It is reported that the Lib Dem’s have announced that they will appoint a Happiness Minister if they win the next general election.
The Liberal Dems do like a joke,
And now they’re not led by a bloke,
It seems to me that they have found,
They can again retrace old ground.
Their first old joke is they could win,
With lots of votes, a bit of spin,
And so get into Downing Street,
Which is a pretty bad deceit.
But they insist that if they do,
One thing that they will do for you,
Is they’ll appoint, well more or less,
A Minister of Happiness.
Don’t laugh, for that would be his job,
He could be smart, perhaps a slob,
But one thing they forgot to say,
Is we have one of those today.
He’s in his fifties, slightly fat,
Not generally worth looking at;
He acts as if he’s not a care,
Beneath a mop of yellow hair.
He’s Mr Happy, like a clown,
All smiles and seldom does he frown,
And he is, as we’re all aware,
In Downing Street already there.
So will he do? I don’t suppose,
The Lib Dem’s quite one one of those,
But if they win he’s got no job,
So might come cheap, around five bob!
