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

Will an Inmate be Allowed to Run the Looney Bin?

Ron Paul was a presidential pre-candidate in 2008
who never made it to the starting gate.
Now son and eye doctor Randal hopes he will have more success than dad
when he runs for the Senate, though many think he is mad.

To represent his state of Texas he is the Tea Party’s choice
so now U.S. Libertarians can all rejoice.
What is a Libertarian, one might ask, what have I missed?
It is just a fancy name for an anarchist.

Look Out for the Aliens

3 May 2010

Beware of Aliens from Outer Space

Stephen Hawking’s Brief History of Time was a book millions bought but very few read
though it proved to be a great cure for insomnia when taken to bed.
His explanations left me so puzzled and scratching my head
that I picked up an old Agatha Christie mystery to unravel instead.

Now the professor has told us aliens do indeed exist,
a piece of information I would never have missed.
He admonishes us to them not to make an approach
or we might end up being squashed like an unwanted cockroach.

British Elections

2 May 2010

May sixth is the date of the British general election,
a process that should give us pause for reflection.
With the peculiar system of counting employed
many voters’ ballots might just as well be destroyed.

It is usually a case of the same old story
with most people voting either Labour or Tory.
But the method they use to calculate
can mean the party with most votes is left at the gate.
