Britain’s deputy Prime Minister, Damian Green, who resigned yesterday.

May’s ally, poor Damian Green
Is departing the Downing Street scene
As he once took a look
At some internet muck
And fibbed when he should have come clean

          …shhh Charger…now where was I…

          But his porn search was seen
          Now that old tory Green
          Will have to go back and work as a banker

          …done

    Here’s a proper bit of verse for today the shortest day of the year or Yule from TS Eliot

    When the short day is brightest, with frost and fire,
    The brief sun flames the ice, on pond and ditches,
    In windless cold that is the heart’s heat…
    Between melting and freezing
    The soul’s sap quivers.

        Just for you.

        I heard a bird sing
        In the dark of December.
        A magical thing
        And sweet to remember.

        ‘We are nearer to Spring
        Than we were in September,’
        I heard a bird sing
        In the dark of December.

        – Oliver Herford

          I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
          Across the Irish Sea,
          I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
          It’s the only thing for me.
          I’ve tried walking sideways,
          And walking to the front,
          But people just look at me,
          And say it’s a publicity stunt.
          I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
          To prove that I love you.
          An immigrant lad, loved an Irish colleen
          From Dublin Galway Bay.
          He longed for her arms,
          But she spurned his charms,
          And sailed o’er the foam away
          She left the lad by himself, on his own
          All alone, a-sorrowing
          And sadly he dreamed, or at least that’s the
          way it seemed, buddy,
          That an angel choir did sing –
          An angel choir did sing.
          I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
          Across the Irish Sea.
          I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
          It’s the finest thing for me.
          And so I’ve tried walking sideways,
          And walking to the front.
          But people just laughed, and said,
          “It’s a publicity stunt”.
          So I’m walking backwards for Christmas
          To prove that I love you.
