President Michael D Higgins

In news that is certain to stun
The president will once more run
But will anyone be
Taking on Michael D
Or will they think he’s already won?

Fairyhouse Market, Couny Meath, where fake designer goods were seized yesterday

The gardaí decided to take
A pile of posh clothes that were fake
While some looked quite good
It’s well understood
The producers were all on the make.

In Algeria some people keep
Large herds of highly trained sheep
The shepherds in delight
In watching them fight
It’s enough to make anyone weep

England rugby supporters in Temple Bar

We all know that some tourists choose
To sit in a pub and drink booze
Though their numbers are down
There’s no need to frown
They’re thirsty, so landlords won’t lose

Donald Trump’s lawyer says he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 of his own money

Making bad news go away
Is what lawyers do every day
But would one put his hand
In his own pocket and
Use wads of his own cash to pay?

It’s high time that we all began
To fry some thin cakes in a pan
While in two other pots
Cook mushrooms, shallots
And add creme fraiche to finish the plan

The  mathematical symbol representing the concept of infinity.

Some boffins who teach up in Trinity
Have focused their minds on infinity
Which has applications
In complex equations
And may shed some light on Divinity

In Tokyo there’s a public school
Which adopted a rather odd rule
“You can’t come in here
Without Armani gear”
As cheaper clothes look so uncool.

A mass scuffle during the Mayo Vs Meath All-Ireland football final, 1996

The Congress of the GAA
Will be meeting before long to say
They’ve come up with a rule
For when losing one’s cool
Becomes an official melee.

US President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, at Bastille Day military parade in Paris last July

Trump summoned a military aide
And demanded an army parade
Where soldiers can prance
Like what happens in France
In a tawdry and sad masquerade.
