It’s Christmas in the Asylum (belated version)

This poem is based on a story which appeared over Christmas, and which was taken to be true!

AWOL = absent without leave


The Christmas gammon have gone spitting mad,

they think asylum seekers are going AWOL

for Christmas: yes here in the UK it’s that bad,

with nothing around here but strife and trouble,

that’s why those “foreigners” want to go home!

Gee Beebie News are having a meltdown,

they’re at it like rabid dogs with a bone;

Parliament’s an asylum, the lunatics in charge,

can we not send them to live on that barge?

I love the penultimate line. How true!
