Unidos presidente
primero tendrá que demostrar que es residente.
Si él realmente espera al país ejecutar
él debe demostrar que no es alemán o de Qatar.

To Sue or Not to Sue (Trump again)

What can be done about Donald Trump
as more and more sponsors are now quick him to dump?
He will be missed when from the screen he finally fades away
and TV viewers can no longer hear him bray.

When children are told to bed they must go
they beg to stay up for the Donald Trump comedy show.
But when they see his ugly and bloated mug they are terrified
and leave the room for somewhere to hide.

Donald is Back

Donald Trump has once again taken the floor
and confirmed he is the U.S.A.’s biggest bore.
Of blowing his own trumpet he is never done
and once more threatens as a presidential candidate to run.

His latest oddball aberration
is to claim he is the only one who can save the nation.
He says he alone knows how the country should be managed
but refuses to say when and how his brain was damaged.

The last Trump

What can we make of Donald Trump
whose family name was originally Drumpf?
Was the name change done according to Goren?
If not, can we assume that Donald is foreign?

If he’s serious about wanting to be America’s President
he will first have to show he’s a natural born resident.
If he really hopes to run the nation
he must prove he is not German or Croatian.

Tony Keeps on Talking

Can’t someone tell Tony Blair that mum’s the word
as his pontificating becomes mind-bogglingly absurd?
With buddy George W.  he claimed he saw things that were not there
when with his war-mongering he tried us all to scare.

Only a Half Full Cup

This morning fans everywhere looked at the tele to see a good game
and applaud the talent of some famous  name.
When they heard no more football battles were to be fought.
why were so many of them left feeling distraught?

The competition’s biggest shock was champion Spain’s early goodbye
the reason for which no-one was able to explain why.
The fans will no longer experience another thrill
like Germany’s humiliation of Brazil.

Poor Dilma’s expression was excruciating to see
while Angela looked on with delighted glee.
When the German team the final won
Cristina was glad she decided the game to shun.

Now they cannot accuse the referee of being blind
with decisions that made them think he was out of his mind.
They can no longer cheer their favourite stars,
or get another two-for-one in local bars.

If FIFA’s people want to attract much-needed friends
they must start the next World Cup the day after the last one ends.
