‘Three Limericks’

Kagame

There once was a man named Kagame
Who used to be head of the army.
But now he’s the Prez
We must do as he says,
Even though a third term might alarm ye!

Waiguru

There once was a C.S., Waiguru,
Whose choice to resign should impress you.
When rumours were slung,
She did the right thing
And stepped down as Public Folk should do.

Francis

There once was a Pontiff named Francis
Whose minders were rather alarmist:
They shut down the city,
Made movement quite tricky.
One reason that I’m a Nonconformist!
