President Erdogan Insulting Poetry Competition

There once was a Turk Recep Tayyip,
Whose bunghole would take only the tip,
Butt-plugged President,
On the mat getting bent,
Relax your ass and your censorship.

Depth charge: This is a version of my entry in The Spectator’s “President Erdogan Insulting Poetry Competition. “

The editor says entries that should be filthy and defamatory, and he has expressed a preference for the Limerick form.  Submit your entries by email to theeditor@spectator.co.uk with a subject line of “President Erdogan Insulting Poetry Competition” before June 23. There is a £1000 prize.

The newspaper launched the contest in response to the German government’s decision to criminally prosecute a German comedian, Jan Böhmermann, for a tv appearance in which he read a poem satirizing Turkey’s dictatorial President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  You heard that right!  The German government is censoring and prosecuting a German comedian for satirizing a foreign tyrant who has persecuted journalists and undermined Turkey’s secular state, all the while building himself a palace to live in.
