Ode

First there was Chaucer, then Shakespeare and Wordsworth, Shelley and Tennyson, Thomas Hardy and Ted Hughes. Now English poetry brings you Yorkshire Pudding! (Not the re-hydrating fellow in the picture below but the author of the sensitive and well-crafted ode beneath it).


Ode to Donald Trump

I would like to thump
Donald Trump
Drop the chump in the city dump
With a bump
From a battered pick-up truck
Cos who gives a flying fig
About that big ugly lump
Inflated with a hot air pump?
- Those who like Trump
Will now have the hump!
Tough!
I have said enough.
New "Spitting Image" version of Trump

  1. Now you're cooking, Mr Pudding!
    He really is a colossal chump.
    Those pesky Yanks have put up front
    A man who is a total charmer.

    1. Ho! Ho! At first I didn't get it Claire but then I guessed the ghost rhyme at the end of the fourth line. You are so naughty!

    1. Don't forget Ivanka!
      Who looks like a bananka
      When she's dressed in yellow
      With that dumbass Kushner fellow

  3. Compared to the things I say about Trump, I could almost get the impression you like the guy

    1. What ever gave you the impression that I am not fond of D.Trump? I thought I kept my feelings well-hidden.

    1. Indeed, YP, what a beautifully soulful read this poem was! And I must say I, too, think that you have shared the whole concept really well...

  6. Well YP - I, for one, didn't realise that you didn't like him !!!It's to be hoped that you won't want to go to the States any time soon......

    1. Gulp! I hadn't thought about that CG! American immigration will have someone called Yorkshire Pudding on their blacklist but (hee-hee!) that's not my real name!

  7. While I may not agree with all that President Trump stands for/does, he IS our President and deserving of the respect that goes with the office. Every President has had his flaws - some more than others, but then....don't we all? No doubt your poem is all in 'good fun' but next time you drop in for coffee, however, we should probably stick to non-political conversation just to be on the safe side ;-)

    1. Okay that's a deal. No politics or religion when I call round for coffee. I just believe that America deserves a better man or woman as its president - someone who has genuine compassion, a world vision and isn't drunk on his own ego.
