Fianna Fail leader Micheál Martin

This morning there’s cause for good cheer
It seems that we’ll get one more year
Without an election.
The chance of rejection
Gives Micheál a dose of the fear

A familiar, farting unicorn was used to show off Tesla’s sketch pad feature

Elon Musk says that it would be lame
If his theft of a picture became
A question of tort
To be fought out in court:
Cheating artists is merely a game

An updated version of the Drake equation suggests we are all alone in the universe

Our experience so far has shown
That space is a vast lifeless zone
And equations by Drake
Have conclusions that make
It more likely that we’re all alone

Lion’s Mane Jellyfish in Sandycove, County Dublin

There’s a creature that lives in the sea
Which is bigger than it used to be
So if you get a sting
Off this terrible thing
Just sprinkle the sore place with wee.

It’s a big day for those who might fear
That they’ll miss the event of the year
So get online and book
Or you’ll be a bit shook
And won’t see Pope Francis appear.

Harley-Davidson motorbikes are earmarked for tariffs in a EU-US trade war

The G7 couldn’t persuade
Trump not to put tariffs on trade
So a yank motorbike
Will have a price hike
You might want to stick to home made

Every summer the hacks leave the Pale
And go to a north western vale
It’s time for MacGill
For it’s always a thrill
To gaze at an elderly male.

Yesterday: Mulholland Falls

There’s a shabby and cruel online fad
Where a chap snaps a pic of his lad
And sends it to a stranger
Ignoring the danger
That he’ll look pathetic and sad

US President Donald Trump said he wants America to have a “space force”

When fascists put children in cages
And don’t want that on the front pages
They launch a new race
To put soldiers in space
Which is evil and sad and outrageous

U2, from left: Edge, Bono, Adam and Larry

Each ambassador at the UN
Deserves a night out now and then
So we’ll take them to U2
And they’ll know what to do
Vote for us, or it happens again
