It is reported that President Trump is to visit the United Kingdom on Friday 13 July; he is expected to meet the Queen but may avoid London owing to likely protests.
#Pussy Cat, pussy cat, where have you been?
I’ve been up to London to visit the Queen.
Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.#
Perhaps he will, or maybe not,
He’s not expecting to get shot,
But there’s another reason why,
When Donald Trump comes in July,
He might not go to London Town –
Protesters there might face him down.
Quite what they’ll do we do not know,
They might throw eggs and shout and so,
Although he won’t be moved to tears,
He might have to defend his ears.
And some of them might be so rude,
With guilt of moral turpitude,
(Which would prevent, I have to say,
Their entry to the USA.
(If here you can’t follow the Bard,
Check on your US landing card.))
So this would be their chance denied,
If right round London he goes wide,
Taking, perhaps, a scenic drive,
Around the old M25.
Now Friday the thirteenth’s the date,
That’s chosen for this Head of State,
And though the choice of date seems dumb,
It might not be so bad for some.
For Donald might not have been told,
It’s been unlucky from of old,
And if protesters eggs should chuck,
Then Donald might just have to Duck!
