Fanad Lighthouse, County Donegal felt earthquake tremors yesterday
In Fanad there was cause to make
Reports of a very small shake
It’s the fifth one this year
But there’s nothing to fear
It was just a grand soft earthquake.

US President Donald Trump with British Prime Minister Theresa May at the G20 summit in Germany last month.
At last someone’s stood up to say
That there’s still somewhere called the UK
He thinks there’s a chance
That it’s somewhere near France
And he’s quite sure it’s not gone away.

It’s grand if a chap gets his kicks
By giving our yards about chicks
But watch out for the swine
Who crosses a line
And smears himself with dirt that sticks
A Paddy Power mobile billboard during General Election 2016
So is it outrageous to think
That TDs should cough up for their drink?
Not quaff till they’re ill
And run up a bill
That they pay with a nod and a wink.
Anthony Scaramucci, Donald Trump’s communications director
So Anthony made a quick call
Full of language that’s bound to appall
And you will not believe
What he said about Steve
Poor old Bannon won’t like it at all.
The venomous Red imported Fire Ant
The Aussies are giving out grants
To wipe out imported fire ants
These small blighters bring
One hell of a sting
And could wipe out some native plants.

For the life of me I can’t see why
They’re still breaking news about Di
Why does anyone care
About that whole affair?
It’s time to let this matter lie
As its life signs grow ever more faint
We say goodnight to Microsoft Paint
It was easy and fun
But it got the job done
Though these days it’s looking quite quaint.
RTÉ newsreader Sharon ni Bheolain has criticised the gender pay gap at the station that allows male colleagues like Bryan Dobson (left) earn more for the same work
The women who work on TV
Are saying that they’d like to see
If themselves and the males
Are on different pay scales
For the same shows inside RTÉ
Justin Bieber performing in New York last year
In China the culture bureau
Said Bieber can’t put on a show
As officials are sure
That his work’s too impure
To be heard in a town like Guangzhou.
