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

Goodbye Sarko


The election is over with the result as expected
as Nicolas Sarkozy is by the voters rejected.
He must put on his best face so they will not see him grieve
when the Elysée Palace he is told he must leave.

About why he was dumped there will be much debate
with many opinions expressed about his sad fate.
Was it the countless promises made and not kept
that made electors decide he was simply inept?

His claim that France is overrun with foreigners left many aghast
as they asked if Sarko was ignorant of his family’s immigrant past.
Or were they disillusioned and consider things had gone too far
when instead of a President they got a Pop Star?

He thought to be treated as an emperor he had every right
but his resemblance to Napoleon is only in height.
When interacting with the plebs he always seemed ill-at-ease
and could not find a way the public to please.

Free trips on a billionaire’s yacht he finds lots of fun
and tells those who complain to eat a nice brioche bun.
One piece of news I am glad I never missed
is that Nico pushed for French cuisine to be added to the World Heritage List.

Is it not then most odd, and this is no joke,
that instead of good wines Sarko prefers Diet Coke?
And, despite his love of French food, it should not anyone amaze
that he will always refuse any dish served with Sauce Hollandaise.
