Tiarnan O’Mahoney, one of three Anglo officials convicted at the High Court yesterday for concealing accounts connected to Sean Fitzpatrick from the Revenue
I thought ‘twould be to no avail,
That this prosecution would fail,
I just can’t believe,
Do my eyes deceive,
Did a judge put some bankers in jail?

Alessandro Ford, the first western student to be enrolled at Kim Il-sung University.
For five months a student named Ford,
Wasn’t lonely or frightened or bored,
He studied the tongue,
Of the great Kim Il-sung,
In the land that’s forever adored.
This Norwegian chap really should thank,
The judges who ordered his bank,
To cover the cost,
Of the night that he lost,
To the strip-club staff’s underhand prank.
I can’t quite believe that it’s five,
Years that Broadsheet’s been alive,
So let’s all take stock,
Of the Smithfield horse cock,
And hope Chompsky continues to thrive.

Tour de France 2015 winner Chris Froome in Paris yesterday
A Kenyan-born Brit called Chris Froome,
Took his bike for one hell of a zoom,
From Holland to France,
But his speedy advance,
Was drug-enhanced, many assume.
Down Camogie player Catherine McGourty
If you hit a ball with a stick,
Very far, flying true, flying quick,
Then shout out Hooray,
You’ve won a holiday,
As long as you come with a prick.
Chinese parents tend to have one,
Child, and it’s often a son,
If rumours are true,
They’ll soon allow two,
So get upstairs and have some more fun.
Legalise pot protest in London last month
The Durham police chief Ron Hogg,
Has left many people agog,
He’ll let you grow pot,
But hasn’t said what,
Happens now to his poor sniffer dog.
This morning lets all give a hearty,
Three cheers to our bould hero Marty,
Who gave his best shot,
But somehow did not,
Get his hole at an Olympic party.
Donald Trump (left) and John McCain
A credible hairdo called Trump,
Is finding life hard on the stump,
He showed some disdain,
For the great John McCain,
And gave his own party the hump.
