Conservative Leader election


A phrase both ironic and true

Now Boris is gone, it has a new ring

As we seek just one, from a few.

What a laugh, what a joke, as the candidates seek

To show off, with clichés so bland

Not for us, the inhabitants, we are the sheep

To be told what is good for our land.

Just the MPs, will study their charms

Listening to each misguided word

Then by a quick vote, suppress their alarms,

And continue this process absurd.

Wow! now we come towards the last throw,

To the Party they pass their control,

Let’s rely on True Blues, ‘in the Country, y’know!’

‘Cos they could not score an own goal!

Sadly, I fear, the best won’t be seen

As good candidates have been kicked aside

We need a new leader, not another has been

Going for the ‘Prime Minister Ride’.
