Tim Berners-Lee at the opening of the Web Summit 2018 in Lisbon last night

Some boffin called Tim Berners-Lee
Thinks the internet can grow to be
A place of delights
Where people have rights
But that’s something that I don’t foresee

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and UK Prime Minister Theresa May in Brussels. Belgium last month

Apparently Britain now seeks
A deal that will last just twelve weeks
After which they can order
A brand new hard border
They’re talking out of their arse cheeks

Meanwhile…

Hmm.

Organisers have blamed rain and RTÉ for the low turnout at the Papal Mass in Phoenix Park last August

I think that we all can agree
Each one of us wanted to be
In a park with the Pope
But we just couldn’t cope
With some rain, so we watched on TV

The first official Dublin Monopoly game favours tourist spots over residential addresses

I want to know who is to blame
For destroying a once-favourite game
The streets we adored
Are gone from the board
Which strikes me as rather a shame

There’s a long night ahead, I’m afraid,
For the staff of our fine Fire Brigade
As pallets and tyres
Are thrown onto fires
And stupid behaviour displayed.

Peter Casey speaking at the Presidential election centre in Dublin Castle on Saturday

So Casey has made an advance
Which FF turned down at first glance
But some in the party
Replied with a hearty
Cry of “let’s give Pete a chance.”

Fianna Fáil TD Éamon O Cuiv (left) and Senator Mark Daly with Sorcha McAnespy after a party meeting in Tyrone yesterday evening.

A shocking new curve ball was thrown
By Éamon and Mark in Tyrone
When they claimed a new field
But their party revealed
That the two boys were acting alone

A Fine Gael member canvassing for a Yes Vote in Friday’s Blasphemy Referendum at Tara Street train station, Dublin 1 last week.

I’ve never been much of a fan
Of Ireland’s old blasphemy ban
So let’s end the oppression
Of our free expression
And bin it as quick as we can

It seems that one drinker in three
Considers themselves to be free
From doctors’ advice
Which is rather precise:
Don’t knock back a crate of chablis

Raw sewage from the equivalent of 88,000 people flows into Irish waters every day

It’s rather distressing to me
That in thirty eight parts of our sea
That all you can do
When swimming through poo
Is avoid it by swimming through wee.
