[Sorry, the photo is too large and I can't resize it. Please follow the article link to see it.]

The caption: “No Justice for Rape.”
The photo: some chick in a cape
     that’s sheer and diaphanous,
     thus telegraphin’ us
Ogle her--buttocks to nape.

[Really, what idiot at The Telegraph thought that this photo had anything whatsoever to do with the article? Sheesh.]

Original caption: "A woman who claims she was born after her mother was raped has criticised police for not recognising her as a victim, following a failed bid to prosecute her father. CREDIT: TECHA TUNGATEJA / ALAMY STOCK PHOTO /WWW.ALAMY.COM "

I've attached a link to my favorite rendition of Moscow Mitch above in 8.

Moscow Mitch

There is a cloned turtle named Mitch
Who by cheating in DC grows rich.
He forgives Russian spies
And blocks laws with Don’s lies,
For he is the president's bitch.

If a judge should pronounce (in a brogue)
a ruling that’s anti-prorogue,
     will the rogue who is reigning
     be deaf to complaining?
Democracy isn’t in vogue.

Original caption:
A Scottish judge has retired to consider a legal attempt to block the suspension of the UK Parliament. The case is being heard at the Court of Session in Edinburgh by Lord Doherty

Is a reading that's anti-pro-rogue
pro or anti the prattle of rogues?
.......If it favours his flannel,
.......then I'm off to the Channel
to escape in my one-man pirogue.

By gestures the truth is revealed,
Say experts who’ve studied the field,
.......And a hand near the mouth
.......Means things have gone south,
And the truth is the truth’s been concealed.
