He's very clever and he doesn't like Jeremy Clarkson. Gotta love him.

"STORM BARNEY

The storm came.
Fred knew his house
was in trouble.

Sure enough.
All that was left
after Barney: rubble."

Ahead of tonight's #Oscar2016 shenanigans, here's a poem entitled "Lines written upon receiving an Oscar". (From Twitter.)

"SIN TAX

Some things cannot be avoided;
Like Death, as far as I can tell,
Where awaits no offshore Haven
But, for them, an offshore Hell."

A new poem, via Twitter.
WAR CRHYMES

There are lots of rhymes
to be had
for 'Chilcot Report'

but the one
I shall pick
is 'still not got caught'.

I AM SORRY BUT I CANNOT ACCEPT …

I am sorry but I cannot accept the post of Prime Minister,
For there is little in my history that’s suitably sinister,
No financial irregularities, no offshore accounts,
No stock-piling of wealth in ever larger amounts.
No public school background, no Oxford, no Cambridge;
No late night liaisons with the head of a pig.
My character’s flawed also, it pains me to say;
I lie – at best – only three times a day,
I have shown compassion, empathy, contrition,
So I’m afraid I am unsuited for this position.

I am sorry but I cannot accept the post of England Manager,
For whilst I tick the box entitled ‘well-meaning amateur‘,
I worry that my grasp of tactics is too strong,
That I might be able to understand what is wrong
And how to change it. I can also be meticulous
In my preparations, a trait which would be ridiculous
In any manager. I have a track record of winning games,
By creating teams, not just picking names,
And getting them to stick the ball in the goal,
So I’m afraid I am unsuited for this role.
