Presidential campaign: slanging match

A kind of Lexicon of Insults!!!

By Annie Shepherd for The Parisian Post.

Week ending 1st April 2012. The gap in the polls between Sarkozy and Hollande narrowing; any proposed policies disappointingly drowned by tit for tat exchanges; jobs for the young seem more important for Parisians than security and anti-terrorist measures. Pollution in Paris exceeds acceptable levels for the 28th time since the beginning of the year. Aung SanSuu Ki wins a historic place in the Burmese parliament.

Has it come to this?

Mélenchon magpie calls the ganet a bat,

and ganet Le Pen shouts back ‘villainous prat!’

But that’s in the tree tops; down in the branches

Sarko stalks blackbird Hollande’s nest

walking on eggs while blackbird dances

preening his feathers, doing his best

hop skip and a jump and flies off to Mayotte

garlands of jasmin, collecting more votes

yet no jobs for the young and soaring prices.

What will crow promise during this crisis?

Police, security, speed and motion

while the young still wait for some magic potion.

Once Third Man Bayrou like a booby bird sighs

look at the money spent – crow’s demise

Bettencourt scandal and all the lies.

Paris pollution soars in the heat

sticks in our throats as these birds compete

while from prison to parliament a lady in Burma

retains her dignity without a murmur.
