Why Shouldn’t Muppets Rule The World?

Imagine if the muppets won elections. Let’s just consider that idea for a moment. What if the actual muppets legitimately took control of actual countries? A government of muppets sounds too far flung an idea to be realistic. Or does it?

The Muppet Show isn’t that far fetched when considering politics.

Kermit could easily grab some votes with his fun anecdotes and rhetoric. I could imagine him taking on a senior position such as Chancellor or Home Secretary. He would share the wealth, at least. Let’s face it, he would be single minded and considerate. Not like the money grabbers we often have looking after our finances – increasing our taxes while avoiding paying them themselves.

Fozzy bear would make a great Foreign Secretary. His charm and appeal would allow him to schmooze foreign leaders and his humour would enable him to earn their favour and drive some great deals.

As for Miss Piggy, she would be amazing as Prime Minister or President. I can already envisage her instagram, posing in government buildings and shoving the Downing Street cat to one side, not enabling anyone to upstage her. And as for parties… she would have loads of fun while letting our policies go down the drain. Not much different from what is actually happening right now.

Animal would rock his way into parliament and provide crazy nights of live music at the White House. He could be a good Health Secretary with his wild abandon and laid back attitude. I can see him promoting ‘health care for everyone’ and blowing his budget quickly. At least his intentions would be worthy. Wouldn’t they?

As you can tell, there would not be much difference if our governments were replaced by the Muppets. Politics would be more entertaining while the same old mistakes were being made. At least the Muppets would be genuine leaders, not self-obsessed and detached from the real struggle of paying extortionate energy bills.

I originally wrote this on Ko-if but enjoyed it so much and now have decided to include it within my blog. I hope you enjoyed it and can suggest some other muppets who could replace world leaders and possibly do those jobs better.

Covid, Covid, Go Away – Poem

Covid, covid, go away!

Don’t come again another day.

You’re doing my head in

With your constant aching.

My nose is always running,

At night I keep on waking.

As for my throat, you make me sore,

Never felt like this before.

I didn’t think Covid would hurt me much,

But seems that I was wrong, as such.

After two years avoiding you,

You came to get me, got me in a stew.

So Covid, covid go away!

You really hack me off today!

This is a poem I wrote just now in response to two sleepless nights since I began feeling the symptoms of Covid. For another of my little poems check out We need a world. I am going back to bed to not sleep.
