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

Hillary Keeps on Flying

Secretary of State Clinton is always on the go
but exactly why no-one seems to know.
When she sees a nation on a map a trip cannot be resisted
and she’s been to some few even knew existed.

Because she did not want to be left at the gate
she had to beat Secretary Albright’s total of 98.
She is now up to number one hundred and two
And members of her exhausted entourage are threatening to sue.

Oh, Silvio, Silvio, wherefore art thou Silvio? (Apologies to W. Shakespeare)

Many Italians against Berlusconi vented their spleen
when they thought for good he had left the scene.
But their confidence was soon shaken
on discovering they were mistaken.

Despite those who think he should be in prison
Berlusconi like a phoenix from the ashes has arisen.
Italy’s most infamous resident
has announced he wants to be its president.

An Ignoramus’s View of the Higgs Boson


The news is out for which the world waited
with what can only be described as breath that was bated.
Smart physicists claim to have discovered something named after a Mr. Higgs,
although skeptics say what they might have seen were flying pigs.

Some, when they heard what the geniuses thought they saw
were astonished that it had caused such awe.
They could not understand why a ship’s bosun named Higgs
should be better than others at climbing rigs.
