Former Ireland President Mary McAleese

In the Vatican on Women’s Day
Our Mary will not have her say
They asked her to talk
But told her to walk
‘Cause she says it’s not wrong to be gay

British Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Bejing yesterday

Mrs May gave a new DVD

Any nipples, or worse, pubic hair.

When Pluto got a nasty knock

The nerds. They upgraded
Our hero. You’re back, you great rock.

That they’re making millenials sad
But there’s no need to weep
As long as you keep
In the good books of your mum and dad.

US President Donald Trump

It’s not a good start to the year
If you’re threatening to go nuclear
So just panic and flail
And cower and wail
And do nothing but try to spread fear.
