A Reenactment of the O Donovan Rossa funeral, O’Connell Street, Dublin in August
The centenary early next year,

The very next day,
So don’t go too hard on the beer.
An American hunter called Chase,
Found himself in a terrible place,
With a big grizzly bear,
So without a care,
He plunged his arm into its face.

Donald Trump at a rally in Tennessee on Saturday
Trump reckons there’ll always be one,
Mad genius with a gun,

The naked burger mural in Brunswick, Melbourne, Australia
Though Australians can be quite rude,
They prefer their art not to include,
Some under dressed chums,
Showing boobies and bums,
And making a mess of their food.

And ask it twice then,
Simply ask once again,
For a tie often covers a lie.
Dark streaks apparently coming from the Garni crater on Mars
Like everywhere up there in space,
Mars ain’t a hospitable place,
But now they’ve found water,
I feel that they ought to,
Land cosmonauts right on its face.
Phoenix Park, Dublin during the 1979 Papal visit
Paint everything yellow and white,
Because much to Iona’s delight,
We’ll soon have a guest,
Who’s simply the best,
And will set our poor country to right.

For the life of me I can’t see why,
Johnny Ronan said Arbeit Macht Frei,
To try to compare,
Us to what happened there,
Is a hell of a thing to imply.
