Hey Readers Since this is Valentine’s Day I thought I would write a Valentine’s themed poem to send a few tongue in cheek messagees to our political leaders and influencers though like all humour you may find some grains of truth in my carefully selected words. So here goes with a short selection of rhymes for those who’ve been making the news. I’ve titled this poem Political Musings On Valentine’s Day I hope you enjoy the read.
Political Musings On Valentine’s Day.
Nigel had a British card
and Nigel liked his Brexit
when I saw him ín club UK
I ran towards the exit.
Tony loved really loved himself
and waved his Union Jack
until I finally handcuffed him
for crimes against Iraq.
Humza Yousaf works so hard
and never ever complains
so make his Valentine’s day complete
but please don’t mention trains.
With Mhairi’s Paisley patterned chat
the voters hearts were melted
I have to say it made my day
when Labour got black belted.
David Cameron looks so lost
he seems in great distress
In fact I think it’s fair to say
the man’s an Eton mess .
I’ve got a job for Gordon Brown
so bring him up from the attic
he’s rearranging deckchairs
and he’s starting on Titanic .
Jeremy Corbyn seems ok
his favourite colour is red
but Kezia ran to the Daily Mail
when she found him under the bed.
Boris lost the Tory job
but Boris had a plan
forget the honey monster now
it’s time for Wheatabix man.
Ruth was so pleased with her Westminster card
that she told rebel Scots to calm down
until a fortune teller claimed
she would soon get a job as a clown
The Lib Dems say Tim’s the man
their Valentine has no fears
they claim the future has a name
It’s called the Farron years.
I honestly like Willie Rennie
he always e-mails me
but Nicola Sturgeon has no fears
I’ll stay with the SNP.
My Valentine’s message to Michael Gove
concerns the state of the press
If you believe The National’s bad
you’ve not read The Daily Express
To Murdo Fraser I will send
a song to be respected
Alice Cooper will tell him
that when voters speak
he’ll never be Elected.
If you ask a non Tory our favourite month
I know just what we’ll say
in unison we’ll answer June
well we can’t wait to get rid of May.
To Better Together on Valentine’s Day
with a thank you for telling our story
this has card has been sent by the BBC
with love from Jackanory
