MACRON WINS!

Macron

It is reported that Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidential election.

So Macron wins, donc quelle surprise,
And he achieved the feat with ease,
For everybody thought he would,
But not because he’s any good,
Rather they liked less Ms Le Pen,
Who’ll have to wait to try again.

Most will heave a sigh of relief,
That Ms Le Pen has come to grief,
But some will curse and likely say,
They don’t want Macron anyway.

His party is so very new,
He might not know quite what to do,
And so whatever his intent,
It may be the French Parliament,
Will get itself into a stew,
And frustrate what he wants to do.

But that is for a later date –
That’s what I think at any rate –
And though true fans may be quite few,
He’s very keen on the EU.

And the EU is keen on him,
For if he’d lost things would be grim,
With Ms Le Pen determined to,
An awful lot of trouble brew.

But now they think all is secured,
The EU’s future now assured,
And they might think that from this day,
Opponents will all fade away.

So to reward this French result,
Claude Juncker has sought to insult,
The British, saying from next week,
He will no longer English speak.

I s’pose when Brexit is complete,
The only English-speaking state,
Remaining in the then EU,
Is Ireland who speak Irish too.

So English may then cease to be,
Une langue officielle de l’UE,
But if English is not then used,
Things could get terribly confused.

But back to France where it may seem,
La langue Francaise now reigns supreme,
And though for now they are quite chuffed,
The Germans might yet see them stuffed!

EBENEZER BEAN

Ebenezer Bean 1

I am Ebenezer Bean.  I write a daily blog based on one of the news stories in the day’s papers.  It’s in verse and is supposed to be funny.

I have written thirteen books, listed below and all available in paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon.  Just search for Ebenezer Bean or use the link below and ignore the general of the same name in the American Civil War who is no longer alive.  Happy reading.

HILARIOUS HISTORY  Two thousand years of English history from the Romans to the Victorians told in verse in five volumes.  Comprehensive, accurate and hilariously funny – but not necessarily in that order.

FIRST SEPTEMBER  A gripping terrorist novel set in the aftermath of the bombing of PanAm Flight 103 over Lockerbie.

THE LONG SPOON  A fictional political thriller telling the ‘inside story’ of the Irish Peace Process.

REBEL RHYMES  Twenty famous fairy stories told in hilarious verse.  Much funnier than the originals.

CRUNCH!  Over thirty sketches of political foolery and other important matters of the day for politicians and other nuisances.  Witty and amusing although some of the politicians may not agree.

OUCH!  Lessons from history for politicians who think they know best.

RANDOM WRITINGS  Witty commentary on the important matters of the day including the Credit Crunch.  Plus a collection of general ramblings about all sorts of things including some jokes and a puzzle.

RANDOM WRITINGS  (ZigZag SpeeedRead Edition)  The witty commentary of Random Writings (Second Edition) set in ZigZag SpeeedRead for faaaster reading and extra value.  The world’s first ZigZag SpeeedRead paperback.

RHYME AND PREJUDICE  Jane Austen’s famous classic novel re-written in verse.  Accurate and faithful to the original but absolutely hilarious.  Written and published during the novel’s bicentenary year for added authenticity.  Expect to see it mentioned on the next ten pound note!

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE  So similar to the above as to be indistinguishable.  Search for either but don’t buy both to avoid disappointment.

Note:
Bean’s Blogs is light-hearted re-reporting of news items of the day for amusement only. On occasions this involves mild exaggeration and choices of words which are humorous and can also be made to rhyme and scan. This should be obvious in the context of the verses. While every care is taken to avoid any inaccuracies or incorrect assertions to which individuals referred to may take exception, should these occur we will be happy to make corrections. Happy reading.
