US President Donald Trump’s proposed  military parade could cost $92m

The boys at the Pentagon say
That there’s going to be a delay
Before Trump’s parade
As they were dismayed
At the huge price they will have to pay

Londoner Tereza Burki is suing an elite dating service for £12,000 after she failed to meet anybody

Each singleton hopes it’s their fate
To meet someone nice on a date
But Seventy Thirty
Lacked enough flirty
Chaps, though they charge a high rate

French far right politician Marine Le Pen (left) has been invited to speak at this year’s Web Summit by the event’s co-founder Paddy Cosgrave (right)

It must be embarrassing when
You set up a conference and then
Much to the delight
Of the very far right
You’re giving a stage to Le Pen

The Observatory bar of the Grand Central Hotel in Belfast is selling beer at £8 a pint

In Belfast they’ve opened a bar
Where some of booze prices are
So frightfully high
You’d soon question why
You chose to go there for a jar

Hawk Cliff, Dalkey, County Dublin

In Dalkey the locals don’t seek
To sneak a quick peek at your cheek
And to bathe in the nude
Is not only rude
But the action of some crazy freak

US Vice President Mike Pence announcing plans for a ‘Space Force’ yesterday

Trump’s Spiro Agnew Mike Pence
Outlined his new plans for defence
And the dangers they face
In the vacuum of space
It was stupid and pointless and dense.

Maura Derrane, with RTÉ 1 Today show co-host Dáithí Ó Sé, said she wouldn’t like to see a female presenter of the Rose of Tralee

We live in a dark era when
There’s savage oppression of men
At least we can say
That Dáithí Ó Sé
Will speak to the Roses again

A security alert was sparked when a package containing a sex toy was discovered on Luas tracks

If you find a suspect device
Then call the police in a trice
Then watch as the fuzz
Start giggling because
It’s a tube that should go somewhere nice

Sinn Fein’s Michelle O’Neill (left) and the DUP’s Arlene Foster hold power in an assembly that has not sat for 17 months

When it comes to not getting things done
The northerners are number one
Since Sinn Féin agree
With the DUP
That the best course of action is none.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and US president Donald Trump at Windsor Castle last month

Yet again poor old Donald’s irate
At the news of last month’s royal date
So what sorry fool
Forgot Trump’s golden rule?
He comes early, The man’s never late.
