As poor folks face crippling inflation,
Begins to sound fishy

If Boris looked more messianic.
But Cabinet changing
Is just rearranging
The deckchairs upon his Titanic!

And the Co-op is open, that's when

With a suitcase in hand
And return to booze up Number Ten!

Though it had no address: His guitar,

And half-postcode would send
It direct to across from the Spar!

A courageous adventurer, Preet
Has achieved a remarkable feat
In her role model's role:
She has reached the South Pole
Trekking solo across the ice sheet!
