In parliament, a man stood up to speak,
To comment on developments of late;
On how, due to a much-reported leak,
The cracks had widened in our fragile state.
With reference to the Premier’s affairs,
Which scrutiny now had revealed as lax,
And piled upon his growing stack of cares
A deep and burning int’rest in his tax.
This man, a vet’ran of Westminster’s halls,
Whose frequent barbs had gained a certain fame,
Was heard to raise his voice above the calls,
Of ‘Sit back down!’, ‘Uncalled for!’ and ‘For shame!’
Though from expulsion none could this man save,
‘Twas worth it for the name of ‘Dodgy Dave’!
