To Allah each day he will pray,
And a Muslim forever he’ll stay.
And his choice, as a rule,
Is a strong man – and cruel;
For democracy isn’t his way.
Smack! – into people they slam!
Look how they rampage and ram!
There goes one with a beard;
It is just as we feared!
Trucks in Sweden revert to Islam!
Poison gas? Ready tomahawks! – fire!
Rebels did it??? – Assad’s such a liar!
Arab son of a bitch!
To the rebels we’ll switch –
The good Arabs – the ones we admire.

Assad it seems has been cut down to size;
With tomahawks they’ve given him the chop.
And only time will tell if this was wise
And whether further limbs they’ll have to lop.
(Once pruning starts it can be hard to stop)
Will weakening Assad pay dividends? –
America’s now playing the world’s cop –
But backing crazies? – Oops! I mean our friends!
Well was this justified? Well it depends:
The Russians say the rebels were the cause,
But Trump’s attack the White House now defends.
Miscalculations sometimes lead to wars;
It’s best to know the truth before one acts –
Let’s hope Trump’s in possession of the facts.
I love cities – the daily attacks,
The mayhem, the murders, big Macs,
Down in the park, sitting;
Exploding Muslim maniacs.

Hello, London calling – you know where we are.
Come visit, you tourists – it’s not very far.
See our lovely city –
Its bridges – so pretty.
(Just watch that you don’t get run down by a car)

We’ve identified trucks as the cause,
So we’ve been busy drafting new laws:
Trucks that murder or maim,
Flatten, mangle or lame,
Will be blown up! (que tepid applause)
Don’t say it was terror! Be fairer!
No! Never describe bombs as terror.
Say: “Twenty nine hurt,
But no terror alert.”
Or else your report is in error.
The dead, in the streets they are lying.
At half-mast the tricolour’s flying.
And fetid the air,
Yet she seems not to care,
For poor France, the canary, is dying.

A rightwing nut was he? – Oh gosh!
Shouting Allahu Akbar? – what tosh.
The people are waking
To media faking –
This desperate mainstream whitewash.
