He seems like a jolly old cove
In his robes of black and mauve
But now, we fear
He wants justice “two-tier”
All hail Lord Chancellor Gove!
Despite school-boy features
Gove bullied the teachers
Now lawyers are vexed
As Justice is next
Much lamentation and wailing
Under Christopher Grayling
And his budgetary raid
on Legal Aid
But now, Hand in Gove!
The sun shining out of his behind
No he’s not like any other Tory,
Gove tells a different story
Is he as bad as he looks?
He has at least restored prisoners books…
But as for Human Rights
He wants to turn out the lights.
An image of Gove to serve as his totem?
That of a bullfrog escaping a scrotum*
