With his 'spirit machine' in position,
He said "It's the human condition:
From this faint pinkish glow,
An observer will know
That the soul makes a photon emission".

A dissident's versification
Included some veiled information
On how to depose
His Soviet foes
Oppressing the great Russian nation.

The Tempest, whose theme is aquatic,
Is potentially quite operatic.
Its turbulent maria,
Framed in an aria,
Often prove very dramatic.

King Louis said "L'état, c'est moi"
With a gesture befitting le roi.
In his great gilded hall,
The monarch, though small,
Had a dominant je ne sais quoi.

The chapel is lovely, they say,
And the villagers want it to stay.
They oppose to a man
The ludicrous plan
To 'build a church fit for today'.

When the teenage phenomenon started,
Pop music was rather half-hearted.
Then the tempo increased
As the rock-and-roll beast
Escaped, and decorum departed.

Obesity, often severe,
Is plainly observable here.
Among Class D/E,
Most bodies you'll see
Are bloated with pizza and beer.

If a candidate isn't too bright,
They'll trot out some comment that's trite.
But some are so dense
They can't even make sense.
It's truly a pitiful sight.

Some conifer forests today
Are looking in quite a bad way.
Has drilling for oil
Affected the soil?
I cannot with confidence say.

A mighty performance, it seemed –
The audience wouldn't have dreamed
That the singer was miming,
Until his bad timing
Betrayed him. "You phoney!", I screamed.
