DePfeffelschrift PAGE FOURTEEN : David Birkett

After Partygate

Let’s just move on, for this amiable bluffer
Was born to drink wine while the hoi polloi suffer.
The voters? The voters? They like it rougher;
It gives them more character, makes them all tougher.
Eton and Bullingdon – these are his buffer
Ensuring he gives not a hoot nor a stuff; a
Nice piece of work, is this huffer and puffer.
And if the electorate hollers ‘Enough!’, a
Replacement will come, and one even duffer.

David Birkett was born 1961 in Malta, but schooled and raised in England. He is a member of the North Herts stanza of the Poetry Society, PoetryID.
