  1. Jay

    There was a part-time poet named Shatter,
    Who nattered and nattered and nattered
    To the Garda Commissioner about matters
    That really he shouldn’t have, and so they both lost their jobs but probably have big pensions anyway so do they give two sh**s

  2. Hank

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    As corrupt as auld Sepp Blatter
    He should be in jail
    Or at least out on bail
    Except he’s rich so it doesn’t matter

  3. gallantman

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter,
    Who came in for news and a natter,
    His rhymes weren’t worth hearin’,
    ‘Cept to avoid talk of Guerin
    And all other topics that matter!

  4. Lemonheadlenny

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter,
    Who deigned to broadcast inane frivolous chatter,
    And so, to the sounds of “good grief”,
    He pitched up beside Moncreiff,
    The upshot; little more than pitter patter

  5. Custo

    There was a part time poet called shatter
    Who resigned over some police matter
    His book was quite shat
    And further to that,
    I’m sure that his poems will be shatter.

    There once was an ex minister of justice
    Whose chief commissioner thought he was full of toughness
    But justice is not blind
    Callinan resigned
    And still the system has no robustness

  7. Smith

    There was a part-time poet named Shatter
    Went on Denis fm for a natter
    Jumping over Moncrief
    Callinan, the old police chief
    Landed an overdue clatter

  8. Clampers Outside!

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    Whose poetry books were on fire
    To extinguish them quick, and save all his ricks
    He asked would I empty me bladder
    But he’s a lying aul prick, so I put away me dick
    And told him, it’s not worth the bother

  9. LookingOn

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    A good man’s name he did try to splatter
    But Wallace surprised,
    Amid cover-ups and lies,
    And delivered his head on a platter

  10. Sam

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    Got the commissioner’s head on a platter
    Now his latest hook –
    with his poems and his book –
    try making his wallet grow fatter.

  11. Pat Walsh

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    Who always enjoyed his own patter
    He would talk the talk
    But could he walk the walk?
    He strolled into Newstalk for a natter

  12. ollie

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    who liked his cod in beer batter
    But along came the rossers
    To give him some bother
    So he drove off as mad as a hatter

  13. Joe the Lion

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    but because water charges, symphiosotomy victims and poor women getting battered
    really none of this clickbait stuff matters

  14. The Old Boy

    I’ve only spotted this now, so too late to cook up an entry, but for heaven’s sake, give us a first line that scans!

  15. bisted

    There was a part-time poet called Shatter
    Who used the police chief as a ratter
    He liked to learn slease
    About his fellow TDs
    But they’re both gone now and no longer matter

  16. Chris

    There once was a part time poet named Shatter

    Who was actually the first proper reforming minster for Justice in a long time

    Who tackled issues most would not touch with a 6ft Justice pole for fear of ending on the dole

    Citizenship reform, gay marriage referendum, judges pay, prison conditions to name a few

    But he’s a bit different and a bit of a snob and a rare sight in the Dail as a proud Jew.

    So we canned him good. That’s politics for you.
