The Imperial Russian Cruiser Dmitriy Donskoi rumoured to contain 200 tons of gold when it sank

If there’s truth in the tales that they’ve told
Some Koreans have found lots of gold
But you should beware
Of buying a share
Before we see what will unfold

One company gives a great perk
Its staff all spend less time at work
So if you employ
Please help spread this joy
And don’t be a miserable jerk.

That your earliest memory is fiction
But folks like to cleave
To the stories they weave
So telling them can cause some friction

Met a woman with whom he got on
But to his dismay
The very next day

A fisherman had a wee fright
Which quite quickly turned to delight
For who else can say

Has a carapace that’s coloured white?

Which you may or may not cure with wee

A drone image of a circular enclosure in the Boyne Valley close to Newgrange

A rather large henge has been found
Near Meath’s famous burial mound
It’s thanks to the heat
That we’re getting this treat
Who knows what else waits underground?

Yesterday: ‘They Look Giant Henges’

Presidential hopeful, independent Senator Gerard Craughwell

There are rumours that say we might see
A challenger for Michael D
Can Craughwell arrange
A bid for regime change
And finally set Ireland free?

Following Boris Johnson’s resignation yesterday, Jeremy Hunt (above) has been appointed UK’s Foreign Secretary

A fellow called Jeremy Hunt
Has been given a shunt to the front
After making a mess
Of the poor NHS
He’s a fool, and yes I’m being blunt.

Brexit Secretary David Davis, who has been leading UK negotiations to leave the EU, has resigned from government.

A stout honest fellow named Dave
Wrote his resignation and gave
It to Number Ten
And right about then
He dug his political grave
