This interesting piece of wordplay comes from Clive Palmer, Australia’s answer to Donald Trump – a loud, fat businessman with a big ego and a fluid relationship with business ethics. Clive got into parliament in 2013 on a populist wave, but the love affair with the Palmer Party didn’t last. Now an ex-parliamentarian, he is fighting various court cases but has found time to devote himself to losing weight (30 kilograms) and writing poetry, which he puts out on his twitter and facebook accounts.
Here’s another one inspired by his love for the Australian chocolate biscuits Tim Tams:
TimTam Split/Split a Tim Tam/Insert Banana/Rap (sic) in a crepe/Put between two TimTams/Ice Cream/Surrounded by Whipped Cream/Cherry on Top
“When you’re on a diet you think about food a lot, and poetry sort of comes from within you,” says Clive.
Is this what we have to look forward to from Donald Trump some day? Bring it on. Clive may be big, but Donald’s YUGE!
