Real Fake News

The former Lord began his speech
and informed the House he would resign,
stating his intention to return
to the planet Venus where Elvis and Diana
hand out hot crumpets on a plate
to visitors from Earth or Mars.
The former Lord sat down
and the Speaker asked for order.
When he rose again to speak,
my TV screen became a blizzard of static.
His page on Wikipedia is shorter now
and in a language not my own,
that I cannot change. I searched the phrase
“hot crumpet” and got… something else.
