Four Lines That Rhyme
Quick quatrains with a rhyme scheme.
Wystan Hugh, he
liked a sherry.
It made him feel
Her weight is great
her line is fine
Her heart is smart
her spine's aligned
My friend can bend -
we're not sure when
She planned to stand
back up again
Yes, I'll go out
If you insist -
I went out in the fog
Those migrant children shall not pass
Let's cause a huge furore
That David Davies is an arse
Even for a Tory
Michael Gove's most wicked crime
As far as most of us can tell
Was not to leave his kid behind
But leaving ours behind as well
You sob for love lost from the labouring class
With a heart that's so heavy, so bitter your tears
But the love was not lost in the ten months just past
But was lost in the previous twenty-odd years
When I was young and full of rage
I hated Tories to my core.
But now I've reached a gentler age
I hate the fuckers even more.
