Macron Bleu!

The City of Lights
Is heading for the caves:
The French by a landslide,
Have dug their own graves.

email to a minister

Item: Heritage minister wants subsidies for “ailing” news industry ; see: Molyneux

Your proposal is amazing, 
And leaves the country speechless:
To make the lackey press 
Official government leeches!
Though no remedy is known,
For blue pill overdose,
Your merciful injection,
Should bring their suffering to a close
And then these national treasures,
(If you should so decree them)
Can rest with the other fossils,
In the National Museum.

Ivankuished

            The Hundred Days 
Like Napoleon’s comeback campaign, 
That ended in exile and wane:
After Bannon’s Waterloo,
And the daughter's deft coup,
Restoration is on once again.

Cowboys and Indians

Item: Trump and media side with Syrian White Helmets

Trump’s off the reservation,
With Tomahawks in his quiver,
As we learn to our consternation
That he’s an Indian giver.

He signed the treaty and made a vow 
That he’d never let them down;
But he’s joined up with the cowboys now,
Who are terrorizing the town.

It’s the all-too familiar saga,
With the posse going to bat
For the renegade red of MAGA,
Who suddenly donned a white hat.

Reefer Jihadness

News Items: a majority of Canadians unhappy with “Islamophobia" motion 
              Canada to decriminalize Marijuana
                    
As Trudeau delights cannabis owners,
In the wake of his Islamist boners,
He now fairly basks
In grow-ops and mosques, 
Supported by all kinds of stoners!

Pulling Strings vs Learning the Ropes

Trump tried to cut the Gordian knot but alack,
The naughts wouldn’t cut him any slack.
Now he could learn from that ancient lord:
Never send a pen to do the job of a sword!
