Methane Burps

A poem about the Curiosity rover detecting a methane burp - a possible indication of life - on Mars:

A methane burp
A gaseous gurgle
A bacterial belch of life suggestion
Surfacing from Mars' digestion

No little green men
No Clangers, no Borg
No rich man, no poor man struggling 'neath that rose sky
No sign of a lawman beating up the wrong guy

Myleene Klass and Griff Rhys Jones Like living in enormous homes But Griff Rhys Jones and Myleene Klass Don't want to pay a mansion tax If Labour wins they'll emigrate They've helped me to at last locate A decent reason to vote Labour - Feck off and do us all a favour

Stop Fucking Swearing

One of Peter Pinkney's first decisions when he became RMT National President in 2013 was to ban members of the national executive (which included me at the time) from swearing in meetings ...

When Pinkney won the President
We knew he would be daring
We weren't expecting this one though -
He banned us fucking swearing!

Farageland

New words for The Clash classic, 'Garageland':

Backing the Farage with my bullshit detector
Winning an election with a Tory defector
We hate politicians but we're worse than the rest
Keep quiet about our policy to destroy the NHS

We're a Farage band - ah-ah-ah
We come from Farageland - ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

Carpe Diem

Seize the day, Theresa May,
Lock extremist scum away
While you're there, inspect the cell
And lock yourself inside as well
