Spivvy Poohead is the prime minister elected
In the Zootopian kingdom of mUGH;
As a gadfly he is ego-directed
And he thrives on a love-me drug.
King Lawksamercy is the head of state
(With mad-hatter flunkeys at court);
He's a popular source of an annual debate
With his family on income support.
Welcome to the Zootopian kingdom of mUGH, where the citizens - ruled by King Lawksamercy and their elected leader, Spivvy Poohead - find themselves dragged into wars they don't understand, overshadowed by smoky domes of doom and opressed by a media culture of glamshitology.
Those who can still think for themselves are comforted only by laughchoke - or satire - of which this collection of poetry is a sterling example.
