Now, I must confess, I had to "google" the word doggerel to see what is actually means. The image explains it all I hope!
Anyhow, following the great effort from John Hale we have another contender in the category from Club member Ann Barrowclough.
"To sit is sullen silence in a dull dark dock
In a pestilential prison with a life long lock
Awaiting the sensation of a short sharp shock
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block’
So sang Nanki Poo in the Mikado many years ago.
Little did he envision the pitiful plight we today know
Imprisoned in our houses our faces not to show.
If over seventy beyond our gates we surely cannot go.
We can join a bubble with a helpmate our shopping to do
A teddy in our window waves at passers-by, a dolly too.
A jab we can all have to prevent getting the flu
But if the police catch us out then we’ll be in the poo.
So good people of today take this message to heart
Show the rest of the world New Zealand is smart.
Of the horrendous statistics we won’t be a part
Unlike other countries who seem to give not a f**t."
