[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.]

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.

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.

Because there's a Cattelan show on,
a gold throne your urine could flow on
     was in Blenheim, till this:
     someone’s taken the piss,
and the coppers have nothing to go on.

Article: "Golden, Going Gone: 18-Karat Gold Toilet Is Stolen" (New York Times, 14 September 2019)

Quote:
The golden loo is gone.

A solid 18-karat gold toilet, titled “America” by its creator, Maurizio Cattelan, was stolen early Saturday from an exhibit at Blenheim Palace, the Oxfordshire birthplace and family home of Winston Churchill.

The toilet was part of a larger exhibit featuring Mr. Cattelan’s work that began on Thursday.

It was probably stolen to show
what the better-class shitter should know -
that the roll should reside
with the loose end outside.
They’ll return it as soon as it’s so.

Inside, Ann, inside, because it doesn't tend to pull the roll down and bind either against the roll housing or the fragrant wood often tucked into the tubular axle cylinder. How you must have suffered all these months with incorrect mechanical training. When the loose end is in the back, it's easy to spin the roll about away from you about thirty-seven and one half degrees so that the end can be grasped, and then pull that free end upwards when ready.

Pomposity

Fat pompous and smug Pompeo
a month ago swearing “Don’t know”
if he phoned with Don,
conned Ukraine for a con,
still lies like Pinocchio.
