So keep your head down
With a smile or a frown
Or Covid will be here to stay

Chico Rodrigues (above), the Brazilian president’s deputy leader in the senate, was reportedly caught with 30,000 reals (more than €4,500) ‘between his buttocks’

Brazilian leader Jair
Has a colleague who kept in his rear
Some cash that he stole
Which he put up his hole
To give the police a bum steer

A ‘Covid Shebeen’ raided by Gardaí in the midlands investigating alleged breaches of liquor licencing legislation

If like me you think it obscene
That your regular drinking routine
Has been put on hold
Then it’s time you were told
To visit your local shebeen

The Confessors on RTÉ One revealed the sacrement would often involve “priests in a very abusive, voyeuristic, not to mention erotic way … drawing people out ”

It’s asserted that more than one priest
Was a dirty voyeuristic beast
Who made each confession
An x-rated session
A practice we’re told has now ceased

Dr. Anthony Fauci (right), the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the Trump campaign is running an ad featuring him without his permission

Anthony Fauci is sad
That Trump used his voice in an ad
As the doctor refuses
To say how he chooses
To vote, and he feels he’s been had

A treaty signed by England’s King Charles II granted 50 Flemish fishermen from Bruges “eternal rights” to English fishing waters.

It seems that an old English king
Passed a curious law allowing
The Flemish to fish
Off his coast as they wish
And some say that this right’s still a thing
