"Epitaph on the Politician Himself"

Here richly, with ridiculous display,
The Politician's corpse was laid away.
While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged
I wept: for I had longed to see him hanged.
Hilaire Belloc

Mr. Sharkey keeping us well versed and there are many other fine poems worth reading at the link most readers will enjoy.
