The Greek Economy

The Greek economic woes,
Are worse than the ECB knows,
With expanding inflation,*
And a rioting nation,
A default is what we suppose!

*Denotes the knowledge on behalf of the author that the main inflationary pressure is not monetary but fiscal (raised austerity VAT).

Limerick Letter #2

Dear Member of Parliament X,
You keep having scandalous sex,
I just wouldn’t mind,
But you leave me behind!
Love, Your Wife (Soon to be ex…)

Limerick Letter #1

Dear Vicar, I’ve no faith in God,
For the concept’s exceedingly odd.
An omnipotent deity,
Who hides from the laity?
Signed, An existentially miserable sod.

Brave Little Edward

Brave little Edward died today,
As he cheered for the first of May,
His heart, it burst, from too much joy,
Like a broken spring in a wind-up toy.

Anticipating a Hangover

Drink mocks me tonight.
Yet I was so controlled.
The sun will bring pain.

Young Lucy

Young Lucy attended a school,
So she wouldn't be thought of a fool,
But so stupid was she,
She failed her degree,
Though at least now she doesn't drool...

Your lips like cherries.
A long slow mischievous grin.
What promise awaits?
