Political Scape Goat?

Political Scape Goat

Heard the one about The Queen’s Speech being delayed as the goat skin parchment won’t dry in time? I did. Is it the ultimate example of a Political Scape Goat?

Political Scape Goat?

The goat skin can’t dry in time for The Queen
to solemnly announce the coalition
of the Tory party and the DUP
to an angry politician, or three,
who wish Mrs May hadn’t done what she did.
Has the farmer already taken a kid
from the local herd to make the vellum
for the royal word? Perhaps Her Majesty
could make herself heard digitally,
and free the goat to live, breathe, bleat,
while MP’s give thanks for One’s first Tweet.
