The new Foreign Sec known as Boris,
As a classical scholar knows Horace.
He’ll wreak havoc in Brussels,
As he flexes his muscles,
Will he fix up the eaters of Haggis?
Bastille Day, the Frogs uttered jeers!
Forgetting of course, all those years,
When the Brits rescued ‘em twice,
As they fell over like mice.
Now that’s a bit rude to our ears!
So Boris needs to be more analytical.
‘Cos his Office is ultra political.
He can make the UK much more stable,
Putting beef, lamb, & plonk on the table,
From OZ where we’re not hypercritical.
The Krauts think it’s not at all funny.
With Brits gone they need lots of money.
‘Cos the EU’s an ideological mess,
And Brussels which’ll never confess,
That the UK’s a huge pot of honey.
‘Corse, a first pressing item is Gib.
Where for 300+ years the Brits live.
Long The Rock have the Spanish espied,
So when Brexit quite soon is decried,
An Armada might sail with full jib!
The new Gov in OZ has made offers,
For Free Trade to open the coffers.
Encouraging issues no doubt,
Shows the Brits there’s some clout,
When the hats to the EU- no doffers!
From the Telegraph to Boris, no cash,
His column was given great splash.
He’ll curtail his reviews
Of the wankers EU’s
And develop aplomb and much dash.
The PM has pushed that The Trident
Will continue to be much more strident.
Dare Europe & Russia make issues,
Veiled threats from the Brits will need tissues,
Hope Boris the gap doesn’t wident.
Now on food many questions arise,
For instance, Brit cheese and pork pies.
Will the Krauts & the Frogs raise dispute
On established great heights of repute?
And will Boris ensure we’re allies?
Of war crimes our Boris has spoken
To bring justice beyond just a token.
When insurgents take flight,
And continue their fight,
In our countries preferred left unbroken.
The French balls up continues – a farce,
Now that Lagarde will be kicked in the arse.
Retrospective their laws might make sense
To high brows who perch on the bench,
Methinks they should piss off to Mars.
‘The Appointment’ says Boris, he’s humbled,
To media questions – not that he bumbled.
The future, for Britain “Much Better”.
“For all, right down to the letter”. Says The PM
Remarks that no doubt will be fumbled.
For the French, some have low opinion,
Their Socialist trends split dominion.
The people are great
‘Tis the Leaders, most hate,
When they ride the UK to oblivion.
The learnings of Boris are polymathic,
In contrast to some others – less tacit.
He surprises with charm
Conceals a strong arm,
And behaves like a seasoned diplomatic.
‘Corse. The Frogs don’t like it at all,
‘Cos the RosBifs have decided to stall,
To make decisions that GB holds dear,
For traditions and history won clear,
And show strength and prodigious large ball.
As sad as it is – to admit!
The EU is deep in the shit.
The ideals of the past
Are now mired – cannot last!
As other Members EU – will soon split.
So Lewis the leader of Clan, claims
That Wales needs much more elan!
So, take over from Boris!
Who he sees as a novice,
Have you heard of a more stupid plan?
There’ll always be an England (& Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland)!!
A FEW HOME TRUTHS A bloody good piece of journalism from OZ.
