BATMANESQUE PERSONA

‘ello, ‘ello, ‘ello!!!

Three pronged approach to drugs,
Prime Minister impersonates drug squad,
Officer on a night raid in Kirkdale,
Say large sums will be earmarked for rehab,
Avoid joining Met on Westminster raid.
Don’t take sniffer dogs into spads offices,
Don’t check honourable orifices,
Ignore past ten years of service cut backs.
This laughable Batmanesque persona,
Played out on every daily news channel,
Must have been dreamt up by someone on drugs.
Move seamlessly twixt tragedy and farce,
Back and forth like a giant pendulum,
I’d love the chance to kick him up the arse.
