    we the literary oppressed fight with biro and pencil against the dark forces ranged against us

    here are some sublime examples of polemic odes produced by TSR comrades recently:

    a tousled haired Tory called Bo
    said "Cripes i could run the whole show"
    "i can kneel for the Queen
    "and with pigs i ain't been
    "so come on chaps let's tally-ho !!"

    thanks to Comrade B for this heroic effort

    there was a vest wearer called Jez
    who fancied himself as the Prez;
    he told his Front Bench
    "look guys i am Hench
    despite what that pig pleaser sez"


    anonymous

    There once was a PM called Cam
    Who had a small penchant for ham
    When all of his capers
    Were splashed in the papers
    He shrugged saying, "I am who I am"

    Comrade Monkey from the Brighton & Hove oblast

    A man indenial called Dave
    Couldn't admit to the things that he gave
    He greeted pork
    Without using a fork
    Now the crowd shouts "Why couldn't you behave?"

    This weapon appears to be blunt and not heavy enough to inflict any serious wounding. 0/10 would not buy.

    I'd rather someone invent a time machine to aid Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell in his quest to go back in time to assassinate Margaret Thatcher.

    A ex-deputy PM called Clegg,
    Thought a friend was pulling his leg,
    But when he saw all the stories,
    He knew that the tories,
    Would be taken down a peg

    Labour party politician known as Ed,
    Thought the Queen would say "off with your head"
    Bc he couldn't stop smiling
    When he knew they were all trying
    To avoid the oinkment being spread.

    These limericks are so unimpressive
    Your liberal ideology far too excessive
    It may take a while
    but stop being senile
    Jezza's rule would be only regressive

    There was a young fellow called bear
    Who sensed political change in the air
    The Left he could not quite hit
    With what passed for his wit
    And he fell in love with Jeremy's hair

    It's been nearly a decade since I wrote a poem. :indiff:

    She ditched the blue nun
    For frontbench fun
    To private school went her son;
    A bubbling flute held up high
    A toast to the red-washed sky
    Madame Mao, take a bow
    Your career is just about done
