Odes of Odium


1. Ode to Nancy Pelosi

Drain drain drain
This cold gray swamp
Let them feel the pain
Administered by Trump
Make it clean again
With that drainage pump.

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy,
Don’t think we are nosey
But your tastes look too fancy
We are not so dozy
As to give public finances
For private costs of Pelosi…

2. Ode to Diane Abbott:

O come, thou Bob Mugabe, come
To England’s humble shores
And take thine erring sister home
Back to yours.

Sir Simon Schama tried to shame her
Party for its views
But they carry on to blame the
Schoah on the Jews.

Abbott takes enormous fees
When telling students “hello”
Her comedy begs the question, “Please,
Abbott, where’s Costello?”

She has a great command of figures
A la Dr Evil
And all the population sniggers
Although I doubt that she will.

So Bob, please come and get her
Before she does more harm
And you in charge can set her
Of some stolen farm.

3. Ode to David Lammy

The enemy within.
It’s not his skin
At fault you’ll find
It’s just his mind.

 

More odes of odium and prose of opprobrium to come.
