Edmund Clerihew Bentley
Wove poesy and wit so gently
Two rhyming couplets were his thing
Not conscious uncoupleting


Still full of herself

Shining brightly though
Long being in Earth's shadow
Luna starts waning

Game of Thrones

Male Members in House
Rate female MPs by their boobs.
And we them by theirs.

Or do you prefer the Haiku below. Feel free to comment.

Gender power games
Played on fantastic thrones? No;
Green leather benches.

These haiku were inspired by news articles from 2004 and 2014.

And in a display of even-handedness MPs appear to be exercising asymmetric sexual power in gay relationships also. Equality of a kind but hardly laudable...



I, Spy...

Johnny Worricker
Laboured under his unwieldy moniker.
Whereas Bond got the gambling, the guns, the girls;
Got to act the complete swine amongst pearls.
