BOJO (ET TU GOVE)
Nigel Parsons 2016
Tune: Bobby Shaftoe

Boris Johnson, Dearie me.
Oh dear, the ignominy.
Will Gove prosper? Wait and see.
(But) Boris has been shafted!

   Boris Johnson, bright & fair.
   Can't control his shock of hair.
   Like a cuddly teddy bear.
   Bonnie Boris Johnson

Boris fought against Remain.
Thought he might the 'top job' gain.
Gove reneged, and, oh the pain.
Boris has been shafted!

   Boris Johnson, bright & fair.
   Can't control his shock of hair.
   Like a cuddly teddy bear.
   Bonnie Boris Johnson

...cont

Michael Gove has gone astray,
Let's support Theresa May.
Possibly he'll rue the day -
That he shafted Boris.

Missing a like button again :-D

The original Bobby Shafto has been identified with a resident of Hollybrook, County Wicklow, Ireland, who died in 1737.[1] It was used by the supporters of Robert Shafto (sometimes spelt Shaftoe), who was an eighteenth-century British Member of Parliament (MP) for County Durham (c. 1730–97), and later the borough of Downton in Wiltshire.[1] Supporters used another verse in the 1761 election:

    Bobby Shafto's looking out,
    All his ribbons flew about,
    All the ladies gave a shout,
    Hey for Boy Shafto![1]


(Wikipedia)

Boris Johnson's looking glum
Gove has stuck it up his bum
Lady May says tell your Mum
Or you'll get further shafted...

:-) ???

Often when I post off-the-cuff stuff like this I invite additional verses.
I failed to this time, and yet (as Jeff Wayne says) "But still they come!"

Thanks for the addition.
