Kept his woad in
Pandora's Box
Along with some odd socks.

One Defence Secretary, Former, Disgraced, for the use of


Doctor Liam Fox

Prescribed pulling up their socks

To directors idling with their board

On the golf links more than exporting abroad.

Doctor Liam Fox

Added vegan woks

To the jam and bassoons, if you please,

He’ll export post-Brexit to the Chinese.

“Don’t seek substitutes;” (he never tells the House)

“Keep your existing trade.” (he hasn’t the nouse)


Or perhaps you like

Not the sharpest scalpel in the box.

No vetinarian, he

Couldn’t a scapegoat see.

Gave him no sleepless nights.

Like wee dinosaur footprints
