Overqualified

A clipart image of a man looking suspiciously like Boris Johnson.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 12 May 2021, whimsical. I’m sorry I couldn’t resist the last line.

He was never a shining bright spark,
And was stuck what career to embark,
But his charm it was whimsical,
So chose pathway political,
And now he’s running the f’in country

  1. In my house we always believed his hair style was stage-managed, Boris is a showman at heart an intellectual clown, a very clever man. I didn’t want him as our prime minister, but I’ve never disliked him.

    1. I agree that he is totally calculating. I think he’s very good at working out what matters to people, although I think it’s a shame that more things don’t matter. But that’s not his fault, just something he is using.
      Way back when he made his comments about the new runway, I decided that this was a guy who would play to the crowd. I think that’s still the case.
