Limericks on Il Presidente
There was a president called Achmedinajad
Who couldn’t believe all the luck he had.
A warm standing ovation
From the Venezuelan nation
Who perceived him no more as a man who’s mad.
Another one called Lukashenko,
Europe’s last dictator they call him though,
At that party appeared
To that nation endeared,
With kudos on stage international now.
Some leaders live on in formaldehyde
Such as Lenin, by all Russians lionised.
Then there’s Stalin and Mao,
Preserved I don’t know how,
And Chavez remains chemically to guide.
I have quite a soft spot for Hugo
Built schools, hospitals, for the poor cared, though
He did stage a coup
Back in 1992
Or thereabouts, knowing 2 years of prison’s woe.
