In This Bleak Midwinter

  [vote for,

In the bleak mid-winter
Tory winds blew cold;
Man with heart of iron,
Boris was enthroned;
Votes had fallen, vote on vote,
Vote on vote,
In the bleak mid-winter
Not so long ago.

Brexit cannot hold Him
Nor EU sustain,
Socialism shall flee away
When He comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
Ten Downing Street sufficed
Next to God Almighty —
Johnson and his wife.

Enough for Him, whom tabloids
Worship night and day,
A fizzing magnum of champagne
And a Corbyn run away;
Enough for Him, whom Angels
Fall down before,
The forty seat majority
Which him adore.

Angels and Archangels
May have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air;
But only Mrs Johnson
In her drunken bliss
Worshipped mophead Boris
With a kiss.

What can I give Him,
Right wing as I am? —
If I were a banker
I would bring him cash;
If I were a businessman
I would do my part, —
Yet what I can I give Him, —
Votes were just the start.

       //Johnson and his wife// - Who?!

       Well, someone's wife (allegedly) ....   

       Like David Lloyd George ...   

       As General Haig said, "I can't abide these politicians. I can't trust them with anything - they all tell their wives. Except for Lloyd George, of course, and he tells somebody else's wife ..."

       In the bleak midwinter used to be my favourite carol.

       Mrs Palmer perchance?   

       Now if Johnson were his christian name he'd be..   

       Hmm.. there's still hope for the future though, maybe we can find Mr Johnson a nice Miss Palmer to marry, & they can hyphenate their names for their children?
