Prince Metternich was midwife to many nations
Goebbels, propagandist, stuck to allegations
Lawrence wrote Chatterley to consternation
Dyer of Amritsar received our Lords’ ovations!
Perfumo and Archer fell foul of perfumed pillows
Behaviour fitting odious Toad of Grahame’s Willows
Depleted Mirror pension funds caused concern
Downing Street memos initiate warfare, we learn!
From Whitehouse tapes and such hear of Watergate
Clinton did not have sexual relations, tis too late!
From Mai-Li to Haditha US soldiers massacre civilians
Teaching reality deviates from Kaye’s Far Pavilions
Patrick Mackeown, July 2006
