One seat, too many feet!
Trampling on toes, ready to defeat,
Like Badgers and Otters!
We watch as they dance to the beat.
One politician barks and takes painful bites,
Armed thoughts with flying spittle, laden down for a fight,
Indeed it is quite a sight!
In mad glee the thatch flies off the hook,
It’s plain to see there’s not much in his nook!
From too many tweets,
Not very discreet,
One politician tells tall tales,
It’s difficult to tell,
Which side of the face to face,
There is drought in this place!
One politician sleeps on his feet,
It’s a wonder what will happen to the seat?
Will he slumber?
Like a lumber?
This is simply, just not it!
One politician reckons since there’s no anarchy,
Maybe it’s my turn, let’s form a monarchy,
O! It’s tiring to watch the entire malarkey!
