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

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.

But to operate with a free hand
he would the presidential powers expand.
No longer just a figurehead
as Head of State he would rule the roost instead.

When Prime Minister he was able to change the laws
so his many corruption charges gave him no pause.
As recent news from the country has not been great
a savior is needed to change its fate.

For fixing matches Italian football teams were shamed
although there is some dispute about who should be blamed.
Rating agencies the country continue to downgrade
meaning it will probably have to ask for financial aid.

Silvio is right to say the country needs a captain to steer the boat
and make sure it can be kept afloat.
Because the Costa Concordia’s Schettino is so assailable
his services are no longer available

To cheer things up and his supporters rally
Our hero would organize sex parties in the Quirinale.
There teenage girls could queue up to fall into his arms
and swoon at the thought of his wilted 76-year old charms.

Perhaps his detractors should their criticism tone down
and stop calling him an irresponsible clown.
While some think he should be punished for his misdeeds
Many Italians believe more Bunga Bunga is exactly what their country needs.
