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

Who Upset the Apple Cart?

Can there be any more unappetizing sight
than an apple out of which someone has taken a bite?
Yet multitudes camped out for days on end
anxious on such an apple their cash to spend.

When the iPhone number 4 appeared
lucky buyers applauded and cheered.
But on their enthusiasm soon was put a blight
when the screen kept disappearing out of sight.

The Empire Strikes Back

Today in Britain nobody minds the clouds
as the streets are filled with cheering crowds.
David Cameron’s cup runneth over
and he’s walking on a field of clover.

The country’s economic problems are put aside
and his promised benefit cuts not yet applied.
Health service complaints the P.M. ignores
as he continues to pore over every U.K. citizen’s Olympics scores.

Welcome to Cloud Cuckoo Land

Anyone trying to describe the cloud cuckoo land our political leaders inhabit
risks falling down the same hole as Alice’s rabbit.
It is a place where everything is so askew
one wonders if they are imbibing their very own brew.

Because voters must make an effort to understand
what happens in that godforsaken land,
let us take as an example the Republican presidential convention
that attracted the whole world’s bemused attention.
