How many a dreamy eyed wanna-be Rock star?
How many a shaggy haired raggedy jeaned T-shirted teen
Has plugged in their second hand but so precious guitar
And ripped into ‘Johnny B. Goode’, ‘Carol’ or ‘Maybeline’?
Or ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘Come On’ or ‘Sweet little Sixteen’?
Or ‘Memphis’, ‘Almost Grown’,’Little Queenie’ or ‘Nadine’?
Whenever, wherever a hot band scorches some roadside bar
Within every blazing riff Chuck Berry’s spirit is heard and seen,
It would be a so much quieter and even sadder world by far
If Chuck Berry and his God given Gibson had never been.
Microwaves are spying on us, according to Mister Trumps trusty adviser. Is no bag of popcorn safe from the prying eyes of the microwave?
Going Down Swinging.
Kellyannes becoming more than paranoid
About the listening devices Barack deployed,
Even in the safety and privacy of one’s own home
‘They’ can tap your phone and then its free to roam.
The blinking stereo was first to go-
It has a ‘record’ function, you know-
Kellyanne has her own way of stopping
Any as-yet unsubstantiated eaves-dropping.
She slings out the phones, land line and all,
Not once thinking Donald made a bad call,
Working like crazy, pushing it to the brink,
Stopping but for a snack and Energy drink.
By wildly yanking the cord from the wall she was able to disable
The Surround Sound Massive big screen TV complete with cable,
But neither MacGyver or any Electronics Expert could save
Her innocent baseball bat bludgeoned beeping microwave.
New Zealand’s Prime Minister plans to up the limit of receiving Superannuation- or pension- from 65 to 67. A long way off for most people but fury has been unleashed.
Bill English might wind up regretting this one.
Not So Superman.
Bill’s always been a numbers man,
Bill discounts Johns retirement plan,
As the wave of baby-boomers arrive
Bill wants you to work past sixty-five
Heaven knows you don’t.
What Bill will take he’ll grudgingly return,
Till then, for two years, you Pay As You Earn,
And should the Lord retire you before sixty-seven
Bill sure hopes you will find your reward in Heaven.
Jeff Sessions is learning the hard way
That you should be aware of what you say
To foreign folk who might make you regret it.
Jeff made this mistake and SO wants to forget it.
Jeff, a Session with Sergey, who is HUGELY suspect
Should surely be something you should recollect,
Yet that conversation did not resonate with Jeff,
Or else Jeff is willfully, or skillfully, turning deaf.
Jeff now says his words were of little consequence,
Nothing to cause offence or harm national defence,
Jeff might not recall the details, but Don, rest assured-
Luckily Sergey diplomatically recorded Jeff’s every word.
